Figure AGNES MATHIS CHERRY One of America's most Successful Entertainers REDPATH AGNES MATHIS CHERRY Entertainer De Luxe AGNES MATHIS CHERRY is recognized as one of America's most successful entertainers. She has ease of manner, naturalness of style. She is versatile, original. Whether she is reading a play or doing a humorous bit of character work she never fails to fascinate her audiences. She has that something which makes them like her and want her back again for return engagements. Miss Cherry has an extensive repertoire of plays—all sure fire and full of dramatic interest, romance, humor. Best of all, the cuttings of the plays are long enough to give the full story, but not too long. There is never a dull moment. Her character delineation is perfect. A number of her plays are done in special costume. LINCOLN PROGRAM For next season, Miss Cherry is also featuring a complete Lincoln program which will include that very human sketch by Mary Shipman Andrews—Counsel for Defense. The balance of the program will be made up of stories and poems about Lincoln. Many of the stories will be humorous, of course. MY NEIGHBORS IN REVIEW My Neighbors in Review is the title of Miss Cherry's miscellaneous program. Here is a program full of smiles and sniffles, dramatic bits, character impersonations — French, Italian, negro, child, etc. Her child dialect work is so real that you will almost find yourself looking for the thing the child is talking about. Miss Cherry, on request, will include in this program a short cutting of a popular play. PARTIAL REPERTOIRE OF PLAYS Smilin' Through, a beautiful romantic drama, made famous by Jane Cowl, that never grows old. Given in costume. The Littlest Rebel, by Edward Pepple. The most popular of all civil war stories. This is said to be a true story. Miss Cherry spent considerable time in Richmond to get the proper setting for this play. It is one of her greatest successes. Full of love interest, thrills, dramatic moments. Miss Cherry will use a special costume for this play. The Fool, by Channing Pollock, is a powerful preachment without attempting to preach at anyone. A great stage success. The above are some of Miss Cherry's most pronounced successes. Miss Cherry is always adding new plays to her repertoire and will also feature one of the current successes for next season. MANY JOIN IN THE APPLAUSE OF HER WORK Elgin, Illinois Agnes Mathis Cherry gave a recital to a crowded house at the High School Auditorium last night. Her rendition of the play Smilin' Through was wonderful. She was called back for five encores after the program was supposed to be closed. This was Miss Cherry's fourth appearance in Elgin this season. Atlanta, Georgia The Littlest Rebel, given by Agnes Mathis Cherry was one of the finest pieces of dramatic work that has ever come to Atlanta. Chicago, Illinois I wish everybody could have the pleasure and privilege of hearing Agnes Mathis Cherry read The Fool. Josiah Sibley, D. D. Wooster College, Wooster, Ohio As a reader of plays, Agnes Mathis Cherry is one of the best I ever heard. Chas. F. Wishart, D. D., Pres. Oak Park, Illinois Miss Cherry's charming personality, coupled with her gift of impersonation, places her among the desirables for club programs and entertainments. Alice M. Oliver, President, Artists' Council for Club Programs. Quincy, Illinois I cannot say enough in her praise. She has a magnetic personality and is a dramatic artist of the highest type. Her dialect work is marvelously true to nationality and locality. She is a real comedienne. Her impersonations of children are unsurpassed. Lovinia Sclanders, State Chairman Publicity, D. A. R.
