THE GRAND THEATRE.
Dainty music, gorgeous drsmos and uniformm. and a picturesque setting combine in the wwimi J"00®?8 ^ W<% Dream," which holds the boards of the Grand Theatre during the present

--fnnoew Helena" finds a stately and pleasing
representative in Mima Marjorie Clarke, and Mr. Brett ee 'Count Lother" is the life and moul of the piece.
Like the majority of musical oomediea the story of "A Waltz Dream" is slight and incon-elusive. Tte mumcepLble "Lieut. Niki" (Mr. J. Edward Eraser), whose affection® are captured by the hearing of * certain waits, is not a particularly impressive pemon, and one is unable to resist the impression that it only wanta someone else to sing the alluring wait* tune to unsettle fcho domestic happiness which at the end seems to be attained by the Princda and her husband. But Mr. Eraser is one of the most delightful of tonore, which, after all, is the main thing.
The numbers that live most in the memory are probably the humorous duet "Piccolo," referred to before, the trio in the first act "Our unlucky dynasty," the duet bet ween the Prince I and ' Eranzi"' "I'm going to make you happy," ajid Lothor's topical song ' When I am boss of the |

Like an enthralling Magic It seems.

Pain that is bliis;

That is the refrain that runs through the a lory like a thread, and upon which the structure of ono of the daintiest of musical comediea* is built. Special dmncom in tl;e second act arc given by the Viennese Quartette, whose work iramudi* ately finds favour
' Next week the favourite musical comedy "Miss Hook of Holland," will b* the attraction here.
THE PALACE.
The Bank Holiday crowds which swarmed into the Pnlaoe on Monday evening, were regaled with a capital entertainment.
The Qlazeroff Troupe, who pourtray the life and the habits of the Oiromamana in the Caucasus Mountains bare ncahing to learn in the art of effective dancing, while their picturesque dresses add charm to the turn.
Owen MoQivcney presented 1m Protean success "Bill Bikes." which was a remarkably brilliant effort, and his quick changes from one character to another were accomplished in an incredibly short space of time.
Horace Law son and Dolly O'Dell introduced a pretty and refined act, in which comedy, harmony, and eccentric dancing all find a place.
The eags of Lawson compelled laughter, while Miss O'Dell sings very sweetly, and in her eolo, "Mr. Moon. Moon, Moon, ' with its bewitching chorus, she is an instantaneous success. . !Misa Maggie Eraser is also a particularly bright star, and with her 1\~i .wngs aho was eminently succasful.
In "Don't forget the ship that carried yon over," Miss Eraser imparted that necessary viih to mnko it go, -while in "Moot me at the EJe-*>hant" she made a big hit.
The Three Stewarts perform some difficult and clever gymnastic feats in a manner which makes them seem so oasy to do.
The Four Casinos, the wooden shoe dancers, are experts at their work, while Misa Lily Hayes gained favour with her singing .and dancing.
THE ROYAL PIER.
The military band concerts by the splendid i band of H.M. 2nd Dragoon Guards (Queen's | I (ays), during Good Friday, Saturday, and Easter l Sunday, wero highly appreciated by local muajc | lovers, who gave the band and Umir lalemted j conductor, Mr. J. W. Eaulkncr. a hearty recop-
n*e intermezzo, " The Parade of the Tin Sol-iern," and a rollicking march, "Old Comrades," 11 of which ware played for the firtt time.
Both in light and in heavy muaic the bano rero consistently good, and they form a com -ination that play with spin* and attractiveness.

Above is given part of the refrain of the famous waltz from " A Wai.TZ Drham," that delightful musical comedy, composed by Oscar Straus, which had such a successful run at Daly's Theatre, London, and is the attraction at the Grand Theatre, Southampton, this week. The story of the piece is very interesting, and it is wedded to charming as well as tuneful music, while it is mounted and dressed In a mdst attractive manner.

NEW ALEXANDRA PALACE.
This piece of amusement proved very popular on the Raster Bank Holiday, and attracted large audiences, a very excellent nrogramme being submitted, which afforded much gratification.

"Mummie is Asleep!" was a pathetic tragedy, which warn magnificently produced, and related to a husband's inconsistency, aa well as the un-eel Rah love of hie wife, who ended her life to ensure the happiness of her husband and miet&r.
"It Served Them Right" contained a curious mixture of broad comedy, and incident of a more serious character, but the end was an appropriate one.
