MUSEUM OF PERFORMING ARTS
Was opened in 2001 and set in the basement adjacent to the cabaret venue DownStairs at the Maj, the museum is a treasure trove of photographs, programmes, posters, press clippings, puppets, scrapbooks, sheet music, designs, recordings, scripts, scores and costumes. Constantly changing exhibitions celebrate Western Australia’s entertainment heritage, from the colony’s early days, through the Gold Rush, to the computerised present. All areas of performing arts are represented: opera, ballet, contemporary dance, musicals, drama, cabaret, vaudeville, revue, circus and stand-up comedy.
