"The Princess Chrysanthemum," the operetta presented by the musical
department of the Alton High School, was the most elaborate and spectacular
entertainment ever attempted by the High School. The rhythmic swaying and
bowing of the gayly costumed Japanese girls, the mysterious and weird movements
of the sprites, the suggestion of elusive Fairy-land, the uncanny realness of the
Court Chamberlain and the grotesque impersonation of the Wizard Cat, combined
with music of a decidedly Oriental flavor to produce a most charming and
haunting effect. The humorous situations which were interspersed throughout
the performance, added no little pleasure to the enjoyment of the evening's
It was not the first appearance of many of those who played the leading
roles, so it was to be expected that they would show the naturalness and
unembarrassment due to a familiarity with the stage from before the footlights,
while those who were appearing for the first time reflected great credit upon those
who so faithfully and untiringly expended time and effort in the drilling.
Too much praise cannot be given the girls and boys of the choruses, for their
splendidly concerted work. The ease, grace and unity of action appeared so
simple and easy, that an audience made of people who have had no similar
experience could scarcely appreciate how much tiresome practice is necessary
to produce the simplest effects. The long hours of effort to produce a concerted
floor sweeping Japanese bow, or to become familiar enough with the Japanese
way of crossing the stage so as not to fail once, will undoubtedly have a lasting
effect upon the girls so carefully drilled. Miss Gilmore, who drilled the characters
for the speaking parts, for the Iirst time showed Alton High School the talent
she has for clever interpretation.
Miss Jones, our able Supervisor of Music, has shown the public several times
the ability she possesses in producing superior musical entertainment.
And last, but not least, a profit of one hundred dollars, after paying for very
expensive costumes, shows a very careful business management.
