Bengt MANTELL—HAMPER CO. PRESENTS GENEVIEVE HAMPER Figure IN SHAKESPEAREAN PLAYS with JOHN ALEXANDER SUPPORTED BY A LARGE AND EXPERIENCED COMPANY OF RECOGNIZED PLAYERS ANNOUNCEMENT T he actors are on hand, and by their show Y ou shall know all that you are like to know. — MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM. A FEW of the notable organizations in the past who have given Shakespeare worthily, and according to the best traditions, for the enjoyment of thousands of intellectual theatregoers, include Robert B. Mantell, Sothern and Marlowe, and Ben Greet. In presenting a nucleus of these splendid companies in a repertoire consisting of AS YOU LIKE IT THE MERCHANT OF VENICE HAMLET ROMEO AND JULIET JULIUS CAESAR and MACBETH the zenith of classical representation is reached. This fine evening's entertainment has proven to be one of the most popular attractions now before the public, the principle reasons being that in its appeal to the younger generation particularly, they are amply rewarded by the laughs of happiness and thrills of excitement which nightly accompany the presentations, and in Miss Hamper's desire to give the public a worthy and beneficial representation at a remarkably small cost of admission. By special arrangement there will be placed on sale a large number of reserved orchestra and balcony tickets at O N E DOLLAR each for every one of the performances. G ENEVIEVE HAMPER'S fine art has been recognized for many seasons, her co-starring engagement with Robert B. Mantell endeared her to a host of admirers in every city, and her splendid gallery of Shakespeare's famous women characters have been lauded by the press and public wherever she has appeared. Her Rosalind in As Y ou Like It is a delightful conception, her Juliet forms itself into a classic study which appeals to all theatregoers, and her Lady Macbeth has been eulogized by many as being a cameo masterpiece, rarely, if ever equalled. No finer offering of the theatre can be seen and enjoyed, and it is with the greatest pride that the management begs to draw your attention to this coming attraction. Figure JOHN ALEXANDER During his long regime as leading man for Robert B. Mantell, this popular actor created more than a favorable impression by his many fine character studies. In the present repertoire he will be seen as Macbeth, Marc Antony and Orlando, parts most admirably suited to his fine appearance.
