Description: On October 20, performers of all kinds will take the stage at the majestic Hardwick Town House. In a Vermont-style tribute to popular game shows, “Who Wants To Be a Vaudevillianaire?” will be a light-hearted evening of comedy, magic, music and mayhem. Hosted by Vermont Vaudeville’s core ensemble, the event will feature talented and funny local performers, the VV house band, and NEK “Celebrity” Judges. The grand-prize winner, or “Vaudevillianaire”, will be invited to perform in Vermont Vaudeville’s 10-year anniversary production the following weekend, October 25-27. Brent McCoy, a Hardwick native who co-founded Vermont Vaudeville in 2009, says that the local, open-call format is a natural progression from the troupe’s grassroots beginnings. “We started by performing for our friends, families, and neighbors. They kept coming back, and our productions kept growing. Now, a decade later, it’s time to invite them to take the stage.” So, anyone with a piece of stagecraft: a song, a joke, a heartfelt story, or a trick, is invited to join. Applications for “Who Wants to Be A Vaudevillianaire” are open to the public until October 6 at www.VermontVaudeville.com. Vermont Vaudeville has a legacy of “laugh till your face hurts” productions, and Vaudevillianaire will be no exception. Recently awarded a Seven Daysies for “Vermont’s Best Comedy Troupe", their semi-annual productions have become must-see events in the region. McCoy hopes that the enthusiasm of Vermont Vaudeville’s loyal fan base will spill over into this new project, and that it will entice hidden talent out of the woodwork. “You never know who’s out there, who’s got something brilliant to share”, he says. “It might be your punning uncle, your niece who loves card tricks, or your teenager with a dazzling voice. We want to create a supportive opportunity for anyone interested in performing.” Anyone and everyone with a diamond-in-the-rough talent, a wacky idea, or a little piece of theater, is encouraged to apply. “Who Wants To Be a Vaudevillianaire” starts at 7:30 sharp on Saturday, October 20. Admission will be by suggested donation of $10 at the door. More information at www.vermontvaudeville.com
