“Curtain Call if the story of the great Australian professionals… the vaudeville, variety and musical stars and players who entertained you from the twenties through the Golden Years of vaudeville.
It is laughter and tears.  It is anecdotes by and about the people of the theatre.  It is the Tivoli and J.C. Williamson Celebrity Vaudeville.  It is the Edgley and Dawe Shows.  Harry Wren and Max Reddy Shows.  It is Mahoney and Geraghty at the Cremorne Brisbane.  It is the tent shows that toured the outback for so many years.
Nancye Bridges has been in showbiz for almost forty years, but its not her story.  She is the link
Nancye has been gathering memorabilia for the last thirty years and enjoys contact with many of the magnificent people of the theatre.
They have wanted to tell their stories.  They have given their lives to entertain you in good times and bad, for big money and for wretched money … in sickness and in health.”
