25th Independence Day Dance North American Association of Venezuela 1966 (program)
1 25th Independence Day Dance North American Association of Venezuela 1966 (program)
The North American Association of Venezuela 1966 soft cover Good 
Surprisingly scarce program published in honor of the 25th Independence Day Dance hosted by the North American Association of Venezuela. Clearly, this was a big event, as the ads in the program are largely national -- Chrysler has the back cover and Helena Rubenstein cosmetics has the flip side. Others inside include Ponds, Sears, Chevrolet, Elizabeth Arden and many more. The program is large at 9"x12" and has much information about the event itself, the liberation of Venezuela, and the ties that bind Venezuela to the United States. Illustrated with black and white photographs. The program is clean and tightly bound, but does show light foxing to outer edge of front cover and also at first two pages. Otherwise very nice. Slight tobacco scent.

Alice (1992 Opera)
2 Alice (1992 Opera)
Hamburg, Germany Thalia Theatre 1992 soft cover Good-plus 
An uncommon item, published in tandem with the opening of the dark opera, Alice, which is based on Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll. The lyrics probe not the story as much as how it pertains to its author. Was not intended for children. Inside front cover (see photo two) is a small drawing signed by its artist. I can't decipher the first namel, but I do believe the last name is Zinn. I immediately thought of David Zinn who does have a history with the Thalia Theatre, but I can't say for sure that this is right. Research shows no account of him having anything to do with the set design for this show. Program is written in both German and English, primarily German, and is illustrated with both black and white photos and drawings plus color plates. Measures 8"x10-1/2" and has 64 pages plus a laid-in insert with info on the songs. Clean and tightly bound with no names or writing, but does show scratches to back cover and a small bit of edge wear, also at back.

Ballet Russe de Monte Carlo Program (1950)
3 Ballet Russe de Monte Carlo Program (1950)
Monte Carlo Ballet Russe de Monte Carlo 1950 Card cover Good condition 
Were it not for some light foxing to top edge of front cover and a few spots to plain back cover this would be a beauty. It's beautiful inside with many photographs. The Ballet Russe de Monte Carlo opened in 1937 and closed in 1968. Inside the program is a leaflet with a program for Paquita, the Nutcracker, and Prince Igor. Principle dancers include Alexandra Danilova, Frederic Franklin, Leon Danielian, Nathalie Oleg Tupine, Roman Jasensky, Nina Novak, Gertrude Tyven, Krassovska Yvonne Chouteau and Robert Lindgren. There are also other dancers pictured. Program measures 9" x 12" and though unpaginated, is quite ample. There is also a center section printed on rose colored paper explaining the Repertoire. there's also a lovely laid-in photo of Nathalie Krassovska.

Chautauqua Summer Center For Music and Drama Season Program 1942 (Plus Related Ephemera)
4 Chautauqua Summer Center For Music and Drama Season Program 1942 (Plus Related Ephemera)
Chautauqua, New York Chautauqua Institution June, 1942 Vol. 7 No. 117 soft cover Very Good 
Very nice clean program which shows the schedule for the entire summer of music and theatre at Chautauqua during the summer of 1942, as well as articles and photographs of the performers. Measures 8-1/2"x 11-1/4" and has 32 pages. There is a vertical crease down the center from having been folded, as so many programs were, but the crease is light. What's interesting about this particular one is the stuff I found inside. The previous owner was a young woman, Elizabeth Lorson, from Wooster, Ohio who was in New York City hoping to be taken on by a voice trainer of merit. Someone from back home wrote the following Western Union telegram (includes envelope) to her which was sent to the Parnassus Club in 1941. It reads, "Fear not about missing the boat. Most likely overcrowded. Anyway advise trying man Genevieve works with Sidney Dietch. His approach remotely like Griffith. Feel winter in New York with right teacher most valuable. You can always come home to me if conditions unhappy. Will write very soon. Lovingly, Eve." Dietch was one of the very finest in the city. Also, included is a postcard stating that the Chautauqua Symphony Orchestra would be broadcasted on the radio August 10th, 1941. The message on the reverse is written by the young lady seeking a voice teacher. It reads "Just got mother's letter telling me May is probably coming. Will sure be glad to see who ever comes. Don't suppose you'd get this before Saturday. Will write soon. Love, Betty." She apparently was part of the music program at Chautauqua in 1941. The final item is a photo of an opera singer named Helen Jepson previously from Akron, Ohio, clipped from an unknown source. Wooster is close enough to Akron to have inspired Betty! (Elizbeth)

Chicago Stagebill The Student Prince 1943
5 Chicago Stagebill The Student Prince 1943
Chicago Chicago Stagebill 1943 soft cover Very good condition 
The Chicago Stagebill in the 40's is something of a replica of New York's Playbill. The names aren't glittering, but it certainly offered a lot of entertainment. Before the show there were 22 musical performances. The show itself, The Student Prince by Sigmund Romberg, was an operetta created from the book and lyrics of Dorothy Donnelly and directed by J.J. Shubert. It debuted at the Erlanger Theatre, Chicago. Program measures 6-3/4" x 9" and has 12 clean, nice pages.

Choirs From the Basilicas and the Vatican (Program Laid-in) 1919
6 Choirs From the Basilicas and the Vatican (Program Laid-in) 1919
New York St. Gregory Musical society Inc. 1919 soft cover Very Good 
This two-piece souvenir of a 1919 evening of liturgical music marks the first time in history that the choirs from the Roman Basilicas and the Vatican performed outside of Rome. The program does not indicate the city directly, but an Ohio reference on back cover and the fact that the location was St. Clair Avenue leads us to believe it had to have been Cleveland. The most important piece, however, is the larger brochure which measures 8x10" and is profusely illustrated and filled with information about the choirs and their history. Although unpaginated, we counted 24. Cover, though simple, is banded in gold with ecclisastical decoration.

Cuyahoga Falls Sesquicentennial Cloth Banner and Sesquicentennial Program (Ohio, 1962)
9 Cuyahoga Falls Sesquicentennial Cloth Banner and Sesquicentennial Program (Ohio, 1962)
Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio City of Cuyahoga Falls soft cover Very good 
This is such a fun find. I've had the sesquicentennial book a couple times, but I've never seen the cloth banner. Yet here they are together from the same previous owner. The banner is quite large at 27"x36" and is printed on one side. There is a small section at the lower right corner where the thread seems a little dirty on the hem, but otherwise it's crisp and clean. The program shows a little wear, but not much, and has no names or writing. Inside there is a laid-in certificate with no name filled in for the Cuyahoga Falls Area Jubilee Belles. The program measures 8-1/2"x11" and is filled with historical photographs in black and white, plus historical info and info about the town's celebration. 90 pages. Sells as a set and ships for $2 in the U.S..

Excelsior Club Cleveland New Year's Eve 1927 Musical Program
10 Excelsior Club Cleveland New Year's Eve 1927 Musical Program "The Good Old Days"
Cleveland, Ohio The Excelsior Club 1927 soft cover Good-plus condition 
Ephemera from the Excelsior Club, a social venue founded in Cleveland in 1872, is not often seen, but here we have a program from New Year's Eve 1927. The club was much like the Cleveland Union Club, but for upscale Jewish families with a Germanic cultural background. From the beginning help from the Halle family of Halle's department store fame was integral to the club's success. The program shows the scenes of a musical "The Good Old Days" which required members to take to the stage as singers, dancers, musicians, actors and tambourine players. Looks like great fun and is a glimpse at a Cleveland landmark that closed in 1931 when the Excelsior melded into the similar Oakwood Club. Their last building became part of Case Western Reserve University. Program measures 5-1/2" x 9-1/2" and opens to two pages, plus another at back. Overall good, but it had been folded horizontally. I ironed it and it is now flat. Program includes many names.

11 Game Face Cleveland Indian Scorebook Magazine Commemorative Issue 1993; Tribute to Cleveland Stadium Official Souvenir Print October 2, 1993 (Cleveland Indians Baseball)
Cleveland, Ohio Cleveland Indians Baseball 1993 soft cover Very good 
These items came together so I am leaving them together, as both are mementos of the last Cleveland Indians baseball season to be held at the old Cleveland Stadium. The magazine measures 8-1/2"x11" and still retains its unused scorecards for the final series at Cleveland Stadium. It's a glossy magazine with lots of photos and Cleveland baseball history. Magazine is clean and bright with just one tear to lower front corner which was repaired on reverse side with tape by former owner. The print measures 8"x11" also and shows likenesses of Andre Thornton, Mel Harder, Bob Feller and Lou Boudreau. The text reads "Tribute to Cleveland Stadium October 2, 1993." Nice package!

Los Angeles 20th Century Fox Film Corporation 1969 soft cover Very Good 
Who can forget Barbra Streisand as the gorgeous Dolly Levi and the thunderous approval of the waiters when she descended the stairs in that sparkly gold dress? Makes me want to see it again! The booklet is filled with stills, most in full color, some in black and white, plus lots of info on the cast and the making of the movie. 47 pages of fun. Measures 8-1/2"x11-1/4"

Judy Garland RKO Palace Theatre Program 1956
13 Judy Garland RKO Palace Theatre Program 1956
New York RKO Palace Theatre 1956 soft cover Very Good 
Very nice clean program which is more leaflet than booklet, but not too often seen. It's not a play, more of a review with a number of different acts including the Amin Brothers, Paul Sydell, Joe Smith and Charlie Dale, Giselle and Francois Szony. Alan King (comedian), and primarily -- JUDY GARLAND! There's info about each act, but Judy takes center stage. Measures 6"x9" and is clean with no tears and no names. It was folded vertically at one time, but is totally flat now. Very nice.

Playbill Album New York Theater Programs (1968-80's)
16 Playbill Album New York Theater Programs (1968-80's)
New York Playbill 1968-80's Very good condition Hard cover binder; soft cover programs Very good condition 
I saw the word Playbill on the spine of the binder and had to have it, especially when I saw that the shows were older, from 1968 to the 80's. There are 14 programs in all, most of which are Playbills from the various New York City Broadway theaters, but there's also a couple from community theaters close by but outside the city, including Jones Beach. Some programs have ticket stubs stapled to them which is always a bonus. New York shows include The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie; Plaza Suite; 1776; Company; Sleuth; No, No Nanette; Annie; Peter Pan and more. Very nice find for a theater buff.

17 Playbill Ginger Rogers in Hello Dolly. St. James Theatre, 1965
New York Playbill Incorporated October, 1965 Volume II, Number 10 soft cover Very good condition 
Ginger Rogers took on the Broadway role of Dolly Gallagher Levi in Janaury, 1964 and kept it until February 25, 1967 when Carol Channing took over. Did you know that the play was written by Thornton Wilder? I didn't. The program is nicely kept -- there's just a few little freckles to outer edge of front cover -- otherwise it's great. AND it hasn't been vertically creased as is so often the case. Program measures 6" x 9" and has 56 pages.

Program Bal Du Moulin Rouge Paris Fantastic (1970)
18 Program Bal Du Moulin Rouge Paris Fantastic (1970)
Paris, France Editions IKA 1970 soft cover Very Good condition 
Outstanding cover design and lots of photos inside showing the various acts at the Moulin Rouge Fantastic. Some are in color, others in black and white, but both show the grandness of the show. The program is in French, but it isn't hard to get the gist. It's a very attractive keepsake from the legendary cabaret of Montmarte. The program is viewed vertically at first glance, but is turned horizontally to read it. It measures 8-1/2" x 10-3/4" and has 21 counted pages. Very clean and nice. (ENT.-2)

Program Metropolitan Opera House Romeo & Juliet (Maria Tallchief, 1945)
19 Program Metropolitan Opera House Romeo & Juliet (Maria Tallchief, 1945)
New York City Metropolitan Opera House 1945 soft cover Very good condition 
This is a very nicely kept program. Had it not been folded in half vertically, as theater-goers tend to do, it would be perfect. I ironed it and put it in the book press and it's now completely flat. The program shows the seating diagram, and of course the cast of the narrative ballet, Romeo and Juliet, which was staged in one act. I checked out the list of performers and found Maria Tallchief in a lesser role. But a little research showed that at the time Tallchief, the first Native American ballerina, was dancing for the Ballet Russe de Monte Carlo. This was very early in her career, but in just two years (1947) she would become the first prima ballerina of the New York City Ballet. The peogram measures 6-1/2" x 9" with 24 pages. Great ads too.

20 Program: The Regimental Band of the Scots Guards the Pipes, Drums & Highland Dancers of the Black Watch (1983)
New York Columbia Artists Festival Corp. 1983 soft cover Good 
Nice, clean oversized program which measures 9"x12" and is illustrated throughout with both black and white and color photographs. Pages are not numbered, but I counted 22, all filled with information about the Scots Guards, the Black Watch and the Regimental Band, as well as about the Highland dancing and the bagpipe. The program itself takes up a two page spread at center. Only faults are two light scratches to cover and a small bit of rubbing to bottom front corner next to spine. Pages show no writing or creasing.
