Description

Mat-mounted black and white image of a group of young women in costume on a theater stage. A piano sits in the area right in front of the stage, and two benches with slat back are just visible in the foreground of the image. The women wear pompadour hair styles, and several smaller girls sit in front of the group. About half a dozen of the girls wear dark, knee-length, sleeveless dresses, while most of the others wear ankle-length, white dresses with long sleeves.
