"HIGH JINKS" TO-NIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Port Pirie Recorder — 12 March 1918
"HIGH JINKS1' TO-NIGHT. "High Jinks,-" J. C. Williamson's produclion, is a rollicking musical co medy with hilarious situations, and it all happens from the eccentricities of a peculiar Dr. Thorne, who captivates everyone -with a whiff of a special per fume which he dispenses. "Something Seems Tingling,'' .the brightest musi cal number, has been sung and is known by all and sundry, and almost every scratch orchestra in the world ias had a "go" at it: but it is some thing new when rendered by the mem bers of the-O'Councir'Opera.-.Company. The very -words of this song are the plot of the story, which in the comic opera has twice - the. interest, with the other numbers, "Love's Own Kiss," "The Bubble Song." etc., as when sung as concert- numbers. The full O'Con nor Opera Company will appear in the caste, and a change of scenery and ballets will be made. "High Jinks" will be staged to-night at the Town Hall for the farewell performance of the season. Box plans are available ?at. Slater'...
COMIC OPERA AT THE TOWN HALL. "SO LONG LETTY." [Newspaper Article] — Port Pirie Recorder — 12 March 1918
COMIC OPERA AT THE TOWN HAUL. "SO" LONG LETTY." Mr I). 13. O'Connor's, Comic Opera Company appeared in the Town Hall last night before an audience that jacked it in every part, and many were unable to gain admission. The eager ness of the public for seats was largely due to the reputation Mr O'Connor has established for always bringing along something good-a good play and a good company: while another factor was the popularity of "So Long Letty," which- takes high rank as a musical comedy. It is a clever absurdity, based on two good chums swapping wives .;also pats) for a week's trial. There is. -as may be imagined, plenty of scope .n this arrangement for broad comedy, and .the fun is hilarious practically from the rise to the fall of the curtain.' The piece is rich, loo, in sweet, light music, and the company, though nu merically not so strong as others Mr O'Connor lias brought along, gave a .'lever and most enjoyable presenta tion of it. .Miss Katie May was happily -laced as Lefty...
