-_._--Grand Theatre, Aberaman.


Grand Theatre, Aberaman. This week again an excellent variety and picture programme has been pro- vided by Messrs Poole. The theatre is crowded each evening. Alex Lukos is a big hit. His "Faces in the Fire" is a I striking number—out of the ordinary in every way. The topical song, "Touch Wood is another big success of his. Silent" Tait and Amee give a very busy performance—the busiest 14 min- utes on record, crowded with all sorts of fancy doings and some reallj clever illusions. A lady gymnast performing on horizontal bars is very uncommon. Inez and Pim are wonderfully clever, and their performance has plenty of dash. The nictures at Poole's are always the very latest and carefully selected. Mr George Parker has now returned to take up his old position as stage man- ager. That ever delightful musical comedy, The Gay Gordons," will be the at- traction at the Grand Theatre next week. In spite of the length of time that has elapsed since its initial pro- duction this play with music shows no sign of diminishing popularity. The music and story are so far aljove those MR. REGINALD SUA HI. AM). of the ordinary musical comedy that one can see "The Gay Gordons over and over again without the slightest tedium, and its haunting melodies come with the g'race of artistic inter- pretation, and with the accompaniments of pretty faces, handsome gowns, and beautiful colour groupings, the music, known wherever music is played, hav- ing a new fascination in such a setting. Its success has become proverbial, and needs no further praise than that it maintains the reputation of Mr Sey- mour Hicks as an author and Mr Ro- bert Macdonald as producer. The com- pany to visit Aberaman is exceptionally strong, and includes many well-known musical comedy artistes.
