Vermont Vaudeville

A Grassroots Theater Company since 2009

Vermont Vaudeville has worked with over 80 guest acts in 20 different theaters and created 21 brand new productions, reaching many thousands of people throughout Vermont.

We create variety shows 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.

“Intelligent… original… engaging… awe-inspiring.”
- The Hardwick Gazette

 “A thoroughly winning show chock full of talent and skill. Charming and hilarious, Vermont Vaudeville will warm the cockles of even the coldest heart. “ 
-Town Hall Theater, Middlebury

“I appreciate your work on so many levels.”
- Rob Mermin, Founder of Circus Smirkus
