DRAMATIC SKETCHES. NO. 7.
"Super.. ..Magic sound. It brings It alljiack, all
the delight and wonder of trie play-house In those
early times when even the supe got a share of the
glory. The snpe has been chaffed from time lmme.
mortal, but always playfully, and It would be hard to
find a retired theatre-goer who does not read or hear
the old name without a comical, mournful Interest.
The supe Is the man who never speaks from the
stage, except In company with other men. Speak
ing by the card, there Is no snuh thing as a supe.
'Trained corps of supernumeraries" there are, but a
Single super Is like an Individual atom his only
value Is in conjunction with other atoms. Behind
the scenes tbeso atoms are technically termed
shouters." They make the mobs, the patriots who
raise or knock the pins from under a dynasty by com
bined yet simple expression. And they know about
as much as mobs do generally We have hearl Mr.
Murdoch tell of a choice lot of patriots which he
was leading In some piece or other, who had with
Infinite care been drilled to make certain exclama
tions In a Ret order, liut brains to adapt themselves
to a situation they had not. Murdoch made an in
advertent transposition of his own lines, and the
following short but emphatic dialogue was there
suit; Hero Would ye be slaves ?
ShouUrsWe would! we would!
Hero (finding it too late to cry back, and trusting to
luck) Would you be free men?
Shouters We'd die first!
Such is the supe.
Who Is there who has not found an array la a
second-class theatre more entertaining than the fun
niest farce ? The wonoer has always been how It
wai possible to turn out such a sttof scarecrows,
and how with such an Incubus ever upon it the illu
sion could be at all sustained. If audiences were
themselves better Informed, the spectacle presented
by the supers would be even more ludicrous to
them tlisu it Is. The dre&Bes are worn with very
little alH'imion in numbers of pieces differing
widi ly in time and place. Tho Scotch dress Is so
distinctive that the average sight seer grasps Ps
peculiarities with little trouble, and so of a few
others; t ut veiy often the auditor knows very little
more of v hat la the proper thing for the mailer iu
hand than the super himself.
Where does the supe come from ? What is the
inducement for him to make a zany of himself?
Hard quebtions. Sometimes, certainly, he is ambi
tious to become an actor, and knows no other way
than to begin in the very humblest capacity. And
while here it may be said that some distinguished
players have In fact risen from this tnsiimlflciut
place into enviable positions. John R. Scott always
boasted that he did. William Goodall, who made
such a sensation at Barnum's Museum years ago in
the Drunkard, was a super only a few months before
ne made Ms great hit Not only such cases, how
ever, Di. lUt Be who even graduate into the ranks of
the "utility,'- are extravagantly exceptional. The
matter is a riddle from this point of view. In the
cases of ninety-nine out of a hundred there is not
only no ambition, but there is, further, an i. du
rance of everything relating in any possible way to
the drama, and an utter indifference to acquiring any
knowledge on the subject.
Regarding the inducement we are still more in the
dark. What inducement, put concretely and on a
scale generally adopted by the theatres of the United
States, is twenty-five cents a night, or a dollar and a
half a week ! For this munificent sum the supe sub
mits to an v mount of discomfort and bullying tint
would be dear at lorty-nlue dollars a month. He
cannot be s;tld to be driven into a theatre as into a
gold mine. Even his dollar and a half ho docs not
pocket free of duty, as we shall presently explain.
Not ambitious (of too low an order, as a rule, to
know what nuiDltlon Is) and decidedly not enriched
by his diluted share of professional life, how and
why the supe exists must remain one of the un
solved problems. Actors have tried to answer it
from the beginning, but always without success.
A somewhat Important person in a dramatic com
pany is an individual with tho semi official title of
"Captain of the Supers." He Is usually an actor In
a small way, but his captaincy is not determined by
his abilities in this regard, but by his powers of com
mand, lie has the roughest sort of material to deal
With, and it is necessary he should be a person with
energy and firmness. It Is tils business to drill the
supes in their evening's work, to get the re
quired dresses from the wardrobe and to see that
they are safely returned, and to look after Lis un
couth forces while on tin stage and off It. In fur
therance of this latter duty he has In the first place
to see that they do what they should (as nearly as it
is in their nature to), and in the second, that they
do not do what they would If they were not closely
looked after. In the better theatres there Is a room
especially devoted to the supes, to which a standing
order remands them whenever they are not needed
on the stage. In default of such provision the stage,
during the performance of a heavy piece, is apt to
be in a state of tumult and confusion. The
supes, of course, do not attend rehearsals. Their
revenues from the theatre do not permit
them to rely upon ucli Incomes exclusively
for support, and they have, or are sapp sed
to have, other business In the daytime. The cap
tain rehcatses for them. The stage manager
or prompter tells him, as the piece
proceeds, how many men he wants
on scenes specified, and what they are to do. These
directions be details to his force at night, rehearsing
them on the stage between acts in tho important
movements. Tae captain doesn't get much cre
dit from the public for his work, and as he
must make it up somehow, he takes it out of the
supe. That forlorn creature, by his articles of en
gagement, agrees to pay the captain for his services
a certain amount a week, sometimes a night's
wages, sometimes more or less. - The management
sanctions this, as It Is lound to be about
the best way of running the department. The
captain is in addition paid the salary of "responsl
ble utility" about (IB a week and it often happens
during a tragedy season, when an extra force of
supernnmerariis is required, that he makes as
much money as the principal actors.
Sometimes the humble supe's position has bjon
assumed by youngsters on a lark, or desirous of
Investigating the hidden recesses of the theatre. A
few yeai s ago this was done on East in a rather ex
traordinary manner. No less dUtiuRulshed per33ns
than a party of Harvard students made application to
the Boston Thea're, and were employed by the cap
tain with ravening eagerness. Never since ths keel of
the "Boston" was laid hud bucii Hue figures of men
offered themselves for these elevated posts. Cam
bridge iswithlneasj distance of the city, and the j e
was kept u? until some of the college authorities,
happening to visit the tneatre, discovered oar young
adventurers despite their elaborate disguises, aud
suppressed their iioUodb of practical humor in a sum
mary manner. The captain did not know until the
finale occurred that he had been entertaining angels
Lowly hung as the super is iu the dramatic gallery,
there are recognized grades of excellence even iu
his poor sphere. At the bottom of the ladder we
find the sure engaged In very simple duties. To
roll under a green baize carpet, simulating the
raging of the angry malu, Is a favorite commence
ment of his apprenticeship. His graduation thence
Is laborious and slow. Half-way up, perhaps, stands
the spear business. When a man can carry a spear
there is a tolerable confidence reposwi In Him.
Finally, u he has talent, he Is permitted to cinya
banner. This Is the crown of a supe's career. To
keep the S. I. Q. R side turned to the audleuce, to
raise and depress it at the right time aud to hold it
gracefully when at reBt, there lu nothing beyund
Ibla; what should there bet
But the real glory of the supe seems to have de
parted. The simple nstes of this generation are
too much for blm. What chance has the supe of
other days in Eirth, and Cate, and School, aud all
tdat sl kly crew? Our gave him, lu its military
procession, a splendid opportunity, but o.ie swallow
do s not make a summer. The supe thinks tJia pre
sent gem-ratiou Is weak-kneed and brokeu-ba'-ked
in its dramntlo tactes. Booth is tha only man who
acts the old-fashioned tiagedy now-a-duys, aud he
Can't keep the whole Bupernume rary prof ebsion la en
garment. The younger tragedians, Adamg.Barrett,
and the like, play only their ridiculous sentimental
pieces, wherein the genuine supe has positively no
chance to disport. The Irish drama has gone to the
dogs, too. Barney Is In Ireland, and nobody knows
when he will comeback. Burlesque and sensation
give the girls a fine chance, but sink the supe
lower than ever. Richard, ill or Macbeth is his idea
of a dramatlo entertainment. Put him Into dirty
white tights that show his bow legs In all their
native elegance, drape ronnd him a toga that makes
film look like a suicidal butcher, and bind with the
consul's or senator s wreath his lanky soap locks,
and the Supo, as he always was and will be, stands
confessed. But put him lu store clothes and you
ruin him. Tragedy Is his forte; "pantaloon" pieces
are his undoing.
