Amateur Theatricals at Llandyrnog. The annual entertainment organized by Mrs Rigby in aid of the school funds, was held on Monday afternoon, at the School, and was, as has always hitherto been the case, very well attended. The audieDca were rewarded for their journey by some excellent and spirited acting, besides the consciousness that they were aupporting a most deserving cause. In the first piece the caste was Mrs Hilary Regrets." Mrs Hilary, Miss F Herzog Dr Power, Mr Wilson Maid, Mrs Rigby. Miss F Herzog acted the part of the widow who was quite ready for consolation in a lifelike mauner, while Mr Wilson impersonated an Irish doctor, with his brogue, in the most natural manner. Mrs Rigby, as the maid, had but little to do, bnt did that little well. The plot of such pieces is of small consequence. Mrs Hilary regrets" that she has to postpone a dinner party and gives the doctor her regrets to post: he forgets to do so. We shall not divulge to those absent the means by which they got out of the scrape cynics might say that they got into a worse one when the farce culminated in the usual wedding. Many laughable incidents caused considerable mirth, and the curtain was rung down to loud applause. Then came the tea interval, to b6 followed by A Dear Bargain," a farcical comedy by Mr C Leigh Coke :—Septimus Armstrong, Mr Copner Wynne Edwards; Mrs Armstrong, Miss Beavan Maria (their servant), Miss D Preston a German Rug Seller, Mr J F Rigby Sergeant of Police, Mr Graham Evans. The part, given briefly, is that Mr and Mrs Armstrong each buy the same rug from a German rug seller, without each other's knowledge, as a wedding anni- versary present. On the police making inquiries at the house the husband leads the pedlar to his smoking room, and both husband and wife stoutly deny having bought a rug to the constable. When the officer departs the pedlar reappears, and, on the couple both repeating that neither of them had bought the rug from them (both had paid him for it already !) he takes possession of it and of his bundle I and departs, leaving them without even the dear bargain that both had paid I for. Mr Copner Wynne Edwards played the young husband to perfection, and Miss Beavan took the part of the wife in a spirited manner. Miss D Preston was excellent as the maid, while Mr J F Rigby was a most life-like presentation of the German Jew. Mr Graham Evans acted the part of village constable as though be had been trained in the force. The piece abounded with comical incidents, and these were fully appreciated by the large audience, who showed their satisfaction both by laughter and by applause. The applause was accentuated when the eni of the piece came, and certainly the actors, who must have aided their natural gifts by a good deal of hard preliminary work, had fully earned this tribute to their success. The tea waa provided by Mra Williams, Llandyrnog Rectory, and her kind friends.
