Hudson s Surprise Party gave their second performance last evening, and strongly confirmed the favorable impression produced by their first appearance, a large audience applauding vigorously after every item. The Party will certainly bear comparison with any combination of the kind which has previously visited Dunedin. It differs from most of its predecessors in that great attention is paid to the strictly “musical 3 portion of the programme. The singing of Miss Lillian btanbndge and Mr Wallace IC<ng. juid the piano* forte selections by Miss May Habgood would do credit to a pretentious concert company; and the comic business is strongly presented by Messrs Hudson and Kearns. There is no doubt that in all the great centres of population the superficial pleasures of the variety entertainment, with its sparkling wit and humor, prove more attractive than the thrilling drama, with its exciting scenes and terrible incidents. And as this is pleasure week Mr Hudson and his merry party are certain to do good business. The programme will be changed to-morrow evening.
