It was at the early age of fourteen that Miss Pauline Chase, who has played Peter Pan in Mr. J. M. Barrie's perennial play since 1906, and who has only missed three performances during that time, made her debut at the Casino Theatre, New York, in a musical play, "The Rounders," in 1898. "The Rounders" was subsequently presented in this country under the title of "Kitty Gray." Miss Chase came to England in 1901, and played for four months in "The Girl from Up There" with Miss Edna May at the Duke of York's Theatre. Her first great "hit," however, was when she returned to America and created a sensation as the Pink Pyjama Girl in "The Liberty Belles." Then came her appearance as a dancer in "Peter Pan," in which play she ultimately appeared in the title-role, succeeding Miss Nina Boucicault and Miss Cissie Loftus. Miss Chase has now made England her home.
