A Gem from J.C. Williamson's Palay with Music. 'Canary Cottage' Lyrics and music by Earl

pp.6 inc. covers. Cameo of Dorothy Brunton & Wm. Greene with canaries. For almost three decades
Dorothy Brunton was the queen of the Australian musical comedy stage. Her career spanned the
First World War, the roaring twenties and continued into the depression years. Born in Carlton
in the suburbs of Melbourne. Dorothy made her debut on stage as a five year old with JC
Williamson. 'Canary Cottage’ was described as ‘a riot of colour, blaring music, flashing limbs,
whirling skirts, and extravagant humour.’ The main character had hallucinations involving purple
tarantulas, green and yellow lizards, and alligators. Alfred Frith played this poor soul. The
plot revolved around his attempts to shield another character, an adventurer, from the
consequences of being engaged to two women and having an affair with another. Dorothy played one
of the fiancées. Her entrance to the stage caused the ‘flappers’ in the gallery to become
‘almost hysterical’. She received a tremendous reception. Star power, musical mastery, and the
combined talents of Dorothy, Madge Elliott and Andrew McCunn, made this farce a popular show in
Sydney. Commencing 20 April, Theatre Royal, Adelaide; 1918 commencing 29 June Her Majesty's
Theatre, Sydney. Fine. Price: $45.00 (See picture-press
