Two special performances of "Iolan-the," which was produced three times last week by the Choral Society of Radcliffe College, aided by members of the University Glee Club, will be given tomorrow afternoon and evening at 3 and at 8 o'clock in Agassiz Theatre, Radcliffe. The entire proceeds of both performances will be devoted to a fund for the benefit of the sufferers in the recent Halifax disaster. It was at first planned to give only one performance, but the tickets sold so quickly that the management decided to give two of them. At present, all the tickets for the evening performance have been sold, but several matinee tickets are still on sale at the Co-operative Branch Store, at Amee Brothers and at Herrick's in Boston.
The same cast will appear on Saturday as last week. The singing has been under the direction of Dr. A. T. Davison '06, and Miss Pauline Jones of Radcliffe has acted as coach for the acting and dancing. The direction of the production of the opera has been in the hands of Mrs. H. H. Gallison. The following are the members of the University who are taking part: M. A. Shattuck '19 as Lord Chancellor, A. A. Rouner '20 as Earle of Mountararat, J. F. Lautner '21 as Earle Tolloller, E. C. Bennett '18 as Private Willis, and T. A. Smith as Strephon. In addition to the regular cast, there will be a fairy chorus composed of 34 Radcliffe girls, eight fairy dancers and six garland dancers, as well as a mixed chorus of 15 men and 20 girls.
The three performances of "Iolanthe" which were given on Friday and Saturday of last week were very successful. The singing of the members of the cast was excellent.
