EL MENTIDERO DE COMEDIANTES From California State University (formerly College), Los Angeles, comes this news release which we give here in its entirety: Spanish Repertory Theatre to be based at CaI State L. A. A grant to estabHsh a Spanish Repertory Theatre and Workshop has been provided to California State University, Los Angeles , by the Del Amo Foundation of Los Angeles and Madrid. The theatre-workshop, 'Teatro Espa ñol Del Amo," will produce three classic Spanish dramas, and provide four courses on Spanish drama during the Summer of 1973. Actors from the Royal School of Dramatic Arts in Madrid will perform principal roles in the productions while scholars on Spanish drama will teach the four classes. The project is to be administered by Dr. A. F. Michael Atlee, associate professor of Spanish Hterature at CaI State L.A. Under terms of the grant, Dr. Atlee will supervise estabhshment of the workshop which is to offer full-dress productions of "El burlador de Sevilla," the first Don Juan play, written in 1614; "El sí de las niñas," last play from the neo-classic period; and "Una noche del teatro medieval-renacentista," a series of five one-act dramas tracing the development of the drama in Spain from the Latin tropus to the Italianate cornmedia deH' arte of Cervantes. Classes to be offered on the Spanish theatre will include Medieval-Renaissance Drama, Golden Age Drama, 18th and 19th Century Drama, and Contemporary Drama. Dr. Atlee anticipates that the classes will be taught by Bruce Wardropper, who holds the Wannamaker Chair at Duke University, and F. García Pavón, director of the Real Escuela de Arte Dramático in Madrid. 48 Both are internationally-known specialists in Spanish drama. All classes will be open to the pubHc through CaI State L.A. Summer Session. Students and non-students will be permitted to become involved in the productions as actors or assistants participating in the mounting of the plays. Complementing the theatre and the classes will be a series of lectures to be conducted by visiting Hispanists. "We intend to bring the Spanishspeaking residents of the Southwest face-to-face with some of the peoples and artistic traditions that form their proud cultural heritages," said Dr. Atlee. "Our plan is to make the Spanish Repertory Theatre an annual Summer cultural event, focusing each successive year on the dramatic traditions of Mexico and other Latin American countries ." AU plays and classes will be offered at CaI State L.A. between June 18 and July 27. The campus is located at the interchange of the San Bernardino and Long Beach freeways, adjoining the cities of Alhambra and Monterey Park. At the annual meeting (November 2) of the SAMLA (South Atlantic Modern Language Association) in Tallahassee, Florida, our friend and fellow-Comediante , Raymond R. MacCurdy, gave the principal address, entitled "The 'Problem ' of Spanish Golden Age Tragedy: a Review and Reconsideration." Congratulations , Tim! We should like to bring to the attention of Comediantes the article...
