Thea-assesses-+ "Princess Chrysanthemum." "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 entertainment. 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. "A Briton in love should be a subject, not a slave."-FRANK Moizroor. 110
