A Masonic lodge is a microcosm of society at large.


Queensland's first Daylight Lodge Thespian No. 73, Grand Lodge of Queensland, was formed in 1918.


In its ranks, for the past century, were many actors, musicians, circus managers and theatre producers.


Their colourful lives in theatre, under the big top and on the silver screen are presented below.


It is intended as a suitable beginning to a site seeking to blend past, present and future members

of Queensland's premier Daylight Lodge,


now in its 97th year...
