A Brief History of The Lambs

February 14, 2018

The Lambs now offers a brief history on the club and its 143 years on contributions to entertainment, music and the arts. The PowerPoint presentation runs about 1 hour, and may be offered on site, or within our clubhouse. We discuss the origins of The Lambs starting in London in 1869, highlight some of the high profile members, and how Lambs were involved in the founding of The Actors’ Fund of America, ASCAP, Paramount Pictures and more.

We have presented at the Long Branch Historical Association, the Bayside Historical Society and at the American Musical Dramatic Academy (AMDA). Organization wishing to schedule the free talk may request one by simply email us at [email protected]
