Show Review from the Birmingham Owl:

Eileen Douglas sings a song about 'The Musical Comedy Girl'. Sammy Shields gives 'patter' about a local enthusiast watching a Scottish footbal match. Laurie Wylie imitates popular singers in a small marionette show. A note that 'the management announces that the new entrance and waiting hall will be opened on Friday'.
