Hippodrome, Tonypandy.

Theatre Royal, Tonypandy.


Theatre Royal, Tonypandy. The variety programme provided this week at the Royal could not very well be surpassed, attraction following attraction fritli unfailing regularity, large and appreciative audiences being the natural result. Miss Aidee Mellor, the Lancashire mill girl, sings some oretty songs with good effect. Mr. Will Mclvor, whose capital voice is well under control, gives clever renderings of English, Welsh, Scotch and Irish songs in a manner which wins well-deserved applause. Miss Pattie Hastings brings down the house with her humorous rendering of How would you tike to spoon with me? and other songs. A very clever and amusing turn is that of the Kato's Komical Kidgets with their automatic theatre, the antics of the miniature orchestra adding greatly to the amusement of the audience. As we anti- cipated, the Elliot Savonas have caused somewhat of a sensation with their musical turn, the like of which has not been wit- nessed in Tonypandy before. They play On every imaginable instrument one can think of, and, above all, they play each perfectly and draw from all and sundry I a. concord of sweet sounds. They include in their programme this week the inter- mezzo from" Cavaliera Rusticana," and the overture to William Tell," the latter with novel storm effects. They also give most artistic renderings of many popular tunes. The new patriotic sketch by Mrs. Duckworth, "Wake Un England!" is very effective and has been well received. It deals with a thrilling episode at an English homestead during a supposed invasion of England by a foreign army, and shows the peril attendant upon a civilian attempting to defend his hearth .and home. The characters are well sus- tained, the part of Old John Bullion" being taken by Mr. J. W. Evelin, those of his two sons, Jack and Jim," twin brothers, being taken by Messrs. Cranson and J. Worthy and Miss Maude Steeple as "Mary," his niece. Mr. W. Summers posing as "Prince Fremersdorf," an officer of the invading force. The pictures shown on the Bioscope are most attractive.
