THEATRE CALGARY PRODUCTION RECORDS


Series 15


Mainstage. — 1969-1984. — The central activity of any theatre company is, of course, the production of plays. What distinguishes one production from another, however, and one company from another, is the manner in which the plays are produced – the set designs, the use of lights, and the perspective taken by the director. The mood and tone of a production is determined by which aspects of the play the director decides to emphasize. — The series consists of the prompt scripts and production information which are the essence of Theatre Calgary and its Mainstage productions from 1969-1984.

Series 16


Second Stage. — 1977-1979. — In 1977 Harold Baldridge introduced a “Second Stage” series of plays which offered less conventional fare than the Mainstage productions. Second Stage existed for only two seasons. — The series consists of six files containing information on each of Theatre Calgary’s productions in the series.

M-2355-681 “Hosanna” – prompt script; production information; photos; reviews. — 1977-1978

Series 17


Midnight Series. — 1979-1982. — The Midnight Series replaced Second Stage as a forum for the production of “alternate theatre” in 1979. As the name suggests, the series was produced at midnight on weekends and was intended to attract into the theatre the young nightclub crowd likely to be downtown late in the evening. — Unfortunately, the Midnight Series is very poorly documented and although these files contain scripts of 11 of the 18 plays produced during the three seasons the series was in existence, only four of these are prompt scripts.

M-2355-687 “Sexual Perversity in Chicago” – script. — 1979-1980

Programs. — 1968-1986. — Programs are a source of a great deal of information about a theatre company.

THEATRE CALGARY EXTENSION PROGRAMS


Series 21


Caravan / Stage-Coach, Drama Centre, Kaleidoscope, Performing Arts on Tour, Youtheatre. — 1969-1984. — In even its first year in existence, Theatre Calgary had a children’s theatre program and offered workshops in improvisation and basic acting techniques – it is from these beginnings that the Extension department grew. — The series consists of the administrative records of the department from 1969 to1984. There is very little information, however, on the production of individual plays by Caravan / Stage-Coach or on the activities of the Drama Centre, and only a few files exist concerning Kaleidoscope, Performing Arts on Tour and Youtheatre. The series has six sub-series: 1969-1973; 1973-1974; 1974-1975; 1975-1979; 1980-1982; 1982-1984.

THEATRE CALGARY PUBLIC RELATIONS


Series 24


Public Relations Subject Files. — 1968-1986. — The activities of the Public Relations Department are well documented in this series. The records are alphabetically arranged by season to the early 1980s. In addition to its responsibilities of publicizing the plays both for the Main Stage and Stage-Coach seasons, organizing season ticket campaigns, writing programs and raising funds through the annual television auction, the department also acted as liaison with its patrons. Theatre Calgary received large numbers of letters from the public – both pleased and “irate” – and these often provide very interesting a and entertaining reading.
