ln Local PLAYHOUSES
THE DETROIT. .
‘The Dairymaids,’’ one ot the pret
tiest musical comedies local theater
goers have seen for some time, was
presented iu the Detroit opera, house
Thursday evening, opening a half
week's engagement, it is one of the
good things found by Charles Froh
man In London, but the piece has been
made over with American songs and
American stung so to have lost to a
certain extent its Original identity.
The ‘‘Dairymaids' were received with
genuine favor by the big audience
that attended the theater Thursday
evening, and without exception every
song rendered had to be repealed to
satisfy the demands of those present.
Os course, the- piece has a plot—
;uat enough to find an excuse on
which to hang a dozen or more pretty
songs. It has to do with a woman
who has a model dairy farm, two
nieces and two nephews. The nieces
are playing at being dairymaids, and
the nephews aro naval officers Just
back from a long cruise. The nieces
and nephews are sweethearts. Aunty
finds the nieces and nephews together
at the dairy and Is not at all pleased.
She promptly sends her niece i hack
to Miss Pyechase’s academy, but the
nephews disguise themselves as girls
One scene shows the farm with
patent churn, milking stools and all
the other paraphernalia of a well reg
ulated dairy farm. The second scene
shows the gymnasium In the academy
where the girls have been sent, with
a bevy of pretty maids In “gym'’ cos
tumes, swinging clubs, vaulting over
bars, swinging on rings and the like.
This scene Is quite unusual and pretty.
Harry Bulger, as Joe Mivens, a
sailor, headed tne list of the funmak
ers, and to him was given the most
genuine applause of the evening. In
his song. “I’m the man who wrote
‘The Merry Widow’ waltz,’’ and also
as a member of the trio and quartet
he kept the audience in u continuous
&ood humor. Juiiß Sanderson, as
Peggy, a dairymaid, shared honors
with Bulger. She has a pretty face,
and a sweet, thong!} not «trnn» ( voice.
Edgar At/ hison-Ely as Sam Brudenoll
and Fletcher Norton as Lieut, Brud
cnell, with Eugene O'Rourke as Dr.
O’Bryne, provide no end of mirth, anl
their antics keep the audience con
stantly In an uproar.
I»cal Interest centered In Fletche- 1
Norton who may properly be claimed
as a Detroit boy. Mr. Norton received
the greater part of his musical edu
cation abroad and has a «-rlendhl
voice. In “The- Dairymaids." he hai
found an opportunity whjch uudoubt
rdlv will lead to better things, and
he makes tho most of bis extravagant
part in the role of Lieut. Brudenell.
In the first scene be appears as the
officer In full uniform, bur In the sec
ond act is seen In the ludicrous mas
querade costume' chosen for the pur
pose of entering the girls' academy.
He Is extremely funny in this role and
makes the most of a' difficult char

There will be performances Friday
and Saturday nights with a Saturday
Big Seat Sale *or “The Great Divide."
All indications point to a remark
ably successful engagement of "The
Great Divide" in the Detroit opera
house next week. Already there has
been a great demand at the box office
for this now famous William Vaughn
Moody play, which is not to be won
dered at tn view of Its notable run of
nearly two seasons in New York city
and widely discussed national charac
ter of Its plot. The drama Itself Js
said to"be everywhere attracting ca
pacity audiences even with the tw r o
other road touring companies, but De
troit playgoers are to enjoy the orig
inal production and cast exactly as it
has been since the beginning of Its
signal triumph, and the two
such brilliant stars as Margaret Ang
lin and Henry Miller are both to be
seen in tho same performance, sup
ported by an exceptional makfs
this event one of the really red letter
attractions of the season.
Among thS latest "thrillers’’ is thc“
triple parachute leap, In which one
aeronaut us/s three different para
chutes before reaching earth. He
leaves the balloon In his downward
flight with a red parachute, but after
falling a short distance liberates it
and makes a second plunge through
space with a white parachute. This
feat is repeated again after another
drop, and he Anally lands with a blue
parachute. Another •‘thriller" Is a
double parachute leap from the saim 1
ballo'n, in which n man and woman
race to earth in parachutes which fall
GOO or 600 feet before opening out.
The party of the first part Is the
beneficiary of most of tuat charity that
begins at home.
