Changes at the Theatre

Mr. Fredric Harrison announces that he is unable to produce Mr. Jubilee Drax at the Haymarket next Tuesday as he hoped. The date of production will be fixed shortly.

To avoid clashing with the new Gaiety production, Messers. Vedrenne and Eadie have altered the date of the first performance of The Hawk at the Royalty from Saturday, September 16 to Friday, September 15.

The new Hippodrome revue, Flying Colours, will be produced next Thursday.
