Summer of 1908 and 2014

This summer has been such an improvement over last year when I had my operation and could not draw or throw pottery. Although the weather has varied from extreme heat to too much rain all at once, I have been throwing pots on my back porch. Since December my work has been selling at a … Continue reading

Special Private Performances by Juvenile Members of the London Company

In his book, Fifty Years of Peter Pan, Roger Lancelyn Green, listed three special private performances by the juvenile members of the London company, beginning with a February 19, 1907 performance followed by another on February 9, 1909, and concluding with one from February 3, 1911. The juvenile performances are difficult as only a few programmes were printed … Continue reading

The 1907-08 Tour Season

Despite my search over the years for early touring programmes of Peter Pan, I have not been able to locate programmes from several years including the 1907-08 through 1908-09 seasons. (And let us not forget the 1906-07 tour with Zena Dare; an elusive programme if ever there was one.) While there were two touring companies … Continue reading

Will There Ever Be Another Blog?

My goodness, I can’t believe how long it has been since I’ve posted something on this site. It’s not for having nothing to write; I have just been so busy with directing chores at school and painting watercolors for a children’s book I’m writing. Meanwhile, I am still looking for Peter Pan ephemera and other items and art … Continue reading

Silk, Chickens and Aero Flights

Hi Folks! It’s been a month or more since I last wrote here an I hope not to let so much time pass for another entry. The last month of school is always very busy for me and this year has proved not to be an exception. My theatre production class produced a very funny … Continue reading

Peter Pan On Tour: The Second Season 1906-07

Two days after their London closing, the Peter Pan company began their tour visiting such cities as Glasgow, Edinburgh, Dublin, Liverpool, and Birmingham. Most of the cast remained intact although Gerald du Maurier (who only played Mr. Darling in London) was replaced by Loring Fernie as both Hook and Mr. Darling and Hilda Mayfren took over Sybil Carlisle’s acting chores … Continue reading

Peter Pan at Theatre du Vaudeville in Paris and Tittell Brune

I was going to write a different entry for this week’s blog when I heard from Andrew Cutmore regarding Violet and Herbert Hollom. He wrote: “I don’t know if what I’m going to say is known or not (I haven’t got Bruce’s book yet, I’m afraid!) but I have recently found out that there was a performance of Peter Pan at … Continue reading

The Holloms- A Family Tradition Continued

THANK YOU FOR YOUR NOTES First of all, let me thank everyone for their notes of concern regarding my arm. The last of the test results were given to me yesterday. Results; no operation necessary. I was  given a steroid shot instead. Secondly, I received an email from Lisa, the head editor at McFarland,  that everything was in order (she … Continue reading

The Holloms in Peter Pan- A Family Tradition

  There have been several noted families whose members appeared in Peter Pan through the years. Margaret Lockwood played Peter to her daughter Julia Lockwood’s Wendy in England while in the U.S. Mary Martin seriously contemplated her daughter Heller playing Wendy until the decision was made to cast her as Liza. And of course, Cathy … Continue reading
