In 1963 she joined the cast of 'The GO Show' , the television show which was to make her a household name throughout Australia. Marcie appeared on every national TV variety show in Australia over four decades. In 1967 Marcie, together with the Cook sisters Margaret, Beverley and Wendy formed 'Marcie and the Cookies' which became the top female singing group in Australia.
