"School Maya" does not depend
wholly upon lt novelty. It la brim
full of genuine, 'newness, a quality
hind to find these days In musical
comedy. It In one of those refresh
ing and tuneful affairs that wlil
bear healing and rehearing many
There pre mure than twenty new
song lilts in "School Days," and
plenty of eatehy incidental muolu.
There Is, also humor, a large chorus,
of apparently deHghtfully enthusias
tic youngsters, just old enough to bo
clever, and an endless array of really
attractlvo 6ffeets. The management
has given "School liays" several
new songs that are expected 'to make
na big hits as many of the old
p favorites. .
Among the popular songs to be
, heard, here -will be, "I Want to Be a
Cowboy," "When I Get to Be a Man,"
"They Always Pick on Me," "The
Calendar of lKJver"-"There Ain't No
Mart Ui tHe Moon," Vlddlsh-a-Feet,"
"Oet on the Merry-go-Round,'
"When School Days Comes to Town,"
"Honey Man," "In the Days of Girls
and Boys" and "Biff Dugan." The
talented performers -who will give
these songs and the curable chorus,
fifty-five In number; are most of
them the originals who startled New
York with their wonderful produc
tion. A few new faces will appear
among them, but the new ones
stand for betterment. tru
Timbers continues at tho head of tho
company. Mr. Tlmberg has ben given
an excellent supporting company by Stair
and Havlln. Those In the cast Include
Miss Maudo Campbell In the role of "Non
nie." Grace Chllders, Alma Hill, Bobble
Wagner. Joseph Marks, William Newklrk
and Billy Newton.
Tbe attraction at Boyd's for four nights
and two matinees. Including a special
afternoon performance tomorrow (New
Tear's) will be the distinguished American
tragedian, Robert B. Mantell. supported
by a powerful company under the man
agement of William A. Brady. Mr. Man.
tell will appear In a carefully selected
repertoire of classic plays, with one ex
ception, all by Shakespeare, We are to
see him In "Richard IU" tonight, "As
Tou Like It" tomorrow matinee
Othello" tomorrow night. "Richelieu
Tuesday night. "Hamlet" Wednesday
afternoon and "King Lear" Wednesday
night Except in "As You Like It." in
which he portrays Orlando, the wrestler,
the star has the title role in each pluy!
Mr. Brady has provided the elaborate
production and the Mantell supporting
company, declared to be the best and
most evenly balanced, is reinforced in
some of the plays by nearly 100 men and
women auxiliaries. The version of
"Richard 111" which Mr. Mantell uees Is
Cpllie Cibber's. The full strength of the
Mantell company is required In "Richard
J II." In "As You Like It" Miss Keith
Wakeman will huvo the charming role
of Rosalind. Miss Wake man Is
Mr. Mantells new leading lady and
an actress of great beauty, charm, and
Richelieu", was one of Kdwln Booth's
greatest impersonations. And more mod
ern actors, too, such aa Walker White
Bide, Thomas W. Koine, Creston Clarke,
to mention a few, have been glad to In
clude it in their album of clasisio roles.
The play seems to have undying pop
ularity. It Is perhaps nut too much to
say that no living attor appears to
greater advantage. as the great French
cardinal than Robert Bruce Mantell. He
brings out the subtlety, power, and at
the same time innate kindliness of the
mighty churchman as few players huve
bcoit ablo to do. One of Mantelts finest
achievements Is Hamlet, the melancholy
prince of Denmark, who b.xs been ac
cused, juHtly or unjustly, of a woeful
lack of decinlon.. 'i'liu question of Ham
let's sanity or Insanity appears to never
to have been satisfactorily answered. Mr.
Mantell, In enacting the character, makes
him some times sane, some times insane,
and there can be little question but what
this la tha correct interpretation of thla
complex, many sided role. It was after
witnessing the Mantell performance of
Kin,! Lear." one .of tho most laborious
lulc ever conceived by a dramatist, that
tuo great critic, William Winter, as
beveraled that .Mantell wus tho leader
of the stage in this country, lie is the

The week at the American will have
especial Interest because of tbe Introduc
tion of Boyd Nolan, the new 'leading
man for tho Woodward players. . Mr.
Nolan comes here with" a splendid reputa
tion, and it is expected that he will prove
a welcome addition to the company, al
though he has a most popular player to
follow. Miss Lang will have another strong
role in "The Girl and the Judge,"' one of
Clyde Fitch's great oharacter comedies, a
play that will give her scope for her ability
both as a comedienne and as a serious
actress. It Is not an emotional part, but
it does call for some very serious work,
and In this regard will be a change from
the run of comedies. The production has
been carefully provided, and a fine show
will be given for the opening of the New
Year. The first . perforroane" will ' be
on Sunday afternoon, and the reKulur
matinees will be played, with a special
matinee performance on Monday after
noon. New Year's day..
Jan Kubelik la coming, here to play in
concert. He will be heard at the BrandeU
on January 18. This ' season will be the
"farewell" of one of the .most distinguished
musicians of Ms time. Kubelik Is the
violinist, first, last apt always. First
tho musician, then the virtuoso. Never
theless, though his technique is superior
to that of any master since the. time of
Paifa.nl nl, Kubelik does not exploit it un
duly, nor sacrifice -the essentials of the
composition he is Inlerpretating for the
sake of showy dlsplcy.
"Alma, Where Ho You live?" which
Joseph H. Weber will orrer at the Bran
dels next week, was originally a farce
with music in the French language and
proved the most aeiiaational hit Paris had
ever known. , Tbe book was by the bril
liant Paul llerve and the music by tho
much loved Jcau Briquet. It mas trans
lated into German by Adulpli Phillips,
and into L'nglUh by (Icoc-rh V. Hobart,
who proposed. tbo version Mr. Weber pro
duced in New York. In offering "Alma"
to local playgoers, Mr. Weber promised
a first class production and a competent
cast the latter being headed by Miss
Nanette Flack, Charles A. Murray and
Aubrey Yates, and with each of the roles
consigned to a clever actor and singer. -
Nat M. Wills, "ThtfTlappy Tramp," will
be the head liner at the Orpheum next
week. Although Wills is one of the
biggest names in vaudeville, he has not
been on tbe Orpheum circuit for seven
year.-.' At that time lie was feature
of . the Road Show. La Titcomb, tho
"Singer on Horseback," will bo one of
the .most striking novelties on the bill.
Being a handsome woman and gorgeously
attired. lya Titcomb makes a fascinating
picture as she sits on the, back of one
of her splendid, milk white- horses. Her
performance tomcats of five ' parts, in
troducing songs, serpentine dances and
high school riding. Jackson and Mc
Laren, the Australian wood choppers, will
give an unusual uct. They will give an
exhibition of tree falling as done in their
own country. Large trees are Imported
for-the purpose. A log Blxty inches In
Circumference Is cut through 'In less
time than- it takes to write It. The
mighty, hewers are fine specimens of
athletic manhood and they give a wonder
ful demonstration of skill, strength and
endurance. Tlelr nxe throwing contest
will, be; one of the most .exciting features
of their performance. , John ( W. . World
and Mlndel ' Kingston, , both veretatlle
vaudeville entertainers, , will give an act
consisting of songs, dance's and up-to-dato
nonsense, . McDevitt... Kelly and
Lucey will present "The' Piano Movers,"
a sketch full of complicated situations
and bright lines. "Apple , Blossoms," a
quaint comedy, will be offered by W. B.
Patton and company.- The Cole da Loo no
trio will give a difficult performance on a
strand of steel, many of the tricks betog
performed on a bicycle. .
