LOCAL AMUSEMENTS. I Theatre floyal (Cardiff). As we have previously announced, the fa.mons, American comedy drama. "The F!tst takes the place of the pantomime, Cinderella," at the Royal this week. This brilliant play has been splendidly staged by Mr Albert Steele, IlndFJr whose rhrectwlI it is being produced, and on Monday evening it received a most cordial welcome from large house. Besides having 1 interesting dialogue throughout, it abounds in incidents intensely dramatic, these being effectively enhanced by the magnifi- cent scenic settings employed. The company Mr Steele has brought together give an all-round first. chss representation of tlia play, and fuliy deserved the hearty applause with which they were frequently greeted. The leading parts were nL;y sustained by Miss Evelyn Grantham (as Balvey Ann), Miss Dudley (Susie), Miss Dora Flange (Mother Macaroni), Miss L-;ni«a Pencil (Mary Martin), Messrs Irii Borlin {as Waller West), Fred Dan by (Samuel Siuth), Charles March (Phillip Martin), William Geddes (Hiram Martin), and Freu Douglas (James Reed). These were satisfactorily supported by Messrs Edward Dalton, Harry Mailey, John Kogan, C. Preecott, George Villiora, Tom G. Wairy. C. Stanley, Fred Eleet. H. Holiday, and F. Lilli. put in the respective characters they assumed. The Fast Mail is a most interesting and, at times, very amusing pluv, and should be wit- nessed by ail who can enjoy good dramatic work ,ttid and soenic display. I Grand Theatres (Cardiff). When The New Baby was psoduced to hilarious ar.d admiring audiences m Cardiff some months ago the universal verdict was that it was the drollest specimen of the genus Farce that had been seen in the Welsh commercial metropolis for a long, long time. Well, The New Baby," the ingenious myth, the futiny figment of a funny fancy, the strange device of au impecunious husband to raise the wind, is again with us, this time at the Grand Theatre. And we laugh as heartily as ever we did at the astounding fairy tales of the stolid Wilberforco Walker, in the persou of Mr Wei ton Dale; at the domestic troubles of the imitative brother- in-law, Commodore Van Gutt through which Mr Henry Kicts ambles and grimaces his comical way at the excruciating antios of the melodramatic Petruchio Gomes. We still admire I the excellent acting of Miss Dolores Drummond as Drusilla Walker, tho deluded spouse, and of Mr Marsh Allen, the alleged new baby and the pert lover. All the other parts are in capable hands and the deception in three acts goes with a swing that demonstrates the leal zest with which every member of the cast euters into his or her part. Monday night's audience was manifestly highly pleased with the New Baby," and good business is assured this week at the Grand. The Empire (Cardiff). I One never tires of the Lumh-re Cinematographe. At least that was the impression gained on Mon- day night at the Cardiff Empire after a most successful exhibition of this wonderful invention. Ib is only a ff\W weeks since it was at this palatial hall, but the enthusiastic demonstrations of delight which greeted tho performances lasl) night show that its popularity is not the least bit on the wane. The scenes presented were beautifully and clearly shown, the most interest- ing being that of a panorama of Hyde Park Corner. The street was vividly pourtrayed and the objects of interest, together with the moving masses of people and traffic, were brought out in their entirety. Not a trifle less remarkable was that of a fire brigade call and a troop of dragoous crossing a river while Brooklyn B:lge. with its teeming traffic, was brought out in detail. But this is not the only attraction on the programme. The four Lyric Sisters contributed a selection of soug and dance, which, to say the least, was most unique, and Jones and Robinson gave an exhibition on parallel bars, whioh evoked hearty applause. Eno, the mimic, contributed some excellent imitations of celebrated artistes, and the Bros, Crescendo went through a musical performance of sterling merit. The serio-comic element was well sustained by Elia Dean, tho Si-iters Vi and Evelyn Poole, and Runsa nnd Arno. each of whom received a cordial reception for their II various selections. Tiie Empire well repay a v is this week, and good business is sure to be done. The Empire (Nawpert), I The Newport Empire was filled with delignted audiences at both performances on Monday evening. The 1 ist of attractions was headed by the Kesne and Rlevos combination, who produced their mirth-provoking farce, entitled The D.i,ir .y u),t i d. The comical situations were well brought cub and created 110 end of amusement, while the scenery was of the brightest possible description. Sergeant Simm's Black Boys also created a good impression with their military mancauvres; and Kennedy and Foy, eccentric comedians, likewise received a good share of applause. Selections wre also g-i ven by Alice Ormonde, serio-comic; Harry Anderson, F. V. St. Clair, and T. W. Anderson, whose individual turns were much appreciated. The Empire (Swansea). I Last nights performances at the Swansea Empire were received with much enthusiasm by crowded audiences. Lieutenant Cole gave the principal turn, and his ventriloquial entertain- ment, inter parsed with humorous remarks, was one of the features of the evening. The Leslie Trio of vocalists were exceedingly good, and the Bruins appeared in their laughable sketch, A Trip to the North Pole." Among the other turns" were Maynard and Calver, who contributed a very acceptable dialogu i under the name of The Heroes of England Miss Mary Glover, vocalist and harpist; Miss Adele Libra, on the rolling glubo Aldow and Theo, instru- on the rolling glubo Aldow and Theo, instru- mentalists and Rex Hariey, comedian. I The Panostiooii (Cardiff). I Business ab this highly-popular Hall never seems to diminish. The reason is not far to seek, i for the attractions are so numerous RS to givu unbounded satisfaction upon each visit. Gala ten, the Greek Mystery, pioves as popular aH evo and the Elviras, phrenologists, are also a soniff? of considerable pleasure. The celebrated pointing of the Tichborne trial aud Van der Heyden's picture ot the Antwerp Socialists are well worth a visit, and the life-like models in wax, together with the Crystal Maze, are very enjoyable. "Cinderella" at the Merthyr Theatre Royal. The Cinder Girl lias made her home for a I fortnight, at all events, in the oinder tip district of old Merthyr, and on Monday night the first performance of the second and last week of tiie visit was given in Mr Will Smithson's Theatre I Royal. It is a long time since a pantomime so excellent and popular as thab of Cinderella, or the Fairy Glass Slipper," has been within such easy reach of the inhabitants of the district. The i old story is retold bri liantly, aad with a due observanco of the pathetic and humorou- side of things, by Mr Feed Graham [ (the redoubtable pickles) and his company, (the redoubtable pickles) and his company, Miss NellioDont is the iady upon whom so aptly falls the responsibility of portraying the heroine. Thete is quite a galaxy of beauties, moab of whem are clever dancers. Ail tho performers ate characteristic—Messrs Knrr and Kooney bemg immense as Gingerella fond Arab,, llk-'w)ohnils3b Miss Marie Dairoyd mpkes an admirable Prince Gallant, attended by Miss Nellie Gow"- as Dandini Mr W. G. Wesley shining as Bvron Stonay Oofless. Mr Onss. Milton is an impriwyive Mephistoph," and fS counteracted with much grace by Cinderella's fairy godmother, Miss Elma Morris. The grand transformation sceue aid the ensuing harlequinade are well worth seeing. I mmm .n iiwm———
