§258. Travelling theatrical companies; application of provisions

           The provisions of this Part shall not be construed as preventing a minor under sixteen years of age employed by a travelling theatrical company, from taking part in a play or musical comedy produced by such company in a theatre wherein not more than eight performances are given in any one week, (except in a week in which a national or state holiday occurs when nine weekly performances may be given), if a special permit for such employment is obtained from the secretary by the manager of the theatre in which the minor is to appear. This permit shall be issued only if the minor holds a certificate from the state or city where the minor resides permitting his appearance in theatrical performances, and if the secretary is of the opinion that the employment in such performances is not detrimental to the health or morals of the minor.
