The Fort Dodge Messenger: June 1, 1904

Pirates May Show Elsewhere

Mason City and Humboldt Want Play.

Local Production Will go to One of the Two Places – Would Run Excursion.

Arrangements are being completed by which the home talent production, “The Pirates of Penzance,” so successfully given here Monday and Tuesday evenings, will be produced at either Mason City or Humboldt. Dates are wanted by both towns, and it is possible that the opera will be sung in both Mason City and Humboldt, but its production at one of the two places is assured. This speaks favorably for those taking part in the opera, and for Mr. and Mrs. Joe Brown under whose direction it was given, and besides ample proof that Fort Dodge’s local talent is appreciated elsewhere than here although the hearty appreciation shown during the two productions was most gratifying.

In any case, whether it be Mason City or Humboldt that secures the “Pirates of Penzance,” nothing will be spared to make it as complete a production as given here. The Fifty-sixth regimental band will accompany the singers, and all the specially prepared costumes and scenery will be again used.

Should Mason City secure the opera a special train will be made up here and an excursion run to that place with a rate of one dollar for the round trip. Coaches will be reserved for the members of the band and opera company, and rates will be made for all the towns between hre (sic) and Mason City. In case the opera is given at Humboldt an excursion will likewise be run to that point, with a  small rate, and an excursion run from Albert Lea to Humboldt.
