Red Riding Hood Again.
Our best society people will turn out next week Thursday, Dec. 31, to witness the reproduction of the operetta "Red Riding Hood," for the benefit of the free dispensary. A list has been circulated among our best citizens to sign themselves for tickets, and enough have been taken to assure of a big house. The first performance was given at a time when most of the people were too busy to attend, and the ladies under whose auspices the operetta was given, either by sickness or other causes were prevented from giving their services, which accounts for the rather small houses that greeted the performances last week. In addition to the regular entertainment, solos by eminent musicians will be rendered between each act, which will add a great deal to the excellence of the entertainment.
It was first decided to repeat the operetta for one matinee and one evening performance, but owing to preoccupation of the opera house it could only be secured for one matinee Thursday, Dec. 31. It will be given in the Grand opera house. The prospects are now that people will be turned away.
