The enduring practice of staging large-scale international musicals in Australia is documented in the extensive collections from J.C. Williamson Theatres Ltd and the Gordon Frost Organisation. Home-grown musicals reflecting Australian stories are also represented, such as Lola Montez and The Boy From Oz.
Significant collections also trace the careers of musical comedy stars including Gladys Moncrieff, Evie Hayes, Maggie Fitzgibbon, Toni Lamond, Jeff Warren and Reg Livermore, along with designers such as John Truscott and Brian Thomson.
