High School Glee Club To Stage
Victor Herbert Operetta Friday Rehearsals for the production of Victor Herbert’s popular operetta, •The Red Mill”, which will he staged in the high school audi torium on Friday evening at 8 o’clock by the High school Glee club, have been in progress in the auditorium for several weeks. The New Hanover High school Glee club which has been heard in a number of programs aoout the city has had its seventy odd members working on the music of the well-known production. Miss Mary Henri Wolfe, club director, is in charge of the musical por tion; Miss Mildred Johnson has been working with the dramatics and stage settings; and Patty Jones, talented young pianist of the club, bandies the piano accom paniment. ‘•The Red Mill . a comic opei •tta in two acts, was first pro duced on that most famous of theatrical highways—Broadway, in New York city. Victor Herbert’s eatchy music of the picturesque pi»c-e was first advertised by a huge red mill with moving sails outlined with red lights. Reseal el, disclosed that this moving lighted •*ign" was the first moving sign in lights to appear on Broadway. The scene is laid in a tiny vil lage in Holland called Katwyk-an zee. where the pompuos inkeep er Willem, and his gay daughter, Tina, keep the Red Mill Inn be side the mysterious old Red Mill which plavs so important a part in the story. The Dutch country side fairly blooms with romance and beauty when the inn-keeper employees daintily dressed Dutch maidens to pose for budding artists in order to attract the tour iit trade. Among these tourists are two Americans—"Con” Kidder and "Kid” Conner—who manage to get themselves into all manner of up roarious predicaments. Not sat isfied with their usual antics, the two disguise themselves first as Italians and then as that famous detective and his helper, Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson. The re sults of these escapades proves more exciting ahd funnier than me two "Yanks” probably bar gained for. At any rate, they delve deeply into the mystery surround ing the "Red-Mill'. Providing -a romantic interest are two couples—Fair Gretchen. tlie Burgomaster's daughter, and her aunt Bertha being the lovely ladies. The Governor of Zeeland, a fortune hunter of a sort, comes to Katwyk-an-zee to wed Gretchen, but because of unforseen circum atances, he has a change of heart and falls tor 'the wealthy aunt because, he says, ‘‘I have a mil lion golden reasons.” Captain Doris van Daram, a handsome young man, relieves him of his obligation to Gretchen, and the play ends with everyone in a merry state of mind. Supporting these characters arc the French Countess, a beguiling and beautiful pers-on, and Penny leather, an Englishman en tour. They sre brought together in an unfortunate manner—an auto acci dent—but fate is kind, and the th’-ead of romance winds around anoiher couple.
