"E" ('Iolanthe' No. 2) Company in Margate

The Era (London, England), Saturday, August 9, 1884; Issue 2394.

THE THEATRE. – Miss Sarah Thorne, Lessee. – Large houses have been the rule this week, and the applause has been frequent and hearty. On Monday and Tuesday Mr. D'Oyly Carte's company appeared in the fairy opera Iolanthe,  and on the two following evenings in Patience.

In the former the title-rôle was played by Miss Millie Vere, and the Queen of the Fairies and Phyllis were splendidly represented by Miss Isabelle Muncey and Miss Bessie Wilkinson respectively, their singing being frequently applauded.

Mr. Albert James was an amusing Lord Chancellor, Mr. Albert Christian made a capital Strephon, Mr. F. Thieler was excellent as Private Willis, and the two love-smitten Earls were represented by Messrs. R. Fairbanks and J. Duncan Young.

Misses Freda Bevan, Lucy Carr Shaw, and Florence Terris made attractive fairies.
