Next Show

April 27, 28 & 29 @ the Hardwick Town House



This April, Vermont Vaudeville is back at the Hardwick Town House with an all-new production: “Password Please:_”. The snowbanks will be melted and the crocuses in bloom, and Vermonters should have a hankering for some fresh entertainment. If, of course, they can pass a two-step verification process, recite the last four digits of their social security number, enter their last three passwords, and name their childhood best friend’s favorite day of the week. Hilarity awaits as Vermont Vaudeville loses its identity to the digital age. The show will feature new work from Brent and Maya McCoy and Modern Times Theater, as well as Vermont Vaudeville’s House Band and surprise guests (#Acrobat, #Ventriloquist) from around New England.

Thursday Night is now Opening Night!

Due to popular demand we’ve added a show. Come support us on Opening Night: Thursday @ 7:30pm!

What is Vaudeville, anyway?

It’s a variety show made up of many unrelated acts. These acts are usually funny, often spectacular, and always memorable. We’ve had people doing flips on pogo sticks, ballet dancers, singers, giant unicycles, jugglers, magicians, sword swallowing, mimes, storytellers, and just about everything in between. The show is tied together by our illustrious emcee.

One of Vermont Vaudeville’s goals is to create an event that leaves a lasting impression for people of all ages. To that end, our shows are community-oriented professional variety shows, we use old theaters that have great atmosphere, we have popcorn popping in the lobby, sometimes we have food trucks parked on the lawn, and the Vermont Vaudeville house band is playing when you enter the theater. It’s an experience.

Stuck in Vermont did a great job of catching what we do in this video:

Vaudeville has been around for a long time. Many of the old theaters, granges, and halls in Vermont were stops on the Vaudeville circuit. W. C. Fields, Mae West, Buster Keaton, the Marx Brothers,  Abbott and Costello, Kate Smith, Cary Grant, Bob Hope,  Judy Garland, Rose Marie, Sammy Davis, Jr., Red Skelton, and The Three Stooges all got their start on the vaudeville stage.
