The Vaudevillains plus Cabaret

Expect murder, mystery and mayhem as you are invited to The Empire Music Hall for a night you’ll never forget. Charlie the owner is dead – but whodunnit?

Could it be nervy knife thrower Ray the Blade; sexy Siamese Striplets; The Cerberus Sisters; deranged ventriloquist Albert Frog; macabre mime artist Gaston Gasteau; or perhaps the mystifying magician – The Great Mephisto…

Everyone’s a suspect as we discover the secrets of all the weird and wonderful acts who have found themselves upon The Empire’s bill.

From the team that brought you the multi-award winning ‘The Terrible Infants’ and ‘Ernest and The Pale Moon’ - Murder, mystery and mayhem combine with Les Enfants Terribles’ dark, twisted wit and inventive theatricality as they present their brand new musical extravaganza.

On Friday night join the party as the Empire’s doors stay open after the show and the band plays on into the night allowing it’s guest to mingle and be entertained by additional cabaret and burlesque acts from the Empire’s bill...

Suitable for ages 14+.
