The Vaudevillains

We invite you to The Empire music hall for a night you’ll never forget. But tonight’s show will be a little different as the club’s owner has fallen victim to a murder most foul… but whodunnit?

Could it be nervy knife thrower Ray the Blade; sexy Siamese Striplets; The Cerberus Sisters; deranged ventriloquist Albert Frog; macabre mime artist Gaston Gasteau; or perhaps the mystifying magician – The Great Mephisto… Everyone’s a suspect as we discover the secrets of all the weird and wonderful acts who have found themselves upon The Empire’s bill.

From the team behind the multi-award-winning The Terrible Infants, Ernest and The Pale Moon, The Trench and Olivier nominated Alice’s Adventures Underground – Murder, mystery and mayhem combine with Les Enfants Terribles’ dark, twisted wit and inventive theatricality as they present their musical extravaganza to celebrate their fifteenth year.
