Variety artists Mike Connors and Queenie Paul began their entrepreneurial careers in early 1931 by hiring Sydney’s Haymarket Theatre and producing a revue called Brighter Days. The line-up included Roy Rene, Jim Gerald and Hector St Clair. Mid-year the pair expanded to Melbourne, leasing Fullers’ Bijou and soon afterwards formed a consortium which traded as Con-Paul Theatres (others included George Dickenson and Herbert Boland). In 1934 Dickenson and Frank Neil took control of the company, renaming it Tivoli Circuit Australia the following year.
