What the Athens Herald says of Mellville's Comedians:
The first performance of Mellvill's Comedians plpa .ed
morlhan two thousand people last night in the big $10,000
tent on the high school campus. Between 500 and 1000
others were turned awav because the management feared
the tent would be overcrowded. The title of the play was "The Broken Commandment," and that it pleased the audience very much
was proven by the hearty applause that greeted every" act. Bert Mellville, comedian, was the hit of the evening,, but Miss Lillian
De Armond and Joe Haggerty and others of the company also received hearty approval. The company as a whole was good and is
the best hat has ever shown in the city. There were a variety of acts displaying comedians, musicians and actors of much ability.
While of course the play by the company of thirty is tho headliner at eSr'pfcxfbrcance, the audience is cheered up and kept from
a tiresome wait between acts by, a variety of pleasing specialties. Athena tel' August. 7.
