Amateur Dramatic Company: 0050.0385


            The Cranbrook Amateur Dramatic Company leaves on Friday for Creston where they will present “Green Stockings,” a comedy in three acts.  On Saturday the party will proceed to Balfour for the purpose of giving an entertainment for the returned soldiers at the Military Sanatorium.  “Green Stockings” is undoubtedly one of the best English comedies, and abounds in mirth-provoking dialogue and situations of a humorous character.  There will be an opportunity to see the play at the Auditorium on Friday, January 4th, and from the enquiries already being made for tickets, prospects are good for a full house, and in consequence a substantial donation to the funds of the I.O.D.E.  The plan of the hall is at Beattie-Murphy’s drug store.
