9.25 THE
ALEXANDRA THEATRE ,HULL
The Alexandra Theatre was constructed in the first decade of the century by the Mortons to alleviate the pressure on the Grand, which is now a cinema. For years the 'Alex' held aloft on its stage the torch of melodrama. Many changes have taken place in Hull since those days, but the old theatre remains, now welcoming Variety to its big stage and auditorium. It will not be possible for all the artists in the bill to be heard, but it is hoped that listeners will get good-all-round fare.
10.0 THE LYCEUM THEATRE,
SHEFFIELD
Like Hull's Alexandra Theatre , which the microphone visited earlier this evening, the Lyceum Theatre at Sheffield is already well known to Northern listeners as the source of many excellent music-hall entertainments. The audience often add to the attractions of programmes by their appreciative roars of laughter. The auditorium holds about 2,500 people, and on the stage have trod some of the greatest actors and Variety performers of the day.
Although the general policy of the theatre nowadays is to stage Variety shows, occasionally a straight play is presented. In October, for instance, Godfrey Tearle is to appear in The Amazing Dr. Clitterhouse.
