“Schleswig-Philistine Von Gotha und Hans-Knees-und-Bumsen-Daisy Und-So-Weiter. über Alles”

should be sung when she arrives and departs.

Appropriate hymn sheets will be provided.

We wouldn’t want ourselves to appear to have no manners, would we?

Please try to learn the words.

Dear lovable, affable Cook.

or creating a tempting dinner in the kitchen;

or taking to the stage.

in the Title role of

Cleopatra.

Queen of the Nile 

 

Beryl, Dolly, Millicent and Mr Cornwallis are reminded that there will be no repetition of the disgraceful  dancing in the aisles or silly noises during the Musical Numbers or The Dance of the Vestal Virgins that accompanied the last performance of Cleopatra at Christmastide.
