Our workshop will consist of the exploration and practice of many different avenues of live entertainment, based on the Vaudeville Tradition: singing, dancing, comedy skits, magic, circus acts, clowning, miming etc…  Our goal at the end of the two weeks will be to put together a Vaudeville show for the enjoyment of family and friends.

Vaudeville was a theatrical genre of variety entertainment, popular in the U.S. from the early 1880’s until the early 1930’s.  Each performance was made up of a series of separate unrelated acts grouped together on a common bill.  Types of acts included musicians, dancers, comedians, trained animals, circus tricks, magicians, impersonators, acrobats, one act plays etc…
