Janette Pelosi: “Popular Entertainment in the Colonies 1828-1850s”
February 3 @ 1:30 pm - 3:30 pm
The Colonial Secretary, under An Act for regulating places of public exhibition and entertainment (1828), reviewed all applications for performances to be held in New South Wales. The applications include the scripts of plays from 1842 to 1856, including tragedies, comedies and pantomimes. They show the difficulties for theatre managers and performers in gaining the Colonial Secretary’s approval from 1828 to the 1850s.
These talks are open to anyone who would like to attend.
