April 1910: Kelvinside Dramatic Club

An article on page five of The Glasgow Herald, on Wednesday the 13th of April, 1910, reads:




The Kelvinside Dramatic Club, which is under the direction of Miss Jane Thompson, presented

last night in the Athenaeum Hall, Glasgow, two results of their session of study. The first was a

comodietta by Sir Charles Young, ‘Petticoat Perfidy,’ which was very well received by the large

audience. Thereafter there was given the Shakespearean comedy ‘The Two Gentlemen of Verona.’

The play was exceedingly well performed, reflecting credit upon the patron of the Kelvinside

Dramatic Club, who is Mr F. R. Benson, the indefatigable exponent of Shakespearean drama

throughout the country, as well as upon the stage manager, Miss Thompson. The music was by

‘The Players’ Orchestra, under the conductorship of Mr James Logan.”
