Denbighites had an opportunity last week of witnessing three of Shakespeare's best plays, viz., "The Taming of the Shrew," "Twelfth night," and Hamlet," performed by one of Mr F R Benson's talented Shakesperean Com- pany. Special mention must be made of Miss Eniel Leslie and Mr Baliol Holloway. As Katherine the Shrew," Miss Leslis's talented acting was immediately recognised, and throughout she represented the Shewish Kate in admirable fashion, being frequently loudly applauded. In the 11 Twelfth Night she splendidly represented the part of Viola," which is indeed a difficult piece of aoting. In Hamlet she took tha role of Ophelia," and her acting was again greatly admired. She put extreme feeling into it, and carried the minds of the audience csmpletely away. Mr Baliol Holloway suited the part of 11 Petruchio," in The Taming of the Shrew," splendidly. He is an extremely fine aotor, and captivated everybody. In the Twelfth Night he waa excellent in the role of Malvolio." It was in Hamlet that be was the biggest suocess. He put his very soul Into the part, and every phrase of it betokened great talent and an actor of the very first rank. All the others of the different castes were ex- cellent. Mr Burgess Wargrave ought to be mentioned, for he was indeed a splendid comedian in all the three plays. Unfortunately there were not v6ry good houses, due, no doubt, to the death of the King.
