children with handicaps in group with actors dressed as characters gathered backstage at auditorium theater

Group portrait of children with handicaps grouped with actors dressed as animal characters (a bear, an elephant, and a cat) and comic characters, which performed in a show called Hip Hip Hooray. They are gathered backstage at the Auditorium Theater. The performance, by the Hippodrome Company, took place February 16, 1917 for children from institutions for sick and dependent boys and girls. The children were guests of an anonymous philanthropist who acted through the Chicago Daily News newspaper. The girl with the bow in her hair on the left of the image is standing by an animal character. There are two men standing in the back row, one with a mustache.
