Music And Drama
The season has closed. The final
curtain was rung down on "Much Ado
About Nothing" last evening with aj
glowing address by Mr. Henderson-
and much eager applause on the part
of the audience. By the time this
paper reaches the newsstand most of
the Rocltford players will have left
Ann Arbor for various destinations.
Henderson will soon begin an engage-
ment with the Wright players in Kal-
amazoo. Mrs. Trowbridge, Miss
Bronson and Miss Garsey go to
New York, the first named to take part
in "Alice Sit By The Fire" at the
Washington Square theater. Miss
Kelly returns to the Cleveland Play-
house, and Mr. Bohnen to the Good-
man Memorial theatre Chicago. Paul
Stephenson will again direct the pro-
ductions of the Grand Rapids Civic
The season just closed has been the
most successful in the history of the
Rockford Players. The summer season
has grown steadily in popularity, and
while no definite plans are yet laid,
the University has already invited
the company next year. The campus
may sincerely hope that they will
return. The summer session would
be dead indeed ungraced by some
venture of this kind.
The company's work, during the
past six weeks, has for the most part
been unusually good. The individual
actors indeed, have shown more
ability this summer than one would
expect from a stock company in a city
of this size. The most outstanding
part of the season undoubtedly has
been the work of Katherine Wick
Kelly, leading lady of the troupe.
Few of us will forget per tortured
Leslie Crosby, her fanatical Liz, her
intense Hjordis, or her sophisticated
Beatrice. Her other roles of the sea-
son, if less impressive, have all been
done with that finish that marks a
superior artist. Miss Kelly's presence
in the company this summer has lent
the plays a touch that no lesser per-
sonality could have given them.
Roman Bohnen, the leading man,
has also proven himself an actor of
ability. In roles to which he was
suited, he has provided some of the
best work of the summer. Bohnen's
physical and vocal limitations are dis-
tinct handicaps in his profession,
and make it impossible for him to be
as versatile as perhaps the leading
man of a company of this type should.
As Billy Flynn and as Benedick how-
ever he scored distinct triumphs, and
has carried important roles well, each
week of the season.
Elberta Trowbridge is another
member of the cast whose work this
summer leaves a most favorable im-
pression. Hidden by poor roles dur-
ing the first three offerings, this cap-
able actress first revealed the ability
she has displayed. since' as Mary Sun-
shine in "Chicago."
Lillian Bronson and Paul Stephen-
son also deserve special mention.'
With the exception of Miss Bronson's
Roxie Hart, neither has had a large
role all season, yet each has played
eight small parts with uniform per-
fection, and each has shown himself
more than usually versatile. Miss
Bronson single handed brought all
the life there was into "The Man Who
Married A .Dumb "Wife" and provid-
ed clear interesting pictures of
Tessie Kearns and Margaret. Paul
Stephenson's Amos Hart and Honey-
cutt are the parts that stand out in
his season, though he has done every-
thing so well that it is difficult to

name one without adding all the
Robert Henderson has been good
throughout the summer, though it
was not until "March Hares" that he
showed anything unusual. Since that
time he has given two more first
class performances, as Dogberry and
as Merton. In the last named he is
at his very excellent best. As a
Viking or as a hard boiled reporter
or an educated Chinaman Mr. Hen-
derson is not quite convincing. His
fort is juveniles, though he is also
clever in comedy parts of the Dog-
berry or Patiomkin type. Unfortunate-
ly he plays the latter alike and one
is able to recognize the Russian
prince in the illiterate comstable,
Marvel Garnsey has been absolutely
satisfactory in the ingenue roles. She
is the same in every part, yet does
everything convincingly and well. No
resumee of the season would, be com-
plete without mentioning the work of
Henzie Raeburn, in "Chicago" or that
of Samuel Bonell in "Much Ado
About Nothing." Martin Browne was
excellent in "So This Is London" but
has not been satisfactory since. A
word for Thomas Denton, George
Johnson, and Elton Buck who have
played a number of small parts all
summer, might not be out of place.
