'''The Vagabonds'' - This happy company of artists ['pierrot players'], appearing twice nightly on the stage of the pavilion, corner of Portage and Vaughan, will be further augmented next week by the arrival of Miss Nonny Lock, who comes from London, England, for a three months' vacation in Canada. Miss Lock has had a most successful stage career, she having first appeared before the footlights at the age of seven, with Ellen Terry and Sir Henry Irving in The Vikings and [as Prince James in] King Charles First, at the Lyceum theatre, London [1901]. She has starred in all the principal cities of England and has been identified with Grit [Kingsway, London, 1908/09], The Blue Bird (playing [or understudying] the role of Mytyl in this [Haymarket, London, 1909/10], The Glad Eye, All of a Sudden Peggy, and others. Just before leaving London Miss Lock was understudying in Buzz Buzz, at the Vaudeville Theatre.'
