Cast of -Pirates of Penmance" Haa Many
Stara and Chorus Work la of
Exceptionally High Order.
On of the most delightful of the
seasons school entertainments was
given Friday night at Franklin High
School whei students presented the
favorite light opera, "The Pirates of
Penzance," under the direction of Rob
ert' B. Walsh. The very melodious
musical operetta with its bright set
ting and really difficult song num
bers was one of the biggest entertain
ments that any of the Portland High
Schools have attempted during the
year. The young thespian singers
really did justice to the production.
There is romance in the story and
ever so many wild dashing pirates, who
are really good fellows after all, and
Just as many pretty maidens who in
the end finds each a sweetheart.
Wylie Doran won honors with his
able singing and characterization of
the pirate chiertain. Richard.- Etha
Kennedy was charming as the demure
yet arden.t Mable and Harold Oppen
lander sang the part of Samuel.
George . Powers had the laughable but
lovable role of police sergeant; who
is responsible fpr more than one laugh.
Much of the stage had been made
over and enlargedfor the staging of
the "Pirates" and practically all of the
scenery was new.
In the. role of the very pompous
Major-General, with the great big
voice that boasts of tfeing "the model
of a modern major-general." Fred Kel
ly won the admiration and applause of
the audience. Nellie Sanders appeared
in the part of -winsome Edith and
Helen Johnson was winning as Kate.
Esther Baird scored decided successes
Honor is due to both the boys and
girls' chorus, for their singing was a
tribute to the directing of Professor
Walsh and their own ability. Pro
fessor Walsh has studied in Germany
and has a superb bass voice. H has
been directing with choruses and sing
ing with them for months to prepare
them for the production. The pic-
turesaue costumes and stage set
tings are largely due to his ingenuity
and direction also and to that of the
students who ablv assisted him. It
was impressive to see so large a num
ber of students really able to sing and
working in unison.
