Little Lord Fauntleroy.
The production in Aahburfcon of a play with such a reputation as that achieved by "Little Lord Fauntleroy," and by, a company specially organised in America for the purpose, is an event which should I attract a very large gathering" in the Oddfellows' Hall .tonight.- -The-play, moreover, is very different from the class usually presented. The story is one of beauty and of childish love and devotion, and if the play is nearly as interesting as the novel "Little Lord Fauntleroy," should be witnessed with delight by a' closely packed house. The success al-. ready achieved by the company and their J play at all events, entitles them to, a pleasant welcome, and this it is safe to predict, will be accorded this evening. The part of Little Lord Fauntleroy wil} be sustained by Miss Gracie IJopkins, who came out from, ATOorioft tp .play it, and who is spoken of by. the press of Australia as a child of wonderful ability. Mr Harry Edwards, a very old Australian favorite, who, during an i extended absence in America, has secured for himself a place of distinction in the histrionic world, will appear as the crusty old Earl of Dorincourt, The cast of characters is identically the same as that engaged in, the origin-.l pr.-^ur^y." ■-■' t^r play at the Princess T';» v.i< 1, M. !:»-i.!'.•■.■. Mr George Wotherspopn, the representative of the authoress and of Mr Sisson, ;of New York, who hold the copyright of t|he play, travels'with the Company, and it? is by arrangement with him that the piece is produced. It may be a long time before the public of Ashburton will hav-e the opportunity of oujoy\ng such a rare diMinatio lueftt »s may be expected this evening. __________________
