Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 11, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Friday, October THE LETHBRIDOE HERALD Ballet troupe invited to festival in Venice Joan Waterfield's. Entertainment eye Entertainment season in city best ever WINNIPEG (CP) The Royal Winnipeg Ballet has been invited to appear next summer at a special festival in Venice that is aimed at assisting efforts to save the old Italian city from gradually sinking into the sea. The festival, scheduled for June and July, is to focus world attention on plans by United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organizations (UNESCO) to halt the steady erosion of the city of the Adriatic Sea. The invitation was extended by director Maurice Bejart of HOTEL TAVERN ENTERTAINMENT NIGHTLY NEXT WEEK "COUNTRY and LARK" Lounge Nightly: MAURICE CREVIER SOUTHERN ALBERTA THEATRES Theatre Walt Disney's "OLD YELLER" in, color.

If finances for the trip to Venice can be arranged, the Royal Winnipeg will appear in either Teatro La Fenice or the Palazzo Dei Dogi. A special outdoor performance also would be given for audiences in gondolas on the grand canal. Each dance company attending the festival is re- quested to present the Euro- pean premiere of a ballet related in theme either to Venice or to Diaghilev and Ni- jinsky, the two men most identified with the revival of ballet in western Europe and America early in this century. The Royal Winnipeg has been invited to perform elsewhere in Italy and other European countries, and might combine this and the Venice appearances into a major tour next summer. LOTS OF WATFR The earth's total surface area is about 197.2 million square miles, of which the land makes up only 57.2 million square miles. Never within memory has there been such a season of entertainment in this city. Anne of Green Gables came io us from the Charlottetown Festival) a show with the magnitude and sparkle df Ice Capades plays the holiday weekend at our new Sportsplex, there's Citadel Theatre's production of The Rivals coming from Edmon- ton, the smash Canadian hit Ten Lost Years from Toronto just ahead. In the pop-rock area there's The New York Dolls, The Righteous rBrothers, Joe Cocker and possibly Helen Reddy. It not only boggles the mind but will certainly blast the budget. So with all that's big, brash, almost certainly excellent and surely-expensive, a production from community theatre may seem like small beer. Yet Arsenic and Old Lace may be just your cup of elderberry wine. A melee of comedy, the sweet errantry of nostalgia may give the Playgoers production a special appeal. But the fun of the Joseph Kesselring play is as fresh as when it was first acclaimed on Broadway.

Theodorakis, whose music was banned in Greece by the military regime that ruled from April, 1967, to last July, received a standing ovation from the audience. The concert conducted by Theodorakis, a former leftist parliamentarian, featured his own compositions. Many of them were written during his imprisonment here by the military junta and later in Paris, following his release in 1970.

Record price for painting CHICAGO (AP) A painting by American ex- pressionist Willem deKooning that cost less than in 1953 is reported-to have yield- ed the highest price ever paid for the work of a living artist Woman V, an oil and char- coal painting, was purchased this week by the Australian National Art Gallery in Canberra, Robert Gray, a Chicago art dealer, confirmed Friday. The price was reported to have been about more than the previous record sale of a Pablo Picasso painting before his death. Gray, however, declined to confirm the sale price. And where do the players come from for these produc- tions? Checking the cast list of "Arsenic" you'll find two broadcasters, two teachers, a university student, an artist, a singer, an entomological technician, an insurance agent, a university professor, an hairdresser, a theatre manager. Thirteen in number and maybe that has something to with the trials and tribulations of mounting the current production. There are classes to be taught, meetings to cover, shifts to be worked. All at times that might reasonably considered possible for rehearsal. Not to mention home obligations and the always present danger of the flu's bug. Yet the show will go on 'next Thursday, Saturday and Sunday. Because that's the way it is. Not just because of the deter- mination of the players. Because of loyalty and sup- port in the ranks that finds Coaldale Little Theatre's Murray Robison running the lights for the show while wife Kaye handles the costumes; Barbara Day, mother of on stage Mike creating a "lifelike" corpse, actor Ed Bayly's wife Linda tackling for the first time the job of production manager, actress Nora Rose's .husband on deck as stage manager, Bill Matheson's Muriel heading the makeup "crew, Playgoer president Fran Rude, who will be working "front of house" recruiting her husband for back stage work, Anne Reid walking miles to round up props, artist Elizabeth Blair designing a "collector's item" poster and the set, Cathy Evins taking her courage in hand to go on stage for the first time. Jack Warburton, up to his neck in rehearsals for Zorba" rallying to the rescue to fill a cast vacancy. All these and more, slogging lines, sewing, painting, sawing, building, painting. And then the curtain will go up on the "mad" Brewsters who not only have skeletons in the closet but a clutch of cor- pses in the cellar not to men- tion a random couple in the window seat. Hopefully something to give you a laugh after the elections and a breath of warm humanity All this work for a three day run? For what at times has reached the brink of despair and been rescued by laughter?
