Elvie Watson (born 1914) was a popular child performer of the Vaudeville era in Melbourne. At the age of 4, she already had a stage career with performances in pantomimes, variety shows and revues. Also known as 'Little Elvie', she became well known for her impersonations of famous stars and other novelty acts.
By the age of 10, she had performed in J. C. Williamson's Grand Opera season with Dame Nellie Melba in productions of La Boheme and Aida at His Majesty's Theatre. This FREE exhibition brings to life Elvie's career and the history of Fitzroy and the Melbourne Theatre scene from the end of the Great War to the start of the Depression through original photographs, programs and newspaper clippings.
