At The Opera House.
The Furguson Stock Company will
give a one week's performance at the
opera house beginning April 23. This
company comes very highly recom
Imended and there is a. lot of enjoy
ment in store for the theatre going
peeople. The Greenville Herald has
the following to say of the perform
ances which company in that city:
That the Ferguson Stock company
is the strongest popular priced attrac
tion ever seen in Greenville was
proven beyond all doubt last night by
the masterly manner in which they
presented the four act comedy drama
"Down On The Farm." And that the
theatre going public appreciates this
fact, is evident from the large audi
ence they have had at each perform
The company opened Christmas
eve for a nine nights' engagement.
and the size of the audience has in
creased at every performance.
Mr. Ferguson could have used as
a name "The All Star Company" with
impunity, for really it would be hard
to say just what player in the cast
is the star, for they are all excellent.
Between each act there are special
ties by the different members of the
company. not the kind which make
you yawn and move about uncom
fortably in your seat. but the kind you
look forward to and enjoy.
