Opera House, Treherbert. Miss Kate Randolph's company (under the direction of Mr. John Soden) occupies the boards at the Opera House this week, in The Human Spider." This play is acknowledged by all to be even more sensational than The Face at the Window," and at the same time it con- tains a pretty t love story. The piece abounds with highly sensational and stir- ring situations. In Act 2 the scene, The Haunt of the Crimson Wraith and the Chamber of Death," is without doubt the most weird and fascinating before the public, recalling the great writers of fiction-H. Rider Haggard, Guy Boothby, and Bram Stoker, at their best. Miss Ruby Rosine, who impersonates Milly Tresdale," the intended victim of the "Crimson Wraith," plays her part espe-j cially well, and is well applauded. Miss Kate Randolph, as "Ahmi," makes the part of the Hindoo avenger a great suc- cess. Jenny Jenkins," by Miss Luna Lisle, and "Jack Chignaill," by Mr. J. B. Stewart, not forgetting Romilus Potter," by Mr. P. Crotchet, are charac- ters which never fail to keep the audience in a state of merriment. Mr. John Soden plays "Basil Mortimer" with much power." Sal Lambcote," the confederate of the rogue, Mortimer," is taken by Miss Hetty Merriott, who is perfect in her impersonation of that drunken old hag. On Wednesday and Thursday, an entirely new and romantic play, entitled "Her Soul's Awakening," was presented. The Nihilist Queen," a great detective drama, will be played on Saturday. Next week, Mr. T. Morton Powell's noted company will present the great dramatic may, "Honour Thy Father." Those who can recall Mr. Powell's last visit to Treherbert will remember the crowds which filled the theatre nightly to enjoy this fine play.
