MATSA VAUDEVILLE COMPANY.
o - •« • One of the greatest novelties in this 1 company's entertainment, which is apparently brimful of them, is Mr Leoni; Clarke's exhibition of trained cats, rate, mice, canaries, monkeys, hares ' and numerous other domestic animals. Mr Clarke, who is known throughout Europe as the " Cat King,'" was engaged by Mr George 1 Musgrovein England, where his servioea were in great demand. Mr Frank Lawton, a member of "The Trip to Chinatown'" Company, will give the public an opportunity of hearing the whistling items which, were so much spoken of in Australia. Litfcte Gulliver is a miniature comedian, twenty-four years of age and thirty-four inches in height. The Delevines were brought from Paris last December. They present a comical and clever act, entitled "Satanic Gambols/ and, in conjunction '•with the Winterton sisters, they form a quintette, whilst going through a grotesque dance. Mr John Coleman'B t reputation has preceded him. He was a, great favourite in Australia, and bids fair to outshine all his predecessors. Miss Alice Leamar, the sprightly • " star " o£ the London Gaiety Company, is no doubt still favourably remembered by theatre-goers in Christchurch. In' Mr Ernest Fitts the company possesses a splendid young 'baritone. The company concludes.' its Wellington season this evening, and is expected to arrive here tomorrow afternoon, together with its own orchestra from the Princess Theatre, Melbourne. Its six nights' season will commence on Monday evening at the Theatre Royal. During the season late special . trains will be run to all the suburbs, and to Sumner on Tuesday, Thursday and' Saturday.
