"C" (Repertory) Company in Huddersfield

The Era (London, England), Saturday, August 30, 1884; Issue 2397.

THEATRE ROYAL AND OPERA HOUSE. – Lessee, Mr. J. W. White. – Still another of Mr. D'Oyly Carte's companies is bidding for the public patronage here, the week being divided between Pinafore and Patience.

The company, although it includes several old favourites, and amongst them Miss Alice Barnett, is not so strong all round as those which have visited us previously. The chorus, however, is spirited and fully up to, if not above, the average.

Mr. George Thorne plays Bunthorne capitally. Miss Clara Merivale sings the parts of Josephine and Patience excellently; and, of course, Miss Barnett is capital in her parts of Lady Jane and Little Buttercup. Miss Constance Stanhope, Mr. G. Byron Browne, Mr. Frank Boyle, Mr. Furneaux Cooke, and Mr. E. Manning are also efficient members of the troupe.
