A FINE PLAYHOUSE DEDICATED.
TTlltJ magnificent ntulieitpp that gathered front till parts
of tho Roguo river valley !M outlay evening to bo pros
out nl the opening of tho now Page Theater, was a tribute
of appreciation on tho part of tho people of Dr. 1 C,
Paso's efforts to provide on adequate playhouse for South
ern Oregon and of the management's onderfvor to supply
the demand of a eultured pliblic for high class theatrical
Dr. Pa i;e has shown his faith in Mod ford and tho val
ley's future in a most striking manner, by erecting in a
period of business depression, tho finest theater in the
state outside the metropolis. That. Jus enterprise is ap
preciated by all communities Avas shown by the good will
offering at the initial performance.
Maude Adams in Peter Pan can scarcely be called a
suitable production for tho occasion. The management,
however, had littlo choice, it was So lato in the season.
Peter Pan is a child's play better as a matinee than as a
stellar attraction to dedicate a playhouse. It is a com
monplace fairy story, well acted and elaborately staged-
but not particularly entertaining oNeept to the juvenile
Maude Adams herself is perhaps tho most striking
example of the trust manufactured star now boforo tho
footlights an instance of what money can do with medio
crity. Strong support, elaborate settings, resplendaut
scenic effects and above all plenty of printer's ink horo
you have the formula of creating a modern stellar attrac
tion. The ability of the star makes no difference to the
commercialized Hebrew dictators of the drama. To them
acting is acting and Rosalind is equally fitted to be Hamlet,
or L'Aiglon, or Chanticleer or Peter Pan it's a mere mat
ter of advertising and accessories.
