I}; CWMBRAN. ENTERTAINMENT AT THE CATHOLIC SCHOOLS. —A very successful and pleasing dramatic enter- tainment was given in the above schools, by the ataff and scholars, on Thursday eveniug week. After a short introductory speech by the Rev. F. Bernardine,superior of Pontypool Monastery, the programme opened with a pianofort duet by the Misses Collier (who further rendered great assistance in the musical part of the entertain- ment throughout the evening). The children s choir then contributed a pretty song, Ine Bells." This was followed by a humorous! dialogue with a capital moral lesson, entitled Gossiping," by five of the older girls. A very pretty musical drill was then gone through by toe younger children, under the direction of their teacher, Miss M. A. Sullivan. Next came an operetta entitled Jessie's Dream," introduc- ing Jessie and her mamma, the 44 Queen of the »irie\s and her satellites, together with all the aeroes and heroines of nursery rhyme, from Jack the Giant Killer" to the 44 Babes m the food." The second part of the programme opened with a pianoforte solo by Miss J. Collier, ttfnd was followed by a dramatic scene from shakesperfe, 44 Hubert and Arthur," by the older rftys, and a very amusing moral dialogue, Call- names," by the junior boys. The whole ^jteluded with a farccial comedy entitled Wanted, a general servant," which provoked XII,ch merriment, and in which the characters Jere sustained by the whole of the teachers of school. Great praise is due to Miss Lucas (the head mistress) and her assistants for the admirable way in which the children were trained for their respective parts, especially as the whole programme was barely a fortnight in (reparation. The dresses of tne children, &c. were much admired.
