A western revusical that, the Argus records, is set on a Canadian ranch (10 February 1930, p.12), At the Crossroads was advertised as 'introducing many new and novel song scenes' (Age 15 September 1928, p.28). In addition to demonstrating his usual skills as a vocalist, step dancer, musician, and comic, Wallace also showed he was more than adept with the lasso. The Brisbane Courier critic writes of Wallace's performance in 1926, for example:
[He] displayed his amazing vitality, even in his songs; and although it would have been difficult to find fault with any member of the company, his absence from the stage creates a hiatus almost as great as if the drums in a band were no longer being sounded. His witticisms went without a limp, leaping into the brain even of the most serious, and distending both their lips and ribs in healthy resounding laughter. Few dancers display more grace and agility and even in this direction alone he would be an acquisition to any company... As Prairie Pete, after every one had laughed themselves hoarse over his seeming simplicity, he was discovered to be a shrewd multi-millionaire, whose multi even the most intelligent had not pierced (11 January 1926, p.16).
In its review of Wallace's performance during the 1930 Melbourne Tivoli season, the Argus further reports that 'He appeared at his best when playing the part of a 'fairy' at an amateur concert promoted by the settlers - a part suggestive of the dame in a pantomime' (10 February 1930, p.12).
The 1925-26 Brisbane season featured such songs as 'The Irish Were Egyptians' (sung by George Wallace, Marshall Crosby, and Sadie Gale), 'Clothes Props' (Marshall Crosby), 'Let it Rain' (Sadie Gale), 'Hula Lou' (Lulla Fanning), and 'I Cried for You' (Marie Nyman).
Highlights of the 1928 production included Wallace's composition, 'Sally the Slavy', which is described in an Age review as a 'masterpiece of burlesque' (17 September 1928, p.12), along with 'There's Something Nice about Everyone' (Ada Scaddan) and 'Together We Two' (Maida Jones). Marie Nyman is also said to have performed 'When The Irish Were Egyptians', which was sung in 1925 as a trio.
