This year marked the last time the DDF will hold a com- petitive festival for top ama- teur groups across the country. Come 1971, Theatre Canada will rise from the ashes of the DDF and will introduce a non-com- petitive "showcase" at the Na- tional Arts Festival in Ottawa. Both amateur and profession- al groups, on an invitational ba- sis, will take part in the six- day event. Bui; what the exact form of the festival will be, who will in- vite the plays and what com- position Theatre Canada will take seem up in the air. Regional and zone festivals will continue, if organizers can be found to sponsor them. But the winners will not nec- essarily go to Ottawa. Indeed there appears to be some jus- tifiable fears that professional plays at the Ottawa showcase will fill the evening slots and amateur 'productions will be slipped into the afternoons. Be that as it may, the 1970 DDF in Winnipeg last week was a personal disappointment to me and, judging from remarks by some of The Hostage cast members, to them also. It was interesting to see six productions from across Can- ada, and to attend the private adjudications by Guy Beaulne, but the entire tenor of the festi- val was blahsville. Playgoers of L e t h b r i d g e, whose production of The Hos- tage was the western zone rep- resentative, brought back the first DDF award to southern Al- berta. Sheila Pisko won the Grace Elliott Trudeau schol- arship for the best actor or ac- tress under 26 years. Lethbridge, therefore, has no ax to grind with the DDF over lack of awards. However, the adjudications of M. Beaulne, director general ol theatre and drama conser- vatories in Quebec, appeared to ping pong throughout the week. Lethbridge, to my mind, re- ceived an honest appraisal in public and a thorough adjudica- tion in private. Then came Spoon River An- thology from Labrador City. M. Beaulne dismissed the produc- tion as one which didn't come near the standard he expected at the national festival. He was perhaps unnecessarily terse and unspecifie, but it seemed an honest judgment. Then came Survivors Survi- vants from Montreal and A Day in the beath of Joe Egg from Hamilton. Both plays were praised, and if one quarrelled with the adjudications, it would probably be on personal pref- erence grounds. But Teahouse of the August Moon, which received little crit- icism in public, was a produc- tion which didn't come near the standard the adjudicator ad- mitted he had set for the first two plays. Admittedly everyone is for the cast comprised mainly inmates from the Mani- toba penitentiary at Stony Mountain. But here is no conceivable reason why the level expected of the Labrador group should not be applied to all entries. To make matters worse, the best supporting actress trophy went to a member of the Tea- house cast. Her performance didn't come close lo the acting of Prunella Greene in Joe Egg or Hazel Skaronski in The Hos- tage. M. Beaulne's choices and every one is entitled to his own opinion fluctuated too much to be credible. Winnipeg was an unhappy choice for the festival. It's just another large city popula- tion about with some of the best in Canadian profes- sional ballet, drama and music. Amateur theatre in Winnipeg must seem just another drop in the cultural bucket. Participants in former DDFs have talked about the close re- lationship which grew up among the different casts and the fes- tival's site. Winnipeg is too large to allow much spontane- ous interplay between the city and a group of visitors, particu- larly when they are housed in an expensive hotel. DDF organizers presumably tried to get around this by hav- ing afternoon jaunts to the Win- nipeg Centennial Centre (more than a plaza and a private residence. Now the centennial centre seemed a good idea, but plazas and a private residence don't have much tie-in with drama, nor with giving visitors a sense of the city. I went to one technical work- shop. In place of what I thought would be some professional sug- gestions on lighting or make-up or set design; we were intro- duced to a school's stage set- up, its media arrangements and its coffee machine.

And the competi- tive angle gives it an edge of professionalism, since thea t r e professionals work in an atmo- sphere of competition. Amateur theatre will keep on without- the DDF's final festi- val, but it paved the way for a lot of enthusiasm and the im- petus among amateurs to take to the professional trail. I believe the DDF has taken a route which will further re- inforce the idea that theatre is for the elite. It should be an art form for every person. And a disappointing experi- ence with one festival does not discount the impressive work the DDF has done since it was established in 1938. Theatre Canada will have to go some to catch up. NOTES: The CBC-TV's cover- age of the DDF Wednesday night had two problems: (1) You had to stay awake until p.m. when it ran on CJLH, (2) You had lo stay awake through the program. There were problems with sound and the canned laugh man should be canned and the cameras dur- ing the trophy presentations were situated so you caught a full face of the giver and only the hair-style of the receiver. And after shots of feedlots .and farm laud, one half expected The Hostage cast would be shown tying up their horses the Chinook Arch. But the show did give a sense of the festival for those who didn't attend. Af- ter tlie short shrift the One Prai- rie Province got from the CBC last week, we'll take any crumbs offered us.
