THE RICHARDS COMBINATION.

Mr Rickards and the members of his comedy company arrived from Melbourne by the Waihora to day, and will make their first appearance at the Princess’s Theatre tomorrow evening. Most of the scenery is painted by Mr George Gordon, but the drawing room “set” has been specially prepared by Mr J. S. Willis, of this City ; while Messrs Scoullar and Chisholm have been entrusted with the stage furnishing. On account of the popular prices being charged an impression seems to have gained ground that the company is what is known as a “ scratch ” one. We are therefore re-

quested by the management to state that the members (with the exception of the Lopez Bros., late of the Spanish Students) were specially engaged by Mr Rickards for an Australian tour, and that a most successful season has recently been played in Melbourne. The opening piece will be ‘ Ma-in-Law,’ which is said to be a highly amusing comedy.
