"STARS OF THE FESTIVAL REVUE" DELIGHTS AUDIENCES
FILLS WITH 'AH'S' FOR PRIZE RHYTHM BAND
by Hugh Thompson
The 11 Kiwanis clubs of greater Toronto held their
"stars of the festival" revue in Massey Hall last night.
It constituted the first chapter in their festival-showcase programs.
The second revue of stars takes place Thursday night.
In the purely "cute category," the rhythm band from
Lambton Park public school stole the show. A deafening applause
broke out as soon as they twinkle-toed out in single file on the
great big stage.
They were nattily attired in gold uniforms trimmed with blue
and topped off with pillbox hats. The two teachers sorted their
charming charges into ordered ranks like a widow-dresser of setting
up a display of dolls.
All was in readiness, then on stepped the little girl leader,
marched directly to the podium, gave a imperious rap on the music-stand,
and off went the sweet percussionists, literally hammer and tong,
to Strauss' "Tales from the Vienna Woods." The audience
laughed, but you could tell it was impressed, too, with the excellent
discipline that had been instilled into them in the kindergarten
