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.

Janet Watson

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
