GRAND ENTERTAINMENT AND FARCE AT BARRY DOCKS. IN AID OF ST. MARY'S CHURCH. A very successful entertainment and farce, entitled, Ici on Parle Francais," was given at St. Mary's Hall, Barry Docks, on Monday evening last, but the audience was not as large as the excellence of the performance warranted. The hall had been tastefully decorated for the occasion. The miscellaneous part of the programme was opened by a nicely-rendered tenor solo by Mr H. Seddon, being followed by a side-splitting item by Mr Chris. Griffiths, whose splendidly delivered stump speech created roars of laughter. Then Mrs McKillop, who poreesses a rich soprano voice, beautifully rendered a solo, and she responded with equal effect to an enthusiastic encore. Mr Seddon received a hearty reception for another sweet rendition and Miss Wilde feelingly sang the solo, Mary," being accompanied on the pianoforte by Lady Wilde. The first portion of the programme fittingly concluded with a laugh- able item by "The Girls of Miss Milligan's School," in which the following took part: —Miss Audrey Clarke (mistress), Florence Causer, Agnes Jones, Gladys Hurford, Grace Bray, Elsie Causer, Rettie Thomas, Dorothy McDonald, Olive McDonald, Annie Thomas, Dorothy Jones, and Lily Thomas. After the interval, the farce was given, and it proved a great success. The characters were well chosen, and suited their respective parts to perfection. The acting was extremely good, and we heartily congratulate all concerned upon the pronounced success of the evening's entertainment. The characters were taken as follows:—Major Regulus Rattan, Mr Rimell; Victor Dubois, Mr Hole Mr Spriggins, Mr E. H. Davies Mrs Spriggins, Mrs Longdon Angelina (their daughter), Miss Phillips Julia (wife of Major Rattan), Miss Mabel Phillips; Anna Maria (a maid of all work), Mrs Wilde. Mr E. H. Davies was really excellent as Mr Spriggins; Mrs Wilde, as Anna Maria, made an ideal servant, the humorous personations of both being very amusing. All the performers did their parts, in fact, remarkably well, affording the utmost delight to the audience. The scene of the play is the interior of a house in a fashionable watering place, the residence of Mr Spriggins, who decides to make a bit during the summer by keeping boarders, and places the following notice in his window-" lci on Parle Francais" ("French spoken here"). Monsieur Dubois arrives with a lady (who proves to be Julia, the wife of Major Rattan), and enquires in French for lodgings. Great amusement is caused by Mr Spriggins endeavouring to converse with the inquirer, the former possessing but a thin smatter- ing of French. It happens that Angelina, daughter of Mr Spriggins, had been to Paris, and there met Monsieur Dubois, who was deeply in love with her. He now meets her again, and declares his love. The lodgings were let, when the servant left because she was refused an increase of wages. Thus Mr and Mrs Spriggins, the latter of whom claimed to have descended from a titled family, were left to do the household duties. After some time Major Rattan discovers his wife, and that Mr and Mrs Spriggins have given their consent to Monsieur Dubois to wed their daughter Angelina. Mr Spriggins having decided to take in no more lodgers, Anna Maria, the servant, returns with her baggage. This con- cludes the performance. The evening's enjoyment was brought to a close with the singing of the National Anthem. The entertainment and farce were repeated on National Anthem. The entertainment and farce were repeated on Tuesday evening, and again proved a thorough I success.
