The following is a review of "That's That", published in the 04 December 1929 Evening Guide, and reprinted in the "40 Years Ago" column of the 04 December 1969 issue.



"That's That" held up the fine record of high class entertainment which the John B. Rogers Company has attained in placing its productions before Port Hope audiences for the local chapter of the I.O.D.E.

St. Mark's Parish Hall was filled for the first performance and the audience was delighted with the matchless acting in this peppy musical comedy.
