Vermont Burlesque Festival’s Valentine’s Showcase
Valentine’s Day (February 14)
The Vermont Burlesque* Festival brings its gorgeous costumes, cheeky comedy and sexy magic to Town Hall Theater for a very special Valentine’s Day showcase.
Featured performer Scarlett James (pictured) has performed from Shanghai to Berlin and every great city in-between. She’s headlined three of the Vermont Burlesque Festival events over the past four years and produced the 8th annual Montreal Burlesque Festival. Scarlett’s burlesque style is classically beautiful with amazing costumes and props. To learn more about Scarlett, visit her website.
Also performing are the Green Mountain Cabaret Sugar Shakers who have been tantalizing and teasing Vermont and New England audiences since 2012. A little bit nerdy, a little bit classic, and a little bit neo, there’s something for everyone when the Shakers hit the stage. All are guaranteed to “Enjoy the view!”
Angelica Cardone is an American acrobat and aerialist who originally hails from northern NJ but currently calls Vermont her home. A graduate of the New England Center for Circus Arts Performance Training Program, she currently performs hand balancing, aerial net, and partner acrobatics. She’ll be performing amazing feats of contortion and balance.
Kicking off the evening is the Maple Street Six. The Maple Street Six is a high energy band with a big Soul-Jazz-Boogaloo sound. Players include David Marchant (vibes), Jon McBride (sax), Rob Church (guitar), Clarence Davis (congas), Micheal Graziadei (bass) and Dwight Richer (drums).
*Burlesque is a comic variety show featuring satire and scantily clad ladies with some theatrical touches, like costumes and music. Burlesque performers sometimes remove their clothing to music in an entertaining way, but no performers will appear entirely nude.
