Daughter of the Theatre    

JANET MARY WATSON, daughter of Richard Watson, one of the    

stars of the J. C. Williamson Gilbert and Sullivan Company, has     not only convinced her parents, but also her kindergarten teacher, that    

she is destined for a stage career.  

Janet Watson

The other day the teacher was telling the class  

a fairy story when four-year-old Janet announced  

that she knew it off by heart.

"Well, you tell it," said the teacher.

Half-way through Janet forgot the story, but   that did not cause her any embarrassment. On   the contrary she calmly turned to the teacher and  

said, "Prompt, please!"

The use of theatrical expressions, however, is   not Janet's sole claim to a theatrical career. She  

is a remarkable mimic, and already knows most of  

her father's Gilbert and Sullivan roles.  

Mrs. Watson plans to have her daughter taught  

singing and stagecraft. She will begin her lessons   in England, however, as the Watsons, who hail  

from South Australia, are returning to London at the conclusion of the     Gilbert and Sullivan tour.
