In September 1933, a number of theatre companies were preparing to present the very first International ‘Fringe’ Festival. One of these was the celebrated London company Celestial Productions – run by the eminent producer Cosmo Smallpiece.
Celestial Productions boasted ‘more stars that the firmament’ in its promotional literature and Cosmo was no stranger to successful acts over the years. He had started his career as a young man in the early 1920’s touring acts around the music halls. However, he was quick to realise that Music Halls were dying, and he wanted to promote high quality acts on professional theatre stages.
For the 1933 London ‘Fringe’ Festival, Cosmo has been invited by his good friend, the impresario/producer George Black, to present his very best act to be top of the bill at the opening Gala Night production at the 2200-seater London Palladium.
Wanting only the very best he had extended an invitation to the top touring artists to audition for him…someone will kill to get the role!
