Description

The Alex Film Society opens its 13th season with the seventh annual Vaudeville Extravaganza! at Glendale’s historic Alex Theatre. The most anticipated family event held annually at the grand theatre, the show is a “hurricane of fun and frolic” paying tribute to the Alex’s vaudeville roots. The one-night-only event is an eclectic mix of the sort of variety acts that made vaudeville so beloved by a generation of fans.

Opening the show will be

America’s enchanting ukelele chanteuse Janet Klein and her Parlor Boys

playing nostalgic music from the vaudeville era.

Then, live on stage will be:

Who’s On First?

Davis & Faversham’s Tribute to Abbott & Costello

Jovial Jaunty Juggling

Beejay Joyer’s Masterful Manual Manipulations

Maestro of the Glass Harmonica

Michael Grenier, Creator of Crystal Melodies

From Bulgaria!

Stoil and Ekaterina, Masters of Magical Transformations

True to the vaudeville genre, the evening concludes on the big screen with a Walter Lantz cartoon Broadway Bow Wow’s, Charlie Chaplin’s 1916 comedy classic One A.M. starring the loveable tramp and to close, Buster Keaton in Pardon My Berth Marks.
