“Donna in the News” reports newly found newspaper articles and advertisements regarding my grandmother, Madonna Montran (aka Donna Montran and Donna Darling). I am always excited when I find a new venue for my grandmother’s exciting show business career of the 1910s and 1920s. 

This week from the Morning Tulsa Daily World (Tulsa, OK) newspaper, dated Aug 8, 1926, I learned that Donna played at the Orpheum Theater in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

The Orpheum

There is plenty of variety on the new bill opening at the Orpheum today.

Donna Darling heads a song and dance revue that is as colorful as it is novel and entertaining. She is supported by a capable cast of entertainers, and it is one of vaudeville’s fasting moving song and dance offerings.

Also on the bill are the following:

  • Bernard Weber “Popular Radio Entertainers”
  • Zeck & Randolph “Grooming the Groom:
  • Sie-Te-Har Troupe (Daredevil Feats)
  • The McCreas
  • The movie, Scarlet Saint

Because of those newly available online articles, I was able to add another venue for Donna’s exciting vaudeville career.

New information added to her career list:
