I The Salt Lalto theater season for 19.10-21, it can bu said, lias opened. Tho Orphoum and tho Shubcrt arc running, Iho former in vaudeville and tho latter musical comody und inoy will co musical comedy, and thoy will so con tinue for the season. On Sunday, August 28. tho Colonial will open for tho season, when Wilton Lackayc will present ''Tho Battle." This will be tho opening gun of theatri cal war that is to bo waged in this city tho coming season botwocn the C'ort crowd, the Independents and Klaw and Erlangor, who control t ho Salt Lake the ater, in so far as tho bookings are con cerned. It will likewise moan an ad vance in prices at tho Colonial over what they have been horotofore. Mr. Corf., who has tho Independent organi sation, promises the best that is to bo had in tho theatrical world and in view that a number of the producers of plays havo joined forces witli him, the Colo nial will be n greater factor than ever In tho Salt Lako theatrical world. The season at tho Salt Lake theater will open September 5th, Labor 'day, when Kcnriotta Crossman, an old timo Salt Lake .favorite, wall appear in a new piny and from that dato on it is said that tho Salt Lake theater will havo no dark nights during tho winter. Klaw nnd lSrlauger will have on the road thirty-eight of tho biggest productions, most of which havo nover been present ed outside of JSfew York. Boston, Phila delphia and Chicago, It is said that all of Klaw arid Erlanger's big pro ductions will come to Salt Lake, and every ono of their productions will havo a week in Utah. Tho Ogden Orphoum will take care of them two nights of each week- and the Orphoum show on those nights will be sent, to tho Logan oncra house. But the best shows that Klaw and Erlangor have- and this in cludes all the Frohman stars, will be seen in JSion. With the opening of these theaters 'here will then be seven playhouses run ning in Salt Lako City exclusive of the motion picture shows, so that Salt Lake play-goers can havo their pick. It is a question whether this number of thea ters can bo sustained as it is one thea ter for every 13,000 inhabitants. With tho announcement that the Grand, theater is being remodeled and - I changed in many ways and that: it is to bo an up to date playhouse in which a stock company headed by William Ingersoll is to present tho best plays and which will bo run as a slock house it might be well to recall some facts about the old Grand theat'or. In this connection it should be said that sev eral of the stars of the lirst magnitude which now scintillate in the theatrical world made (heir advent on the boards of the old Grand. The Grand theater was opened on Christmas night. lSi)i, when ' 4 Moths." an adaptation from the novel of the same name, was presented. Tho com pany was a splendid one. It was under the direction of Larry Giffen, who is now the advance representative of. Mrs. Fiskc, Tho company was made up of Miss Tano Kennark. Miss Blanche Bates, Miss Madgo CaTr Cook. Miss Jean Coy, T. D. Frawloy, Howard Kyle. C. W. Xing, Harry Corson Clarke and H. D. Biakemorc, tho latter joining the companj' after the first week; This company held tho boards until the spring of 1895. when a break occurred, a row being stirred up by Harry Cor son Clarke. A new company was formed, headed by Wight Huntington. Howard Kyle, Victory Bateman, Lisle Loigh, I Cecil -Kmg8tonc. Hugh Wardo, Florida Kingsloy and others. In the fall of the same year, Septem ber lb, 1895, the Ingersoll company, headed by William Ingersoll, who will head the new stock company at tho Grand, this year, opened in "Boscdalo. Other members of the companj- were Fannio Meiutyr, Walter Edwards and Itebecca Warron, tho two latter now in stock in Toledo; tho older Mr. Edo son, who died in Philadelphia several Tears ago; Mr. and Mrs. Chest'or, Wil liam Tqokor, Hugh Wardo, Miss Pollock, Ka therm 0 Joromo, who married a busi ness man in Salt Lake, and Ilnny Hath away. Mr. Hathaway married the daughter of 3yron Groo of this city and afterwards left tho stage and. en tered the ministry. He has been in charge of an Episcopnl church in tho tast .for several years. A few weeks after the JngerFoll company opened tho Grand Miss Ada Dwyor and Mr. liich man opened at the old ILyccum. Following these ventures the life of stock in Salt Lako City has not been . n bed of roses all tho time. Among those who attempted tho business can be recalled Wallace Mttnroe, who opened tho Wonderland with his com--pHny, the only company, by the way, That ever played a continuous perform ance of "Uncle Tom's Cabin- which the members did hero running the plav eighteen hours in order to caro for the great timing who wanted to sec the Play. This was at' Wonderland.

On September n Mr. Ingersoll will 4. return with a splendid company and re .t. open tho Grand, which will be run as a J. stock theater indefinitely. It is proba f bio that tho nnmo of tho Grand will bo v changed to "The Carrick,'' although it has not boon definitely decided upon. f. For its principal act during the week h that begins this afternoon, tho Orphoum " will have Grigolati 's Aerial Ballot, a j spectacle as beautiful as tho mind can L well conceive.

Grigolati startled Berlin twonty-fryo years ago at tho old Wal lialla which was the first theater on tho continent to introduce a permanent bal let and spectacular dancing features. After many tours of tho continent this sensational novelty became a permanent feature at the Drur3' Lane theater in London, as the climax of tho gorgeous .ballets in the series of pantomimes which included "Sleeping Beauty and tho Beast," "Bluebeard," "Mother Goose." and "Humpty Dumpt-." In 1901 Klaw & Erlanger purchased the producing rights of these plays for this country. It was found that In order to reproduce the flying ballet, the original aerial coryphees would have to be se cured and Mr. Erlangor contracted with Herman Schultz, who controlled tho Grigolati patents, for their appearance here. m The sensation these graceful fly ing girls created in New York is stage history and in every one of the panto mimes to follow in New York they were features. With the opening of tho New York Hippodrome they became a perma nent feature. For their present lour the spectacle will begin with tho beautiful ballet, including a graceiul specialty by Mllo. Florettn, the premier coryphee, and concluding with tho gorgeous dove ballet, in which live pigeons are used for the concluding pictures and figures. "The Code Book," presented by the Hammond & Atwell company, deals, with the alleged attempts of a Ja'pancso army officer to obtain copies of tho signals and information contained in tho Code Book of the United States army. A thrilling drama is worked out and it is presented with great skill and dramatic force. Fred Warron and Al Blanchard, two minstrel and musical comedy stars, will present nn act that is melodious and extremely funny. Jovial Fred "Warrcn is this year introducing an impersonation of a colored soubrctte that is said to be tho best thing he has ever done. Scnores Valentino and Dooloy, who make their initial appearanco in the United States over the Orpheum circuit, present a unique entertainment ii which they perform many difficult fonts on the bicycle with unusual dexlcrit', in terspersed with comedy. They are great favorites in Chili, Brazil, Venezuela and othor South American countries and, it is expected, will duplicato their success in North Amorica, Harry Fontellc and Viola Vallorie present a neat, novel and laughablo con versation act with iongs and dances. Mr. Fculcllo is well known in musical comedy six a comedian and was last seen in vaudeville as the comedian of the team of "Fculcllo and Carr." Miss Vallorie (a very pretty girl) is lato of Itichard Carlo "Spring Chicken," Rogers Bros., etc., and was last seen in vaudeville as the "Athletic Girl" in "A Night on a House Boat." Ed Fennel and Miss Lena Tyson have a miniature musical comedy entitled "The Soph and tho Freshy' in which ter, Clucago, could not bo postponed. Abroad thoy are known as "the living rubber balls." Ncw motion pictures' and the regula tion high-class orchestral programme complete the bill. That Snlt Lakers appreciate what few things the management of a theater is ablo to do looking to.their comfort these hot summer nights, is evinced most om iphalieally by the manner in which local t'heatcr-goers are patronizing tho bright I and clever musical shows which for the past six weeks have been produced at the Shubcrt theater by the Allen Curtis Musical Comedy company. It was decided when the Curtis Musi cal Comedy company opened its engage ment at the Shubert;, that an hour and a half was long enough to give an audi ence all that was .bright, all that was clever, plenty of mirth, plenty of music and lots of clever dancing, pretty girls and striking scenes in musicnl comedy, and for that roason the Curtis shows were limited to. an hour and a half, wit i two performances every pveniii" an i matinee performances Sunday, Wodno ' (I'.v J!d Saturday afternoons. The ide struck a responsive chord with Sal ! Lako play goors almost instantly, and i i tho six weeks of its ongngemcnt at r.li bliulKTt tho Curtis company 1ms pluyo to remarkably heavy business. Hv'cr i known dovico has been omployed ii keeping the theater cool, with the rc suit that the average temperature main tamed thoro iw lower than in any othu theater about tho town, while tho hou and a half arrangement for all perform anccs enables one lo leave the thcato belorc it has become uncomL'ortabl' warm. rj.;g co,p.lny opCm,fl tj10 scv cw. week oi -.m stay at the Shuber baturday afternoon m the newest am host laughing show Mr. Curtis has bcei ablo to sccuro, entitled "In Gni Paroc." It is ono of that class of musi cal productions so popular on caston root gardons during the summer months find smacks a little of tho French musi halls. Pho comodv is bright, tho music fresh and good. Tho fun making goe: on at a iunous rate and the chorus J'oa tures and othor specialties are inter spersod throughout the action of an in torcstnig story. It is a merry iingU of the breeziest sort, and in it the rncin bers of tho Curtis company will bo seen in roles entirely new. To clover Mr Henry Auor.baoh. who, the past week, has scored a great personal success in ;Vm,chac,t'eria.,0I, of Ki(1 Copper in "The Girl with a Million," at the Shubert, falls the part of a Hebrew tourist who is visiting Paris with his daughter who is anxious to enter soci ety. Air Auorbaeh has been so success iul with his German characterizations that his work will bo watched with un usual interest this week in tho role of a Hebrew. His interpretation of Kid Pepper was undoubtedly one of the best things of its kind theator-goers have seen in a good while, and as his new role this wcwk offers exceptional oppor tunities for tho dovolopmont of a -new and unusual line of fun making, much is expected of him. In changing f,om 10 rionnirc "Mary" ot "The Girl With a Million" In ('.hp rrdrt nf i ,1 1. . ., stunningly gowned, and who is anxious for somo one to back hor in a theatrical enterprise will be rather a far cry for Maybolle Baker, the prima donna of the Curtis company, but there can bo littb' question but- that she will attempt it successfully. Few girls of more talent -'.ny,c graced the musical comedy stage in bait Lake than Miss Baker. Her rich soprano voice will be heard in several songs, and among others "-Yrcadia" and ''By the Light of the Silvery Moon the latter will introduced a novel efect. and will probably provo one ot the lute of "Tn Gay Pare'c." The big special feature of (he new show is expected to ho tho travesty on the Sousa band, in which Mr. Auor baeh will be seen in the role of Sousa. Another of Mr. Auerbach's songs will bo "Ifosenbaum. " Miss Sotithcrland, tho vivacious soub rctto of the company will play tho daughter ol the Hebrew tourist, and her efforts to break into Parisian so cioty, and her father's efforts to ac commodato ' her wishes, furnish the motif for much of. tho fun and melody of "In Gn.y Parce." Mr. Curtis, in following out his an nouncements with reference to making his company at tho Shubert one of the largest and strongest in the west, an nounces that beginning with today's performance of "In Gay Parce" the two Pragcr. sisters, Maymc and Eslelle, will .loin tho company. Tho two girls arc clever dancers and singers, "and '. come to tho Curtis company direct from a successful engagement of three months in Denver. As the summer season draws to a close : and preparations go forward for the opening of tho regular theatrical year, : Mr. Curtis is completing plans for pre- : sonting at tho Shubert some of tho 1 biggest, musical successes that havo ! graced the eastern stage in the last two seasons. The principals and chorus I of tho company will be added to as fast 1 as capable artists can bo secured, and i in the meantime every effort will be 7 mado to make every show at the Shu- l Miss Crosman. by tho way, was a mem ber of tho old stock company at the Grand theatre In Salt LaJco Cltv.

IUIss Crosman, before exposing the methods of tlws pseudo and fake schools, snys: '1113311111011 as I myself began on the stage nnd not in a dramatic school. J admit 1 am prejudiced in favor of real stage work for a liuglnner. I beliovo in going up in balloons to learn ballooning, t may break your neck, but ihcn there s something actual, and decisive even. In a broken neck. With equal frank ness, however. I will admit that some or the best stars on tho American stage today came out of the good dramatic schoola in New York, Chicago and Dos- bert better, bigger and moro satisfac tory than the last. Mr. Curtis ackuowlcdgedly now has one of the best looking and most grace ful choruses, and the handsome show girls have become ono of tho principal features of tho play. This week they havo more work than ever to do and al together, "In Gay Parce" will bo a good show not to miss. Harry Iicricr of tho Majestic theater and president of the Bevicr Film Manu facturing company of Salt Lake, which has just been organized with a capital of $o0,000, tho object of which is to tako motion picturos showing scencry 111 Utah, returned on Saturday from his first trip on tho rango for the purposo of securing pictures. This trip was up Parley's canyon to Park City and thence bv stage to Brighton. At Brighton ho "secured pic tures of tho beautiful mountain resort of St. Mary's lake, Twin lakes, Mirror lako and a number of views of the magnificent scenery in that locality. Then with a pack horso Mr. TJevior nnd party climbed Mt.

No one will deny that it will bo a welcome change. Almost every one enjoys good musical comedies. The trouble has been in tho past few years that musical comedies wcro do graded into screaming farces with mirthless songs, tuneless music and fan tastic displays of hosiery. Tlrat was all there was to it. It would be too much bono that the new musical productions will come anywhere near equaling the Gilbert and Sullivan brand, but wo most sinccrel3r hope it will bo above tho Zicg feld variety. When wo como to con sider the question in its last analysis, as the congressmen say. wo arc struck 1)3' tho fact that there aro few authors lo write the librettos. It has been sug gested that theatrical producers offer a prize of heroic proporions to induce amateurs to produce material for lirst class musical comedies. Charles Frohman may be tho savior. Says he: "I havo brought more than a scoro of manuscripts back from Eng land with mo and a good portion of these aro librettos for musical come dies. They aro entirely new and I think me-y ciass as nign 11 not uigner Mian tho musical comody successes of tho past eight or ten "years." Which is saying a whole lot. Mr. Frohman. Franz Lobar and Victor Herbert can furnish really tuneful music. Tho only trouble has lain in the lack of accom plished writers. Margaret Illington's Return. Margaret lllington will inaugurate her return to tho stage at Taeoma, Wash., on August 20', with the produc tion of a play derived from the French, entitled "Until Eternity," adapted by Edward Eisner. Mies 'Jllington state's that tho source of her new play comos from the French drama, "Jusq'a 1' Etcmilc." which formed the basis of "Miss Multon," easily recalled as tho biggest emotional play of its time and tho greatest success in the career of Clara Morris. Among the leading mem bers of the company in support, of Miss Jllington are: Miss Nina Morris, Miss Lilla Vano, Miss Inez Shannon, Miss blorcnco Timponi, Miss Zyllah Shannon, Walter Edwards, Edward FJsncr, John D. Barry and Melville Rosenow. The compnny left New York tho middlo of July and will rehearse at Miss Jlling ton 's country pluce on American lake, near Tacoma, tho ontiro organization being hor guests until tho beginning of her tour in that city on August 26. Miss Jlliugtou will bo scon in New York dur !" !10J,'"tei' season at tho Maxine Elliott theater. Maude Adams is in England. Sho sailed away to be gone until the be ginning of hor next theatrical season in October. The purpose of Miss Adams's trip abroad is a soarch for a complete rest after a season of thirty njno weeks in "What Every Woman Knows," the longest tour she has over played. The actress' final destination will bo Dublin, Ireland, where sho has taken a cottage near Trinity college. Miss Adams's trip to Dublin will bo briefly interrupted by a short stay in Loudon, where sho is to meet J. M. Barrio and confer with him upon a de sign for a new Barrio comedy. As to Music Itsolf. I spoko of musical comedies and now of music itself. According, to A. F. Adams, managing director of the Cjuinlan International Musical agency in this country tho coming musical sea son promises lo bo ono of the most ac tive ever known. Mr. Adams returned from Europe recently. While on tho othor side ho closed contracts ror manv representative artists in tho world of music calling for their appearanco 111 England, Ireland, France, Germany and Australia through tho various Quintan agencies in their respectivo countries. Mr. Adams also signed contracts for tho appearanco in this country of soVorab distinguished musicians. "The American public will. I am sure, bo glad to know that we have ar ranged to bring Lill Lchinann hero for nan extensivo tour in the fall of 1U11." said Mr. Adams. "The American debut of tho 20-year-old Russian violinist, Ef rom Zimballst, who is startling audi ences on tho continent by his marvolous playing, is certain to provide ono of the musical events of the season of 1011. "Fortunately, because of the co-operation of Josef Hofmann, we aro now able to permit his appearance during the month of January next, and to ex tend the length of his tour in the Unit ed States and Canada a full month. Usually Hot' maun fakes a vacation in mid-season, and January was tho time selected. Now. however, many clubs and orchestral societies who have been anx ious to sccuro his services will not be disappointed. Mischa Elman and Fritz Kreisler are also announced and John McCormick nnd Jjouiso Homer engaged for concert. Hanimerstein'fi Play Houso. In September, says Oscar Uamnior stcm, ho will opon a play housu for tho season for comic opera in English on a scale never beforo attempted out sido of grand opera. While Oscar will not invade the New York Grand Opera company lie will bring an English grand onera troupe to this country in Octobor, 3911. and make a tour of the United States. Speaking or his plans for pro ducing comic opera in English, he says: "Tho season will open Scjitombcr ' 32 1 h t Lure of the Fake Dramatic School t By Henrietta Crosman In "Hampton's Manazlnc." 11 d That, In tills country, thoro arc Innu y merablo fuko dramatic schoola which 11 batten upon ignorant nnd simple .stage struck youth, causing tho ruin of hun- dreds and driving many to suicide, la tho f revelation made by Miss .Henrietta Cros- man, the noted acirosK.

Gertrude Hoffman, whose fame is based upon her Salome dancing, is am bitious lo outshine tho histrionic luster of Sarah J3ernhardt. Miss Jfoffinan says she is having- a serious play writ Ion for her. JTowovor, Miss Hoffman is accredited with a senso of humor. Just by tire way of diversion allow mo to scandalizo a bit. Miss Mary Mannoring, it is reported, will ann, marry Fred W.

"I have watched the operatlono of these stage sycophants for years," says Ilss Crosman. "and am firmly of tho opinion that tho great bulk of thorn always excepting tho worthy few aro undoubtedly pornicloua in tholr influ ence and aro designed to tako monoy from the nllly and ambitious but im possible amateur. If tho dramatic schools encouraged only peoplo who had real talent, they would havo very few pupils; but I havo yet to hear of an applicant to a dramatic school being lerused on tho ground that ho or she had no natural gifts." Of tho many cases of defeat which Miss Crosman cites, one of the most pathetic i.1 llV ffollo'vlg- "Tako the case of Molly Daley and what I will call tho Ho ratio Gull dramatic academy.

He announces Viae tho first will begin early in August with the pro duction of "Love Among the Lions" nt the Garrick theater, Now York, and the second In January,- probably with a new play by Plnero. In his original announcement of playc Mr. Frohman said that he had forty at tractions for tho coming year. Of those nineteen will bo produced In the that half season as many us he hay hitherto been able to crowd Into an entire season. .Now owing to the detlectlon In tho ranks of the syndicate nnd the opening up of more time in tho larger cities ho Is able to dou ble hl.s output. Those plays which he has chosen for the llrst half season are, "Love Amomr the Lions." which ho announced recently" had been written by William Gillette and Whichell Smith, the former's nephew "Elecrlcity." which William Gillette wrote for Marie Doro: Augustus Thomas' now play.
