r Daughter of the Theatre 1
i JANET MARY WATSON, daughter of Richard Watson, one of the jj
I stars of the J. C. Williamson Gilbert and Sullivan Company, has | 3 not only convinced her parents, but also her kindergarten teacher, that jg
3 she is destined for a stage career.
The other day the teacher was telling the class J
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 I that did not cause her any embarrassment. On | the contrary she calmly turned to the teacher and I
said. "Prompt, please!"
The use of theatrical expressions, however, is :| not Janet's sole claim to a theatrical career. She |
s a remarkable mimic, and already knows most of :|
her father's Gilbert and Sullivan roles. J
Mrs. Watson plans to have her daughter taught |
singing and stagecraft. She will begin her lessons j in England, however, as the Watsons, who hail 1
H from South Australia, are returning to London at the conclusion of the j h Gilbert and Sullivan tour. t
