Theatre Royal, Tonypandy.


Theatre Royal, Tonypandy. The attraction on Monday next is a visit of the popular comedy drama, At Cripple Creek" named after one of the most famous gold-mining camps theworld has ever known. The piece has almost caused as great a furore as The Camp," no less than four companies now playing it in America; and Miss Ida Molesworth and Mr. Mark Blow, who are responsible for the production, have two companies playing it in Ungjand. The piece promises a realistic representation of life in the Wild West, and, as may be imagined, there is lio lack of exciting incidents. There is introduced, for instance, a sale of tw girls by auction, a boxing match, a, wrestiling match, and one of the greatest sensations ever attempted on any stage— the actual-rescue of a cliild thrown from a cliff in mid-air, in full view of the *vudianc<?, As with all these American productions, we may anticipate plenty of genuine American comedy, which the English playwright so often attempts to imitate. Amongst a powerful caste, what should prove of exceptional interest is a wonderful child soprano, Baby Betty, a iittle girl of 11 years of age, who gets the top C. This is a. marvellous range for a child of such tender years. and will, no doubt, prove of great interest to our musical readers.
