EVENT – Coatham Pier Saloon – Lydia Howard entertainment

Accreditation the Redcar and Saltburn News 30/07/1874.


            Lydia Howard, the talented child actress, is appearing in a round of her favourite characters in the Coatham Pier Saloon this week, and has been received with much enthusiasm. Admirable as are all her other characters, the great features of the programme of this week are, in our opinion, her impersonations of Lady Teazel, in the scene from “The School for Scandal;” Helen, in “The Hunchback;” and her recital of the  poem of “The Leper.” Her beautiful appearance, her grand elocution, her wonderful facial expression, the deep solemnity of her voice, and her marvellously beautiful attitudes in this piece, called the audience in a state of almost breathless admiration. Her rendering of this piece may be described as really magnificent. Miss Howard is ably assisted by Mr Alfred Stirling, who uttered the denunciation of a priest with much power and feeling, and Miss Kathleen Power; who, together with Miss Marion Erle by her charming songs, sung in a rich and melodious voice and Mr Ernest Trevor, as pianist, contribute in no small degree to the success of the entertainment.
