Excerpt from Short Comedies for Amateur Players, as Given at the Madison Square and Lyceum Theatres, New York, by Amateurs

Most amateurs should put their faith in graceful stage group ing and efective tableaux. These cover a multitude of sins, and may best be relied on by the untried aspirant, together with Hamlet's forest of feathers, and two provincial roses in his razed shoes, to get him a fellowship in a cry of players. I have found that simple dances, sometimes introducing volunteers not cast for the play, are, when possible, desirable at the end of a performance. When, for instance, Two Strings to Her Bow was first given in Sedgwick Hall, at Lenox, Massachusetts, a calcium light in the gallery, thrown in various tints upon a rustic dance of beautiful young girls grouped in an out-door scene, made an efiect as charming as anything I remember on the stage. The same idea was realized at the performance of the same play by amateurs at the Lyceum Theatre, New York.
