An item of more than ordinary in
terest to local theatre goers is the
announcement of the Empress theater
management to the effect that the
Ellis vaudeville company will appear
here tomorrow night.
This company arrived on the steam
ship Northwestern after completing
a tour of principal cities in South
eastern Alaska and, according to
press clippings from Juneau and Ket
chikan newspapers the organization
is of a calibre far ahead of any like
aggregation seen locally in some
time. The program of the visiting
vaudevillians is said to be replete
with a variety of all that is new in
popular songs and latest dances
while the comedian of the organiza
tion. Bobby Mack, offers some un
usually ludicrous comedy sketches
and songs; Barbara Bronell is said
by the company’s manager to be
the best specialty dancer ever seen
locally and her program tomorrow is
composed of toe-dancing, folk danc
ing and the ever popular soft shoe
dancing. Perqueta Courtney is hilled
as a singer of “peppery jazz” num
bers and comes with many laudatory
press notices from principal circuit
theaters from outside.
The company is unquestionably an
excellent organization of entertainers
and .judging from advance informa
tion their offering tomorrow night
will be well worth while.
