The daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. Samuel Adams, both well known in "the profession," Miss Blanche started her stage career as a child at the Adelphi, and was the first to sing Clement Scott's celebrated patriotic song, "Here Stands a. Post." She also sang this song at Drury Lane as a child in pantomime, at which theatre, by the way, in later years she was principal boy for six consecutive years, during the management of Sir Augustus Harris and Mr. Arthur Collins. She thus holds the record among principal boys at the National Theatre. In the meantime, she also understudied Nellie Farren at the Gaiety, and afterwards toured the provinces with George Edwardes touring companies. For three years she also toured with her own company in "The Telephone Girl," and in " The Medal and the Maid " and "What the Butler Saw " proved that not only in musical comedy, but also in cornedy she was equally at home. It was after her appearance in " What the Butler Saw," as the vivacious American Kittie Barrington, that she was engaged by Mr. Robert Court-neidge to create the part of Mrs. Smith in that record-breaking play, "The Arcadians," to the success of which she contributed not a little.
