THEATRE ROYAL, MERTHYR. Friday last was set apart for the special benefit of the lady taking the part of "DICk Whittington at the Theatre Royal. There was a splendid house. Several new songs were introduced. Mr. Charles Homer sang Anchored in good style, and Miss M. Kessler, the champion lady cornet soloist, delighted the audience with her solos particularly did she excel in the Post Horn Gallop." So great was the applause that Mr. Smitheon has engaged Miss Kessler to appear in his variety combination next week. Mr. Smithson brought down the house with his sketch entitled Chucked," in which he took the principal part admirably. In the palace scene several Merthyr gentlemen appeared on the stage and sang God Bless the Prince of Wales and several Welsh glees. This week the boards are occupied by Mr. Gilbert Elliott's celebrated Adelphi drama, The Bells of Haslemere." Mr. Gilbert Elliot, the manager, takes the 1tart of Frank Beresford, the hero, admirably. The villian of the piece" is Mr. John Paley as John Silkstone," a London financier, who carries out his role with splendid effect. Some time ago Mr. Paley appeared in Merthyr in the Ticket of Leave Man," and his return has delighted all playgoers. Mr. Eric Mayne as Capt. Vere," an adventurer, is exceedingly good, and the other characters are well sustained. Of the ladies, Miss Amy Sangster, as Evelyn Brookfield," the heroine, acts very grace- fully, and Miss Ellen Snow, Miss Cecile Anson, and Miss Helen Farrington are exceedingly smart. Special importance is attached to Friday night, when Mr. Carlysle will be given a "benefit." Mr. Carlysle is the popular musical director, and the im- provement he has effected in the orchestra is praised by all. The W.M. of the Loyal Cambrian Lodge of Freemasons, Bro. Rowland Harris, and the brethren of the lodge will attend, Mr. Carlysle being a member of the craft. We hope there will be a large atten- dance. For next week Mr. Smithson has engaged a splendid and up-to-date variety combination, in which Miss M. Kessler will appear and give cornet solos. Among the artistes we may specially mention the Eccentric Tooles, knockabout comedians the Sisters Niagara, lady swimmers, who appear in a tank con. taining three tons of water Tom Hill, the Welsh comedian and the great Kelmar, ventriloquist. The lady artistes include Miss Plunkett, Miss Rose Wynne, with her flash of comedy, Miss Bella Lay, the serio-comic and ballad vocalist. The songs will be new and up-to-date, and should appeal to Merthyr playgoers.
