much fanfare. Headlining the opening act was
Miss Lillian Burkhart, known as
"
The Lady Dainty of Vaudeville" cast in the classic, "A Passing Fancy".

The theater is owned by the
Orpheum Circuit Company, which has quality theaters
throughout the United States. The booking of all acts is done under the closest
tabs in Chicago. Contracts for scenery, decorations, carpets and all the supplies
necessary for a front line performance is also carried out in Chicago.
The Orpheum Circuit with 10 theaters nationwide, pays the railroad fares of all its
performers and has a high priced railroad expert to look after the transportation.
"I am a businessman and my
business is to amuse people."
