It's Vaudeville! A Fundraising Event For KCPA!
“It’s Vaudeville,” is a turn of the century variety entertainment, performance under the direction of Wally D. Borgen. The Vaudeville Troupe, which has been together since 2007 performing throughout New Hampshire, donates its time and talents to support non-profit organizations.
This performance will be supporting the Kearsarge Conservatory of
Performing Arts and their scholarship program for young performers interested in dance, theatre, song, and instruments. Vaudeville features family friendly entertainment.
From the late 1800s to the Roaring 20s, Vaudeville was performed in Grange halls, Town Halls, small theaters throughout the country.
Vaudeville was a purely American variety performance growing to enormous popularity and traveling the countryside offering programs of comedy, music, juggling and other novelties and opened theaters in the growing urban hubs. The founders of Vaudeville established fixed policy of cleanliness and order. The use of vulgarity or coarse material was not acceptable so that the house and the entertainment would directly appeal to the support of women and children….” Our Vaudeville Show might not quite meet those strict standards, but kids of all ages will enjoy the show."
Sutton, Georges Mills, and Sunapee, NH were well known as “summer retreats” for Vaudevillians. The performers created new acts and tried them out on those lucky folks who were summering at the boarding houses and hotels on the lake. Our Vaudeville Troupe brings back people who got started in Vaudeville like George Burns and Gracie Allen and Groucho Marx.
Come enjoy our wonderful show! There is something for EVERYONE!
