GRACE SAGE Announcement HERE is in every human heart the desire to see life depicted in dramatic form. Through knowl¬edge of the drama we become acquainted with the customs and environ¬ments of other people. Our imaginations are quickened and developed from the un¬derstanding that comes in hearing the writer's thought expressed in the spoken word. We wish to say a word regarding Miss Sage's presentation of J. Hartley Manners' comedy, "Peg O' My Heart." In this pro¬gram she has chosen a play that is ideal for the Lyceum audience — a story that wins a way to your heart, with its bright, sparkling humor, and delicate touches of pathos. Few realize the tremendous work required to memorize perfectly a play, or the versatility and study of human nature that must be pos¬sessed by an artist who attempts to impersonate every character in a cast. Miss Sage always succeeds in giving the imagination of her audience "wings and not crutches." She has a beautiful voice, youth, beauty, and the unconscious grace that comes only from a perfect technique. Daintily and beautifully, and yet with strength and power, Miss Sage proves herself to be an artist of rare talent and exceptional training. Mr. Phidelah Rice offers the following appreciation. "I take this means of congratulating the hundreds or audiences who are to have the very rare pleasure of hearing Miss Grace Sage in her play recitals during the coming season. I cannot imagine any audience which will not take readily and enthusiastically to her ren¬dition of 'Peg 0' My Heart.' " PHIDELAH RICE. Repertoire I. PEG O’ MY HEART; J.
