Graham Hoadly as Music Hall Chairman in his renowned performance of The Galloping Major!


I have been performing in Music Hall and Variety for almost as long as I have been acting.

I began, as did so many other actors, at Aline Waites' celebrated Aba Daba Music Hall at The Pindar Of Wakefield (now The Water Rat) in Grays Inn Road. It is there I first performed a number with which I have since become inextricably associated - The Galloping Major! With the help of several sturdy riding crops, I have been striking terror into audiences' hearts with it ever since!

Aline Waites also gave me my first chance to perform as Chairman. I was fortunate to have as role models some great Chairmen of that time, among them Peter Spraggon, Geoffrey Robinson and Robin Hunter. Since those early days I have become an established Chairman in my own right, performing at the Players Theatre, and for such well-known companies as Ian Liston's Hiss & Boo, Vincent Hayes' Brick Lane and Deirdre Dee's Song and Supper Music Halls.

I have been in the Chair for such Variety stars as Roy Hudd, Ben Warriss, Danny La Rue, Russ Conway, Edmund Hockridge, Barbara Windsor in major theatres all over the UK, as well as producing my own Music Halls in Britain and the USA.

I have also appeared in Cabaret and on Cruises, notably for Cunard, directed by Jeff Clarke under the auspices of Gillian Humphrey's Concordia Company, performing regulary on the QE2, Seabourne Sun and Caronia. A fantastic way to see the world!
