|Abstract: ||Urbanisation is a phenomenon, which characterises settlements with large populations manifesting a rather dichotomous expression of progress and problems as found both in the socio-economic, cultural and physical structures found in the Urban environment which is often described as the “City Culture’.
When rapid urbanisation becomes the trend of the time, facilities are always needed to cater for the intellectual, psychological and recreational needs of the urban man. There is also the need for facilities that help regulate and refine socio-cultural development within the social context of urban development.
Urbanisation also brings along with it a situation of rapid cultural dynamism, which, auguring well for development also necessitates, the preservation of certain social art forms not only for historical purposes but also for entertainment and educational purposes.
The Performing Arts, from the Greek Amphitheatre to the local Concert Parties or Popular Theatres of the present day social context of Ghana, have always played a significant role in the development of man both socially and politically, mostly due to the audience-actor relationship serving as a means of imparting knowledge or information.
The growth of a country does not only depend on the ingenuity of the Economist alone but also on the mental and psychological development of the nation .It cannot therefore be over emphasized, given the present day social context in Ghana that there is the need for the provision of facilities that should make it possible for the redirecting and rejuvenation of the nation.|
