1913 MRS. CARL THAYER Dramatic Reader and Impersonator Figure MINNEAPOLIS, MINN. 3136 Pleasant Avenue Phone N. W. Colfax 4481 PRESENTING MRS. CARL THAYER, Dramatic Reader and Impersonator. Mrs. Thayer has had a successful and extensive platform experience and her work has the endorsement of the Extension Department of the University of Minnesota. TESTIMONIALS It gives me pleasure to recommend Mrs. Carl Thayer as a reader. She has an easy, dignified stage presence and a sincerity of manner that enables her to hold the attention of her audience. She has a strong, clear and resonant voice well adapted to variety of style. Her repertoire is large and varied.—Marie Gjertsen-Fischer (Mrs. Carlo Fischer) Dramatic Reader and Instructor. Mrs. Carl Thayer appeared in the Metropolitan Opera House on the Wednesday evening program during the annual convention of the Minnesota Federation of Women's Clubs and proved herself a very able entertainer. Perhaps one of the strongest tests of the power of an impersonator is to be placed on the same program with such well known speakers as President Geo. Vincent, State University, and Dr. Chas. Mayo of world wide fame. The two groups of recitations presented by Mrs. Thayer varied in character, calling for the expression of widely different emotions from the deepest of dramatic feeling to the lightest humor; all were rendered with the sure touch of the true artist and the audience showed its enthusiastic appreciation in its insistent demand for encores. The selections were all given with piano accompaniament. Mrs. Thayer's clear voice and perfect enunciation lending itself well to this popular type of interpretation.—Della M. Armstrong, Dramatic Critic and Editor of Official Organ Fifth District Minnesota Federation of Women's Clubs. Artists are sometimes born, sometimes created. Mrs. Thayer was born with a strong artistic spirit. With this gift cultivated and with her experience she is indeed one who captures and holds the hearts of her hearers. Whether it pleases her to giver her audiences light humorous selections, soothing melodies or genuine tragedy, she so successfully imparts her feelings that her success is at once assured; her stage presence is attractive and she has a strong and beautiful personality.— Mrs. John Burns Robinson, Sec. Fifth District Minnesota Federation of Women's Clubs, 1912-14. 4751 Girard Ave. S., Minneapolis. I have had the privilege of hearing Mrs. Carl Thayer read upon several occasions. To me her chief charm is her naturalness; she is skilled in making her characters really live in the minds of those who hear her and her pleasing appearance adds to the delight of listening to her. Her voice is clear, pleasant and very well controlled.—Mrs. Chas. M. Woodham, State Regent, D. of R. It gives me pleasure to express my appreciation of Mrs. Carl Thayer as an interpreter of dramatic thought and feeling and especially do I recommend her recitations with musical accompaniament. During an association of years I have always found her conscientious, efficient and dependable in the discharge of obligation. Her splendid executive ability, training, talent and personality are bound to secure the success of any play or entertainment which she may manage.—Mrs. Franklyn Hynes, Pres. Authors Study Club, Pres. Pathfinder Club 1913-14, Minneapolis.
