The Footlight Club at the University of Maryland was formally established in 1927 to attract students interested in drama and theater. The club represents a reorganization of the Mask and Bauble Club, organized in the spring of 1926. Footlight put on multiple shows each school year, presenting a mix of comedy and drama. In the 1940s, the club renamed itself University Theatre. This collection consists of one photograph of the group during their winter 1935-1936 comedic production of Paul Osborn's "Oliver, Oliver."
