Show Review from the Birmingham Owl:

The Stowaway is based on a poem of the same title, and the company puts on a performance worthy of any theatre'. Mr. J. K. Walton is the good-natured captain; and with Mr. Alex Bradley as the singing boatswain they bring down the house. Miss Eva Lumley plays the stowaway and 'gets out of it every ounce of pathos that the part contains'. Bonnie Goodwin's Picaninnies 'seem able to dance off the stage with their heads and bodies at nearly eighty degrees out of the perpendiculas'.
