As You Like It

From the New York Times, April 13, 1910:

“Y.W.C.A. to Give Play in Aid of Outing at Lake George”

“The Eastern District Branch of the Young Women’s Christian Association reports that the tickets for the benefit performance of ‘As You Like It,’ to be given on Wednesday evening, in Memorial Hall, Brooklyn, have been almost sold out. This production is remarkable for the fact that all of the actors are girls, who have arranged for the performance without professional coaching of any kind. The proceeds are to be used to send delegates to the annual conference at Silver Bay, Lake George.

“This ten days’ outing costs $30, which is beyond the means of most of the club members, nearly all of whom are working girls. Each delegate pays as much as she is able, and the deficit is made up from the benefit fund. The proceeds of ‘As You Like It’ will make a large addition to this fund, so that a strong delegation can be sent to Silver Bay in the Summer.”
