Jonge Liefhebbers ("Young amateurs) was a name given to a company which performed in The African Theatre on 24 August, 1811, probably pupils of François Agron.
Tickets for this particular were sold by Charles Mathurin Villet, L. Meurant and François Agron.
However the term, as a general reference to young amateur players, occurs in various combinations in the source. For instance found as Jonge Toneel (en Dans) Liefhebbers in F.C.L. Bosman, (1928: p. 256).
