James Douglas - at the end of the 1800's

from Account of life as a chorister in the nineteenth century, page 17:

A few years since [resigning from the Upton Choir] (tho’ I forget how many) I took part in a Burlesque called “Aladdin” at the Theatre, taking the character of the Emperor, & also that of the “Counsel for the Plaintiff” in ‘Trial by Jury’. The Entertainment was given for 6 nights & in every respect except financially a thorough success. It was as well staged as any Burlesque I have ever seen, well acted, very pretty music & altogether a most taking piece.
