Greene's Opera House, Cedar Rapids, Iowa, 22 April 1896
'The new 20th Century Girl will be seen at Greene's opera house tonight. The burlesque has been revised and every change has been considerably for the better. Many novelties from the ''other side'' have been introduced and great attention has been given to the selection of pretty girls and beautiful costumes to enhance the novelty of the entertainment. Miss Molly Fuller will be seen in the title role and the following excellent company will act in support; John T. Kelly and Gus Williams (who have starred individually and jointly for the past ten years): Allene Crater (prima donna): Wm. Cameron (comedian); Annie St. Tel (the dancing sunbeam), Thomas Lewis, Harry Kelly, Georgia Hawley, Aimee Van Dyne and Arthur Pell, leader of the orchestra and conductor of a chorus of selected voices.'
