The shew seemed to satisfy the en?
tire house und It literally set the gal?
lery wild. . *
A bunch of sprightly girls, beauti?
ful costumes and good stage settings
carry the piece. Swor is funny in a
coarse, sort of way. but he should have
kept on being. "The Scarecrow," for
the peculiar contortions of face and
body he used so effectively in portray,
ing that character seem to be about
all that he knows.
All of the principals were just good
enough not. to be very bad. The
chorus was well trained, could sing
and was worthy of better headlined.
