Local Talent Play DraIwM Twio Full
Houses, to Opera House and Pleases
"Katcha-Koo", the spectacular local
talent play given under the auspices
of the Dusiness Women's Club, drew
two large audiences to the local thea
tre Monday and Tuesday night and
pleased cn both occasions. Generous
applause during the two presentations
and complimcntary criticisms after
the performances conilrmed the ad
vance notices that the play described
as "An Oriental-American Fantas
tigue," would be one of unusual merit.
Visitors from several surrouniding
towns were In the audiences.
While all of tle participants in the
Play rendered their parts excellently,
exception work on the part of some
made the real success that it was. W.
M'. Meng, the old reliable, lived uip to
and possibly excelled his past reputa
tion, taking the title role. Miss Gladys
Roper, as Selajah, and Miss Martha
Franks, as Mrs. Chattle Gaddin, were
unusually effective in their parts, their
associates, however, not having the
same opportunity to display their
talents. The song "Tell Me 'Why You
[ove Me," by Messrs. William (Giray
and Margaret Wright, proved one of
the delightful features of the evenling,
while the solo dancing of liss larlan
Crows was beautiful in its grace and
charm. Many others were hardly less
worthy of special mention, but to
enumerate all of the deserving would
be to print the entire caste, the Grand
Finale at the close, however, being a
v(ry effective scene.
The success of the entertainment is
(dule to the combined efforts of the (i
rector, .Iliss Grace Wandel, repre.sent
ing the John. It. Rogers Producing
Company, and the Caste itself. Miss
Wn111del proved herself a director of
tact and ability, putting on the play
in a reimarkably short .time. Mrs.
Harry Paulsen, accompanist, was of
great help in staging the performance.
being a -willing and talented musician.
The program was made more enjoy
able by the special musical program
rendered by the local orchestra before
