ATTRACTIONS AT THE READING PLAYHOUSES 'TIMELY COMMENTS ON PLAYS AND PLAYERS MUSICAL BURLESQUE AT 0RPHEUM ONCE A WEEK With the appearance of "Hippity Hop" at the Orpheum Theatre this afternoon and evening, musical bur lesque as presented by the Colum bia Amusement Company will here. after become regular onve - a - week offerings to theatregoers of Reading. in travelling from the Casino Thea tre, Philadelphia, to the. Gayety, Pittsburgh, after playing - a week in Scranton, all Columbia attractions will vislVAIlentown, Reading Lan caster Harrisburg, Altoona and WiU liamaport in the order named, " For the firet time since the Colum bia Amusement Company was organized twenty years ago their author ized attractions will visit these cities this season. "Burlesque has fre quently been seen on the local stage. but the - Columbia representative who came on from New York, announces that the wholesome, clean, family entertainment as presented by Co lumbia. vastly differs from the "stage shows" o many people associate with the word ' burlesque." k ORPHEUM "HIPPITY HOP" Peck and Kolb will present their new Columbia Circuit show at the Orpheum theatre today, matinee and night, Oct. 9, featuring the matinee because the' costuming promises to be appealing . to woman audiences. Hippity Hop" is the title of this new revue and MacAlllster and Shannon are' the featured players la a company of nearly 50 experienced bur - lesquers and vaudeville specialists. MacAlllster and Shannon, who will feature their vadueville skit, "Fun in an English Fire House," have gained an enviable reputation because of their success in provoking laughter. OTIS SKINNER IN "MISTER AN TONIO'' ' One of the most notable offerings of the present theatrical season will be presented at the Orpheum theatre, one night only, Thursday, Oct. 2, when Otis Skinner will be seen in his 1 greatest comedy success, "Mister An - ' tonio." ' Mr. Skinner has. long held an enviable position in the esteem of American theatregoers, but it is doubtful if any one of his distin guished characterizations has so won its way into people's hearts, as that of the lovable, optimistic organ grinder in "Mister Antonio." GREENWICH VILLAGE FOLLIES The second annual productidn ot the Greenwich Village Follies, the "revusicl" comedy of life in New York's Quartier liatin, which for the past year has been the accepted vogue in New York and Chicago for that fraction of the amusement seeking public ever on the alert for entertainment that features the borders of convention and tradition, will be shown for the first time in this city at t"e Orpheum theatre, one night only, Friday, Oct. 13. The "Follies" is a staccato succession of' travesty, satirical mimicry, vivid stage pictures and droll comic episodes.'" C RAJAH "Circumstantial Evidence," one of the strongest possible stage arguments against copital punishment, brings John Davidson, distinguished film and dramatic actor, with a company of 12, to Reading for the first three days' of this week, in the headline offering on the Rajah Theatre vaudeville bill. This is one of the most interesting, one of the most powerfully acted and at the eame time one of the costliest offer - , ings in vaudeville today. The Exposition Jubilee Four is a quartet of colored vocalists who offer a "Southern. Breeze of Mirth and Melody." They have fine voices ana sing modern melodies and the old sonys of the cotton belt t Rilly Shone is no longer a mono - logist. He has taken unto himself a professional partner a very attractive young woman named Luiee Squire, and their act has been dubbed ' "Ain't She 'Nice." Miss Squire has been seen in Ziegfield Follieg and with Ed Wynn, and is also a very well known model. The skit is a combination of songs, talk and fashion. ; - Manning and Hall, a man and giri in a comedy skit, "A Horse for Sale," offer some clever . specialties. Booth and Nina, the former a pastmaster in riding a bicycle and the latter a banjoist of remarkable talent, make an unusual combination of entertainers. Their offering, which they call "A 20th Century Novelty," is replete with startling feats. J. C.Booth as V cyclist, has jao peer in this line. Lew and. Paul Murdoek, "Bootleggers," present a "Song and Dance Highball." In. stage slang, dancing is "bootlegging." Their dance highball has as much of a kick as the pre - Volstead kind, and their voices "speak for themselves." ' Sultan is a horse. Miss Emma Lindsay has supervised Sultan's education and she may justly feel proud of her pupil. Sultan does so many unusual things that , at times his work is almost uncanny. The plctureg are the Pathe News; an Aesop's Fables and the Pathe Review. Every Saturday evening there will be two shows at Rajah, at T and 9, without reservation df seats. Marga Waldron and comnanv will be here for Thursday, Friday and baturday.
