Hippodrome, Tonypandy. Mr. William Heillbronn and Company occupy the premier position this week in a strong dramatic episode in one scene, entitled A Devil's Dupe." The piece is extremely interesting and somewhat of the Svengali type, inasmuch as it deals with an Italian adventurer and hypnotist, who holds hypnotic influence over an heiress—Miss Mabel Merton. Mr. Heill- bronn (late of Wilson Barrett's com- panies) takes the part of Gussie Leigh to great advantage; whilst Count Andrea. Ferrara" (the devil and the hypnotist) is cleverly impersonated by Mr. Ellerslie Pyne. Miss Edith Francis plays the part of Mabel with success. Mr. Heilbronn on Friday night next (second house), in addition to the above sketch, will give three interludes, f follow: —Marcus, from the late Mr. ilson Barrett's masterpiece. The Sign of the Cross"; Henry V., from Shakes- rare's immortal tragedy, King Henry Mathias in The Bells "—the great dream scene in which the late Sir Henry Irving made such a splendid and remark- able success and set all London talking. Ellis Barrieton, the Scotch-Canadian vocalist, from the Alhambra, London, ap- pears in a repertoire of catchy chorus songs. His song, "Return," brings down the house and encores are demanded of him. A novel and original turn is that of Cedar and Elgar, comedians, who give a very funny act, "Ye Days ef Olde," depicting in a humorous burlesque the Knights of days gone by. The Three Cyclinis, eccentric automobilists; and Bert Beecham, light comedian, complete the strong programme. The pictures are again beautiful and interesting, includ- ing. amongst others, An Alpine Echo," a delightful picture story, and A Youth- ful Hero."
