Have you heard of the marvellous corricks?

They were a family of entertainers that delighted Australian audiences with music, comedy and film in the early 20th century.

Albert Corrick taught his children to dance, sing and play piano, violin, cello, viola, flute, piccolo, clarinet, saxophone, cornet, french horn and the organ!

Vaudeville-style entertainers, the Corrick family toured extensively through New Zealand and Australia in the early 1900s.

At the start of the tour they carried a suitcase each. By the end they were transporting 7 tonnes of equipment!

The Marvellous Corrick family took their performances to the world’s stage in 1907; the tour included South Asia and Europe.

While the family wrapped up their show in 1916, their love of entertainment lives on in the NFSA and The Queen Victoria Museum and Art Gallery collections.
