"The Mission Play" goes upon its
tour with all the sumptuous settings
which have marked its production at
San Gabriel the productions which
have drawn thousands and which have
spread the fame of the play around
the world. It carries nearly one hun
dred people, making it the largest
traveling troupe on the road. These
eople, most of them, grew up around
an Gabriel, where the play grew up:.
and while they arc not professional
actors, neither are they amateurs.
They have grown into the play as the
play has grown, a part of their lives.
They are Californians real Califor
nia's. Some of them are descendants
of the first Spanish famiiles that set
tled in the province of California. The
Indians in the play are California mis
sion Indians, with Indians of many
other tribes, but all Indians. Then
paint is Indian paint, not grease paint.
The first act is laid on the shores
of the bay Diego, "the Harbor of the

TO THE PEOPLE
This is the most important theatrical announcement I have
ever made during my long career aa a manager in this city.
I have just contracted with Messrs. William Elliott, F. Ray
Comstock and Morris Gest to bring their magnificent production
of "Experience," the most wonderful play in America, to Omaha
at the Boyd theater for three nig.its, commencing Thursday, No
vember 2, with a-bargain matinee Saturday.
"Experience" is, without doubt, the greatest success of this
day ana generation. It ran nint months in New York, seven
months in Chicago and five months in Boston. In every com
munity where it is presented, It invariably receives the enthusi
astic indorsement of the clergy of all creeds and denominations.
. "Experience" is a modern morality drama by George V. Ho
bart, telling in ten vivid and powerful scenes of the temitat o is
confronting Youth the average young man going forth into
the world for Fame and Fortune. '
"Experience" is properly called "The Most Wonderful P!ay In
America." I know of my own knowledge that this play has been
a sensation elsewhere. I am sure it will arouse enormous interest
here. It is t le biggest show I have booked in ten years. I don't
believe another one as big will come along in tie next ten years.
I am proud and happy to be able to bring "Experience" to the
theatergoers of this city. Mail orders now. Seat sale, Monday,
October 30. Best secure your seats early.

Manager Boyd Theater.
