Lytham Pier - The Orchestra
St.Annes Express, July 1913
The So and So's, who scored such a great success during their
visit a fortnight ago, are, in consequence of that success, at the Pier Pavilion again this
week. It is a capital all-round company, and though the principals are just the same as before,
we noticed one or two new artistes. They are very strong dramatically, and there is plenty of
variety and no end of humour in their entertainments of over two hours. Their potted pantomimes
are screamingly funny. They give shows each afternoon and evening.
The advent of Miss Dorothea Vincent's Cremona Ladies'
Orchestra at the Floral Hall, on Monday, was welcomed by a number of lovers of good music, and
from now to the end of the season, the latter will have glorious feasts provided for them.
Miss Vincent has brought with her some of the former favourites, as well as fresh talent, and
Miss Spooner's vocal contributions have already become immensely popular. Miss Vincent has
brought with her some exquisite violin solos, and in the serenade of Pierne, which she gave on
Monday night one realised again how remarkably cultured a player she is. It is to be hoped the
residents will make it widely known among our visitors that their musical appetites will be
most agreeably appeased at the Floral Hall every afternoon and evening.
Next week, Mr. Harrison is bringing a first- class vaudeville
combination, described as original, funny and refined, and which comprises Miss Sylvia Cavelho
and company in a farcical fantasy in one act—"A visitor from Venus." She also appears in another
farcical sketch "The husband of Peggy," which she has given in the London Coliseum. Miss May
'Mulvey will present her up-to-date comedy playlet "Winning a wife," and the other items
comprise dramatic monologues, operatic selections, etc.
