"E" ('Iolanthe' No. 2) Company in South Shields

The Era (London, England), Saturday, June 7, 1884; Issue 2385



THEATRE ROYAL. — Lessee, Mr. Fred. Cooke. — The frequenters of this theatre have had a great treat afforded them this week by the engagement of Mr. D'Oyly Carte's company, who have been appearing in the popular opera of Iolanthe, which has drawn crowded houses.

The opera is splendidly mounted, and most admirably acted, the leading artistes being enthusiastically applauded.

Mr. Richard Weathersby appeared as the Lord Chancellor, while the Earls of Mountararat and Tolloller were represented respectively by Mr. Robert Fairbanks and Mr. J. Duncan Young. Mr. Ferdinand Thieler was an excellent Private Willis, while Mr. Albert Christian was exceedingly good as regards his vocal and artistic powers. Miss Isabelle Muncey was a most attractive Fairy Queen; while Miss Millie Vere in the character of Iolanthe won applause.
