can i make a script or program make a phone call?

Hey there,
i have built a system at work using python to send a text message to a cell phone or pager when their equipment changes status. but i am interested in building a way to have a pre-recorded audio message sent to their phone number.
can i make linux make a phone call and send an audio message? Kinda like a voice pager.
dont know where i would start, but i want to keep it as much python as possible.

It's been a long time since I did any of this, but have a look at vgetty.

It's packaged as mgetty-voice.
