"BRINGING UP FATHER'
The Temple started the theatrical
season off well yesterday in the bright
and amusing musical comedy, "Bring
ing Up Father at Home."
Those who attended, expecting only
a bunch of good laughs not only heard
plenty of live fun but also some ex
cellent music. .
"Father" was dressed to fit his part
and acted it to perfection. He could
not have been more true to type; if he
had been cut out of one of McManus'
cartoons. Mother was some fun, too;
and also surprised the crowd with a
song that would have made Melba sit
up and take notice. Percy Walling, a
scion of the New York four hundred,
who is on the stage for the fun of it
also has a superb voice. In fact,
nearly the entire "company was as
good a bunch of trill sters as you are
likely to meet on any circuit.
The young ladies of the chorus are
pretty and graceful -and their danc
ing was something to admire. The
Star force was largely represented
and only lack of com prevents it
from partly filling up the bald-headed
row in Gainesville tonight.
The show was a very good one all
the way thru and everybody who saw
it praises it.' There were good crowds
out to see it, afternoon and evening,
and if it should come this way again
this season it could be sure of good
houses again.
The next road show at the Temple
will be "Mutt and Jeff," Monday
night, Oct. 14.
