"The Spring: Mulil," a Iture Ecu.st or

One of the most pretentious of re
cent mimic successes will play an en
KiiKcment nt the Auditorium on next
Tuesday, giving a matinee and night
performance, when Messrs. Werba &
Luescher present' their enchanting
operetta, "The Spring Maid." This
lit traction comes direct from its tri
umphant New York run of 300 nights
at the Liberty theater In that city, and
tills in the face of the fact that the
tuneful opera huB been playing to ca
pacity houses every night of its en
gagement there. Not since "The Mer
ry Widow" has there been a musical
production us loudly heralded as "The
Spring Maid" and its entrancing melo
dies are too well known by music
lovers to need any added comment.
They have caught the public's fancy
from the first. Already everyone who
has slightest the ear for music, is
either whistling or humming such
gems of melody from its score as
"Day Dreams," the captivating waltz
number, "Fountain Fay," and the
pleasing romance, "Two Little Love
Bees." These musical numbers as
sung by Miss Luneska, in her own in
imitable manner, are In themselves
sufficient to win popularity for "The
Spring Maid." , '
On rare occasions an actor or ac
tress seems born to a role in a play
and- such ifl the case with Miss Gene
Luneska us the saucy princess Ho.ena.
She Is as refreshing as a spring morn
ing and as sprightly as a wood nymph
Through two quaintly pleasing acts
of the dainty operetta, she flits with
all the bubbling Innocence of a hap
Leo Stark, who has achieved an en
viable reputation both iniAmerlca and
abroad, handles the comedy role of
lloland, a tragedlun. in a manner that
never falls to receive gales or laugh
ter and applause from his audiences.
The production of "The Spring
Maid" will be Indentlcally the same
as It was during Its two seasons run
In' New York city. Not a single change
will be made In It and there will be
the sume chorus of 50 and orchestra
of 20 to adequately handle the tune

play. "The Herfbrds," whose theme
Is up-to-the-minute, deals with the
story of an ambitious mother, who In
ner anxiety to seek a career, has
seemingly neglected her only child, a
daughter. The mother's realization
of her serious mistake comes In the
final scene, when the daughter, who
has been kept at a boarding school,
bored by the loneliness of the play
and lack of her parents' affection, has
fallen In love with the school chauf
feur and runs away to tell her mother
of her intended marriage with her
youthlul - lover; , How the mother
(Viola Allen) grappled wtth this pre
carloua situation and finally succeeds
in winning back her daughter is best
told 'by witnessing this remarkable
play, of mother-love. Miss Allen Ib
well suited in the role of mother. In
fact It Is one of the best parts she
has had in a long time, while the
others In the Cast, Including Charles
