Alfred Quast as the chocolate sol dier himself with a part with just enough comedy in it to give him an opportunity to use to best advantage his natural ability, was unquestionably fhe star of the cast. Miss Viola Evans as Mascha and Miss Lonore Wakner of Boise, the Latter playing the star feminine role, shared honors with Mr Quast.

All three carried their parts well and added materially to the strength of the play. Particularly good was the chorus work and dancing, the latter being presented under the direction of Mrs. George Van de Steeg of Nampa.
