The Vermont Vaudeville 2014 Winter Tour is over. Catch us next on May 9th & 10th at the Hardwick Town House in Hardwick, Vermont.
“BRATTLEBORO — Winter storm warning: After four years of stirring up crowds in and around the Hardwick area, Vermont Vaudeville has busted loose and is headed our way.
As part of its first statewide tour, this troupe, which combines the old-school, traveling Vaudeville circuit entertainment with new and cutting-edge talents, tricks and techniques, is coming to two local venues this week…”
Vermont Vaudeville had a fantastic weekend of shows in Middlebury and Bennington!
“A thoroughly winning show chock full of talent and skill. Charming and hilarious, Vermont Vaudeville will warm the cockles of even the coldest heart. “

Based in Hardwick, Vermont Vaudeville makes the most of its rural residence. On its website, a stylized logo is adorned with a cow, a classic cupola’d town hall, an NEK sign, a snowflake, a thermometer indicating a very low temp, and a jagged mountain skyline. But the troupe’s devotion to place doesn’t end with art. Justin Lander and Rose Friedman — partners in life as well as onstage, and alums of the Bread and Puppet Theater — sit on the board of the Hardwick Town House, where they have performed for the past five years and have contributed to venue upgrades. “We now have lights and a soundboard,” Lander notes with satisfaction.
This winter, Vermont Vaudeville is touring our unique brand of cutting-edge variety entertainment all over the Green Mountain State. This production will deliver a feeling that other entertainment just can’t match, combining the spectacle of acrobatics and juggling, the energy of live music, and the spontaneity of crowd interaction. This tour is supported in part by an award from the Vermont Arts Council and the National Endowment for the Arts.
