Mr Houlston paid tributes to the whole company, and all concerned with the production, and specially mentioned those who had had charge of the various departments. He heartily congratulated Mrs. Hoar upon the outstanding results she had obtained as producer, and also particularly mentioned Mrs. F.G. Paterson, who had come to the Society's rescue and made the production possible. She had followed a line of very able musical directors and has brought out all the charm of Romberg's attractive music. The Society appreciated the excellent support of the public, which was always encouraging. Bouquets were presented to Mrs. Hoar, Mrs. Paterson, Mrs. Geddes Campbell (ballet mistress), Mrs. P. Reece (wardrobe mistress), Mrs. G. Sutherland (accompanist), Mrs. May Hannan (leader of the orchestra) and Mrs. I. Mills (double bass).
