Five Reasons to See... The Vaudevillains

WhatsOnStage logo
1. One night only!

Les Enfants Terribles will take over the Pleasance Dome and turn it into The Empire Music Hall just once during the whole festival: you've only got one shot.

2. Catch two other Les Enfants Terribles productions this Festival

Two of our previous shows The Terrible Infants and Ernest and the Pale Moon will also be at this year's Festival, playing in the final week at the Pleasance Grand. Both shows started in Edinburgh and have gone on to great critical and commercial success as well as international tours. This is your chance to see the dark and deliciously twisted musical extravaganza The Vaudevillains before everyone else catches on.

3. Three sexy singing Siamese striplets

The Cerberus Sisters are just three in a range of weird and wonderful characters; a range including knife-throwers, psychotic ventriloquists, macabre mimes, mystifying magicians and more. All of them are suspected of the murder of the Empire Music Hall's proud owner Charlie... but whodunit?

4. Party ‘til 4 am

After the performance our band will play on late into the night as we host the party of the Festival! Drink, dance and dress to impress as you mingle with the bizarre and beautiful acts of the Empire – and the show is on a Monday night (16 August), so you’ll be right as rain by the weekend! Party tickets are separate from show tickets and are available through the box office.

5. 5 stars...

Our last two shows received great reviews, with the Evening Standard calling The Terrible Infants a “beautifully realised slice of vaudevillian puppet theatre”. See what you think to this one.

Les Enfants Terribles Theatre Company present The Vaudevillains at the Pleasance Dome, Palm Court (Venue 33) on 16 August only.
