Thames (NZ): Musical Production 1909

From the time the Thames Goldfield opened, music halls provided entertainment for the people of The Thames. Musical recitals were put on by visiting professional performers and amateurs from the greater Thames community. Places like the Academy of Music, Theatre Royal, King's Theatre, Oddfellows' Hall and many others were all venues for a wide variety of performances.

Below is the cast of "My Sweetheart." The Thames Musical and Dramatic Society were involved with this production in February 1909.
Cast Members mentioned in the below report are: Tina HATZELL (My Sweetheart), Miss Nellie GIBSON, Miss B MELLETT (Mrs Fleeter), Miss A MCQUADE (Mrs Hatzell), Geo. CRIBB (Farmer Hatzell), Will BONGARD (Tony Faust), W SIMMONDS (Harold Bartlett), Allan MENZIES (Dr Oliver), Mr ARMSTRONG (Joe Shottwell) and Dudley HARCOURT (A Winkleman).
