(d) FREDERICK NEEBE (1843-97). Theatre Manager: Exeter, Weymouth, Devonport, Bath. Starting as an actor, he then became manager of the aforementioned theatres; at one stage of all four simultaneously. In each of these towns he presented a wide range of Victorian theatrical entertainment from Shakespeare to Sensation Plays, from Burlesques to farce. This was also the period when the D'Oyly Carte companies began touring the operas of Gilbert and Sullivan; and Frederick Neebe has his place in D'Oyly Carte history as the man who brought a number of these companies to one or more of his four theatres on a variety of occasions.

BOOK553 SHARP, Keith Drummond BOUFFONNERIE MUSICALE. Th Story of H.B. Farnie HENRY BROUGHAM FARNIE (1836 -1889) was a teacher, writer and journalist in mid-Victorian Fife (Scotland), until his scandalous private life caused him to flee to London. While at first continuing as a journalist, he began writing for the theatre and made the adaptation of French opera bouffe his chosen field. Almost single-handedly he made the genre popular, and popular enough to compete strongly with Gilbert and Sullivan's new English operetta. He had more big hits on the London stage than any of his contemporaries and his best shows were constantly revived in the Edwardian period and between the wars, and were popular throughout the English-speaking world. Then he was forgotten until his pantomime in collaboration with Offenbach, WHITTINGTON, the only show Offenbach ever did to an English text, was revived as a 'millenium' special. But he was a significant figure in the theatre of his day. The Queme Press in conjunction with The Fife Family History Society (2010) pp220, coloured pictorial wraps     £8.50 NEW GANDS BOOK
