The first real treat to the Newberry.
t theatre goers was the a ppearance at
the opera house last t"riday and Sat or
Ii dany nights of the eel :brted I)un l'aek
aIdrl Opera ('om pany a'1d orehestra.
Friday night the company appeared
t in the niewest merry conmie opera, "Said
l Pasha," and delighld the audience.
whiel' wits coimlpost-d of some of our
e hest citizens and moste ompetent erities
e of operatic music.
Saturday after"noon "Olivette" was
U pr"esented as the mitinee bill, and it
Wits witnessed by one of the largest, a nd
1 most refined audienets of ladies and
e children ever secun in t1h opera house
s and hey were so well pleased that they
t. returined at, nighit, to see t he pret.t y lit
tie opera, '"Mascot.''
Seldom is ia Newherry auditne.. as
t well pleased as at. this perforlanlce.
At all three perfortuances the an
t dience was simply catrrie( away
with the mnagniicent production of
t each hill. The whole company was
composed of art.ists, buit a notice would
b incomplete wit,hout special mention
of \lmnte Walker, who kept, his audi
t ce in a roar of lau;glter ovel' his
originatl fun that lie so contintiou sly
t served out to them, especially in Mas
cot as "Prince i'orenzo,' and Gilbo-t,
Clayton as HoCco. Miss Chariot ta (il
man, who had the role of "Hettina, the
Mascot," was decidedly the favorite
with the audience, and her every 11num
bet' was repeatedly encored. Not oiy
in voice was she perfct, but her act,ing
of the part was most pleasing, and her
good looks and pleasing personalty at
once captivated the entire crowd. Rliss
Kirkwood, as Fianetta," had only a
small patt, but it was delightfully aet
c ed and was well sung. Charles Holmes'
sweet tenor and easy mtanners had wide
Y scope in the role of -"P'ippo," which
part he played perfectly.
Tbce chorus was large, of good voice,
. capable and well handled in the bright
e clean and handsome costumncs that were
e a pleasing feature of tile Centrtainment,
s presenting a pretty picture.
It is a first-class company of compe
tent artists and will please wherever
t,hey go. Mtr. Paickardi prIomised to
.play a return date here inl the spr'ing,
andl whlen hIe does will be received by
C lar'ge audiences.
