As the programme at the New Tivoli Gardens is of such all-round excellence and the weather has heen ideal for outdoor en- tertainment, it is not surprising that the Adelaide Oval sees a large and enthusiastic audience every evening. There will be a complete change of programme to-night, when three new artists will be seen_ for the first time in Adelaide. The prédominât ing feature will be the musical act of Mr. Ferry Corwey, musical clown. This artist, in addition to being a musician, is a great humorist. All his work is original. He is a musician of unusual ability, who doe not let hi«- comedy effects spoil the musical portion of his fine turn. The other new- comers aro Miss Addie Leigh, soprano and ragtime vocalist, and Mr. J. Vincent, Aus- tralian tenor. Other features of the diver- sified bill will be the Schnigltans, conti- nental juggling equilibrists; Rose and Ellis, the joyous jumping jacks; Bellora, the mimic; Vaude and Verne, comedians; Ibex, shadowgraphist; the Graus Brothers, kings of the Perch; the. Rexos, comedy jugglers; and Achilles and »Ares, acrobats.
Mr. Edward Branscorohe's Costume Comedy Comrany, the Dandies, at the Ex- hibition Gardens, still continue to attract large and enthusiastic audiences. The new programme presented on Thursday evening proved to be a big hit, judging by the en- thusiastic applause of the large audience present. The same programme will be re- peated this evening. Seats may be reserved at the Pianola Company.
