Most recent to open was the Sherman Theatre in the Welsh Cardiff Others open- ed m Harlech and Aberystwyth and two more are under construction in North Wales All this coincides with a rapid expansion of the Welsh College of Music and since 1949 housed in Cardiff Castle but recently moved to new buildings in Bute not far from its old home. These new buildings include yet another the Bute opened in and will soon boast a small opera-cum-concert hall as to seat 600 and due for completion by the end of 1974 Five ago such a revolutionary development in theatre in Wales was un- thinkable The -only professional theatres that functioned all the year round were the New Car- and the Grand both built at the end of the last century These still are but serve only a Jimited area Apart from visits by English theatre companies and attempts in the early part of the century to establish a Welsh National drama in Wales has largely been the province of the amateur Any young Welshman or woman who wished to eam a living in drama were forced to cross the border into England. Many did so and became famous. The names of Emlyti Richard Rachel Roberts. Hugh Grif- fiths and Sian Phillips im- mediately spring to mind. Though the situation is much the same there soon may be a change. In 1962 the Welsh Arts Coun- cil set up a professional drama the Welsh Theatre Company and its Welsh language counterpart Cwmni Theatr Cymru Both have toured extensively in Wales and sometimes across the border. they have not developed as and for two basic reasons neither had a base theatre to work from and there has been a lack ol suitable theatres for them to play in. Standards suf- fered because productions had to be tailored for the inadequate stages of village and school halls. The opening of the new theatres has helped remedy this situation They provide both companies with new op- but confront them with a new challenge for now they will be expected to tour productions of a standard that was impossible before No need for oil price hike TORONTO Neil Canadian director of the Chemical and Atomic says there is no need for an oil-price increase in markets served by Canadian crude. is ample there is no shortage and the industry has had fantastic crude price he said in an interview Wednesday.
