Not much is known about Olitzka Madison or her origins, but her theatrical career seems to have flourished from about 1910 to 1917. During that time she made music hall and pantomime appearances, one of the latter being principal girl to Maud Mortimer's principal boy in Peter Wilkins at the Hippodrome, Paisley, Christmas, 1913. She was also with Laurence Tiller's company on a UK tour in the revue All Smiles during the autumn of 1915.
