villi! and pictures.
Victoria Theatre.
William Penn Theatre.
Photoplay Theatre.
Regent Theatre.
Christie MacDonald,\in that delight
ful little opera, "Sweethearts,'' -by
Victor Herbert, is the attraction at the
Ma.iestic theatre to-night. Good music,
pretty girls, graceful dancing, regular
singing by the principals and dashes
of comical- stuff to make you laugh, all
feature the pretty little love story that
is clean and sweet all the way through.
As for the plot, it is only necessary to
say that a princess is adopted by a
laundress and that the second act is
laid in Silania, and that all ends well
with the princess and the prince living
happily "ever after." Miss Mac Do
nald is, of course, Sylvia, the princess,
and a very charming one. Anne Bus
sert is the village coquette with a pleas
ing voice and more than nimble feet.
The operetta abounds in tuneful nuin
bers, such as "Sweethearts," "Cricket
on the iHearth," "In the Convent They
Never Taught Me That" and others
that you'll b? a-whistling. Miss
Beatty plays the part of a vivacious
laundress with a large brood with much
fervor and conviction. Adv.*
Seven Bracks at Colonial
There is nothing in the entire routine
of acrobatic feats attempted by the
Seven tracks at the Colonial that any
body ever saw presented bv other acts.
The Bracks make a business of in
venting all of their own acrobatic num
bers, and they are wizards in their
line. A couple of seasons ago this act
played the Orpheum and was voted the
very best thing in the acrobatic line
that ever came to town. These seven
brothers will be the headlinerg of a very
good show that comes in for the balance
of the week. The other three acts
will be well up to the standard. There
will also be a new Charles Chaplin
comedy on the picture sheet. Adv.*
At Paxtang
The regular summer vaudeville sea
son will open at the Paxtang Park
theatre this evening. A carefully se
lected bill has been booked by Mana
ger Davis for his opening shu'w. The
Mysterious Brindamour, magician and
handcuff expert, will be the headliner.
Mr. Brindamour has appeared in the
various theatres of Harrisburg many
times and always presents a pleasing
performance. During his engagement
at the park theatre he will introduce
some new noveltys in the way of es
caping from handcuffs and manacles
Other acts on the park bill will be
Jordan, "The Juggling Phiend;"
Kitziimmons and Cameron, Gaffnev and
Dale in comedy songs and dialogue, and
HIP OUI?. r 11:111 Trio, head and limid bal
ancers. Adv.*
At the Hegent
The Redout Theatre will present to
morrow "The (-lemeneeau Case" by
Alexandre Dumas. In Iho Clemen ceau
Case Dumas has attained the capstone
of his towering genius. Of Iza, the
pantherish heroine of this deathless
drama, he himself wrote: ''l shall nev
er create another such character though
] scribble till doomsday."
Iza's sinster beauty ami its fatal
effect 011 the lives of two noble men
form main plot of "The Clemenceau
Case." Pierre, her husband, whom she
casts off for Constantiue Ritz, she
leaves with his career as a talented
sculptor blasted forever. In turn she
toys with the iufactuated Kit/., shutter
ing his hopes, ambitious and home life.
But Pierre saves Kit/, against himself.
With heroic self-sacrifice he allows him
self, apparently, to fall once more un
der l/.a's spell. He meets her in her
oriental boudoir. As she presses her
false lips to Pierre's, he stabs her to
the heart just as Rita enters.
"I have saved you for your wife,"
says Pierre calmly as he telephones for
the police. "As for me, Iza killed my
heart years ago."
Saturday, "The Fifth Command
ment," another Xhubert attraction, in
fixe reels, as usual makes a great Satur
day show. Monday evening a great
organ will play to the public.—Adv. *
