FIRST LYCEUM NUMBER
SPLENDID ENTERTAINMENT
The Herron Theatre was almost
completely filled last night by a
large and appreciative audience who
witnessed the splendid program
given by thf Nell Bunnell Concert
Company, the first of the Lyceum
attractions.
The beautiful young women were
each artists in their line and from
the first number until the last they
held the undivided attention of their
audience. That they made a most
favorable impression was evidenced
by the many expressions of approval
and appreciation of their work which
were heard at the close of the en
tertainment. I
Miss Bunnell possesses a voice of
rare sweetness and range, and her
various numbers were beautiful in
deed. Her last number was "An
nie Laurie." and that she saved the
best for the last everyone agreed.
Miss Louise McHenry is a beauti
ful and bewitching little woman and
her interpretations were all that
could be desired. A scene from
"Polly or the Circus. was splendid
ly given and her negro dialect se
lections were equally enjoyable.
Offering a program which was
both heavy and difficult, Miss Louiw.
Milligan charmed all with her niann
numbers, the rendition of which!
proved her to be a musician of
regional ability. Miss Milligan Is
also a very sympathetic accompan-l
1st
The entire entertainment was one
which the most critical could not but
enjoy, however, this is only a fore
runner of the many good things in
store for the people of Lakeland who
patronize the Lyceum this season.
