UNDER SOUTHERN SKIES. APR T L 16.
Redolent with the breath of magnolia
and orange blossoms is Lottie Blair
Parker's newest play "Under Southern
Skies," which Manager Harry Doel
Parker will present for an engagement
at the Park Theatre on April 10. Many
think from the title that the play is one
dealing with the affairs of state in
Lincoln's time, bat such is not the case.
Under Southern Skies is a love story of
the south, pure and simple, no reference
being made whatever to the Blue and
the Gray. The story is told in simple
fashion as in this celebrated author's
New England Idyl 'Way Down East.
ARE YOU A MASON —APRIL 18.
At the Park Theatre Saturday April
18 will be presented that immensely
clever comedy farce success "Are You
A Mason" which is now in the third
season of its hilarously funny career.
It is the David Harum of farce, a de
cided departure from the hackneyed
and worn out plays based upon old
themes. It is not only funny and dis
tinctive of its kind but also human and
full of interest.
KING DODO. —MONDAY, APRIL 20.
"King Dodo" is the kind of a beauty
show which is in great demand at this
time. The old-time chorus girl who
was so much joked about by the humor
ists —not without some reason—has been
gradually disappearing from the stage
and the call now is for young woman
kind of prepossessing appearance. The
number of managers who have succeed
ed in getting together a number of girls
of good appearance this season is un
usually large and the New York stage
teams with rare collections. Mr.
Savage has done much the same thing
for his "King Dodo" company.
