H : THE MORMONS AND THE THEATER :
JOHN" S. LINDSAY.
II Tho Interest aroused in Salt Lake
i City, find Indeed throughout the Terrl
I tory, by the building1 of the Salt Lake
Theater, was marked by the organiza
tion of a number of amateur dramatic
companies, not only In Salt Lake, but In
many of the settlements.
The statement may seem almost in
credible, but we will venture tho asser
tion that one year after the ononlng o
the Salt Lake Theater there was scarce
ly a town or good-sized settlement In
Utah that did not hnvo Its Home
Dramatic company, and If It could not
afford a hall especially fou the drama,
the mcctlng-housc was metamorphosed
Into a theater whom occasion required It.
Ere tho Theater was completed so far
as to bo dedicated and used another
amateur company had sprung Into ex
istence. It was called tho Young
Friends' Dramatic association. It was
with this company the writer allied
himself and made his ilrat appearance I
on the stage.

One of the leading mercantile firms of
those days was Staines & Needham.
Their store stood near where the Herald
, ofn.ee now stands. In the rear of their
etore they had- a two-story adobe
building, the lower story of which they
used as a warehouse. The upper ptory
was rented by the new amateur club
and converted Into a cozy little theater.
In Mr. Ursonback tho association had
a very valuable assistant, he having
had some experience on the stage In his
own country, Switzerland. He took
especial pleasure in directing rehearoals
and managing the stage, not. however
essaying to act himself, as he had not
mastered English sufficiently for that.
"Luke the Laborer" and old English
melodrama In- thr&e acts, and the farce
of "Lend Me Five Shillings," was the
opening bill. "Luke the Laborer" must
have been a great favorite In those
days, as it had been played both in the
Social hall and In Bowling's theater.
Ursenback very soon discovered that
he had the hardest part of all to play
as stage manager, as we were all per
fect novices. Not one of the company
had ever played a part. Wc had no
ideas of stage technique, andi must have
been a very awkward squad. One mem
ber In particular would" persist In keep
ing his back toward the audience,
1 cither afraid or ashamed to show his
face, and poor Ursonback would get
excited and his Swiss dialect would get
so thick we could! scarcely understand
"My de'are sore, dat vcel nevare do.
Tou moost not parezeest In keeping
you-alr back to ze au-dee-once; dey veel
vlsh to see you-alr face' To another
he would blurt out: "No, no! no! Dat
is not ze vay you moos do dat. It
, moos be zls vay." Then we would get
a lesson in dramatic art which given
under undue excitement and In very
broken English would be amusing
enough to put us all In a merry mood,
but we dared not lauglv outright for
fear of offending our tutor; eo we got
what Instruction we could out of his
suggestions, which were generally good,
although his manner of conveying them
was often ludicrous. '
The First Performance.
At length the night of performance
arrived. The little playhouse was tilled
with our friends. There was nothing
charged for admission on this opening
night, the house being filled by Invita
tion. We were all anxious and a little
fearful of what the verdict might be, eo
we were glad to nave a friendly audi
ence. There was such an absolute tSearth of
amusements about thl3 time, that al
most any effort, however crude, was
hailed with pi6asure by those who wit
nessed'lt. Our stage manager had taken
great pains with us and drilled and re
hearsed us until he felt confident we
could pass muster,-and the Initial ppr
formancc was received very favorably.
by our frlcnd3, and pronounced a ster
Our stage manager, however, was not
so Indulgent. He discovered a number
of weak points, which he decided to trv
and remedy by the next performance".
The nrlnclnnl ono wrm In tho. ian,i(n.
character of Luke, which Is a. very
j Etrong melodramatic, almost tragic role.
Sclplo A. Kenner. the editor of the
f Utah Pioneer of today, was the young-
1 est male member of the company,
being only In his middle teens,
f Neither hl: physique nor his voice wan
1 b-ufilciently mature for so strong a char-
ncier, and although he did remarkably
well with It, considering the 'more boy
that he was, Mr. Ursenbeck decided to
try another member of the company In
that character for the next perform
ance, so he cast It to Joe Snell, who,
notwithstanding the advantage he
. possessed in voice and physique,
suffered so keenly from stage fright
and a hemorrnge of the noss that he
could no.t be persuaded, to undertake it
j 1 a second time, and he bade farewell,
1 i a long farewell to all his greatness'
l and never again could he be induced to
1 try the stage.

mmms plays this company, or a part of It, wne

i had distinguished himself.
"Jlmmle" Thompson, ns he was fa
mwm mlllarly called by his associates, had
mmm conceived the Idea of organizing n dra-
1 inatlc club and calling It "The The-
mWW plans." He believed he had the ncces-,
UWW sary knowledge of the drama and the
mmm managerial ability to make a success
of it. And time proved that he iva

mW H"d his company formed. The next

Halls, aside from the ward mctliir
houses, were few and far between In
I those days, and It was difficult to find
H! any Pice that Mould answer; but at
Ij Ia8t "Jlmmle" discovered what he con-
LIHI l?re? ammodeI P'P-'n which to estab-
Jl9h his Thespian company. The build

mmm( Uss may we noL return, Horatio "
j The dimensions of the building were
about 20x15' feet on the outside, with a
lean-to at the back, which was con
verted Into dressing rooms. The build
ing was owned by Mr. and Mrs. Taylor,
the parents of the late President John
Taylor, and was fitted up as a store,
with counters and shelving all complete
and ready for a tenanL
Rented a Store.
"Jlmmle" Thompson having decided
that the place would answer his pur
pose, waited upon tho Taylors and In
quired about the rental. The place had
been idle a long tlmo and they put an
easy price on It, so "Jlmmle" Informed
them that he would take It. The aged
couple were very curious to know
whether he was going to ppen a grocery
store or a general merchandise busi
ness. Afraid to let them know that 'he
was going to convert their neat little
store Into a theater leat they might re
fuse to rent it for that purpose, the
! astute "Jlmmle" very adroitly Informed
them that he was going to open a
"night school" for Instruction In
Enjfjjsh literature and the classics. As
I the worthy old couple thought that a
very commendable cnterprize they
reauiiy assentcu to u, ano Jimmie
immediately paid a month's rent In ad
vance and secured the key. That same
evening he called tho members of the
'Thespian nsroclntlon together In their
future home for council an to the best
and quickest way of effecting the de
sired transformation from a mercantile
storeroom into a temple of Thcspls.
The young Thespians were all "eager
for the fray," and It did not require
much time to reach a decision. By that
night week the transformation was
complete. The counter had been care
fully removed Into John Bollwlnkell's
hay loft across the street, the shelving
taken carefully down and converted
Into sjats for prospective audiences, a
neat stage was put In and the painters,
of whom there were several in the com
pany, had been busy and scenery for
the opening play was already In place.
When everything was In readiness
"Jlmmle" Invited the old people to come
over and ee the schoolhouse, as they
had been curious to know what so much
sawing and hammering meant. When
they beheld the change that had been
wrought, and that their sober business
house had been converted Into a play
house they were horrified, and ex
pressed great displeasure with Mr.
Thompson for taking such great liber
ties. They declared tho store fixtures.
were ruined, and talked of a damage
suit, but "Jimmie" finally conciliated
them by assuring them that everything
would be put back in Its proper place
when ho was through with It as a
theater; not only so, but he'would have
:ill the shelving and counters newly
He had a convincing way with him,
did "Jlmmle," and the aged Mr. and
Mtf. Taylor were reassured, especially
as he very graciously Invited them to
attend the first performance.
"r thought, Mr. Thompson," said the
old lady a little severely, "you told us
you were going to use this building for
a night school to teach English litera
ture and the classics, and Instead of
that you convert It Into a theater."
"Well, now, Sister Taylor," said
"Jlmmle" in his most winning way, "It
Is a school, and those will be our
studies, but we study them through the
The aged property owners were at
length reconciled and Thompson was
happy, for he really had expected
trouble over It.
Everything now was ready to begin
rehearsals. The drop curtain and
scenery were In place, the dressing
rooms, two very small ones, were neatly
fitted up, and the name of the company
was artistically painted on the glass
doors in front by the best artist It
read. "The Thespian Association."
"Jlmmle" had a touch of the classical
In his Scotch nature, and that was
what led him to select the name. He
was proud of the Thespian association,
and so were we all, but notwith
standing his pride at mustering a nu
merous and talented lot of amateurs,
under this classical and) euphonious ap
pellation, some sacrilegious and envious
craftsman of "JImmle's." some subtle
knave of a printer, some scurvy fellow
who wanted to have a laugh at
"JImmle's" expense, In speaking of the
Thespian association dubbed It In de
rision "Crommle's show."
"Crommle's Show" Stuck.
The name caught at once and stuck
to us, and the name of Thespians was
overwhelmed and burled In the more
suggestive, though less dignified appel
lation, "Crommle's show." Although
It rather hurt our pride at first to have
our name so effectually changed by the
mere sally of a wag, we gradually got
reconciled to . It, and especially "Jlm

In addlt on to the play, the farce,
My Wlfes Mirror," was played on
our opening night. The example of the
loung Friends, was followed.
The house, which seated about eighty
persons, was filled . by Invitations to
the relatives and friends of tho com
pany, so that we were sure of a warm
reception and a responsive audience
The performance went off In flrst-clasa
stylo foi amateurs (very new ones, at
that), only one or two little accidents
occurred to mar Its perfection, and
these rather added to the enjoyment
of tho audience than detracted from It.
Holler Caused Trouble.
The first untoward occurrence was In
the opening act of tho play The
characters were formed In four cou
ples to dance a quadrille. The stage
room being very limited, the couple
standing next to the curtain, with
their backs to the audience contrived
to get so dangerously near the curtain
roller that soon as It began to ascend
and the lady's eklrt caught In tho roller
and came very near divesting her of
all her apparel. Sho screamed, the au
dience yelled, and Harry Muston, who
was handling the curtain, nearly faint
ed when he saw how he had exposed
her to public vlow. Ho hastily rolled
the curtain down, the lady readjusted
her skirts and a fresh start was made.
That ludy has ever since had a whole
some dread of curtain-rollers.
Farther on In the play we had an
other accident. It wua at the end of
an act. The villain was lying dead on
the stage. The property man, Mustoh,
had prepared some excellent red fire.
He was determined to have a stunning
tableau at the end of that act, where
llhc villain gets killed. He had his
red fire on an ordinary tin plate and
was at his post ready to drop the cur
tain as soon ns the vllllnn (who was
Impersonated by the writer) expired.
As soon ao the villain fell Muston
touched off tho fire, It spat and sput
tered all over his hands, nnd he
dropped the plates, and It rolled with
Its lurid contents close to the dead
villain's head. He could feel the hot
sparks sputtering all about him, he
could smell the feathers In his bandit
hat singeing; ho oven fancied that his
ringlet wig was burning, and after be
ing heroically dead for a number of
seconds that ceemed an age, and hear
