Show and performer details:

Vixen Deville Revealed

British actress Cat LaCohie reveals the truth behind her Burlesque persona, “Vixen DeVille.” Using burlesque, comedy, and magic, she inspires the audience to celebrate their own inner Vixen - the good, the bad, and the wobbly!

Rosie Cerquone and Co.

Classically trained percussionist Rosie Cerquone never got over her wannabe pop star phase, so she created her own genre she calls “pop percussion.” Her intricate and honest melodies are presented through voice, vibraphone, drums, and electronics.

Beau & Aero

This award-winning show combines slapstick comedy with elements of clown, acrobatics, dance, mime, and puppetry into an enchanting form of physical comedy. This family-friendly show has been touring the globe since 2014, and is recommended for ages 6+.

What They Said About Sex

Steve Budd wondered what other people knew about sex that he didn’t. So he asked them! In this new show, Budd plays all the roles in a one-man show he based on real-life interviews with people about what happens between the sheets.

Songs of the Nearly Forgotten

In this one-woman story and song show, Katie Anne Mitchel explores themes of isolation, femininity, and finding your place in this world through conducting a seance. That’s right. A seance.

What They Said About Love

Steve Budd wondered why other people seem to be able to tie the knot, while he can’t. So he asked them! Budd plays all the roles in a one-man show he based on real-life interviews and his own search for a life partner.


This larger-than-life group of musicians and acrobats bring a spirit of celebration everywhere they go. With exceptional musical quality and a visual kaleidoscope of performers, MarchFourth is a spectacle of high energy, colorful costumes, and irresistible charisma.

Peter Antoniou

Direct from London’s West End and the current season of America’s Got Talent, “Psychic” comedian Peter Antoniou uses his unique skills of comedy and mind-reading to peer inside people’s heads and tickle their funny bones.

The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged) [Revised]

Fresh out of COVID lockdown, three enthusiastic, overachieving actors from Bag & Baggage Productions attempt to stage all 37 of Shakespeare’s plays in a mere 97 minutes. What could possibly go wrong?
