Swaggering tennis clowns, loquacious cowboys, helium-high burlesque -- they're all part of the outrageous fun of The Big Time, 1812 Productions' new high-energy holiday vaudeville show that brings the steamer trunk circuit into the 21st century. From a bus stop in 1950s America where the foley has a mind of its own, to a pantomimed prom in the 1920s, to Buster Keaton-style mayhem at a modern-day Italian bakery, this hilarious, fast-paced show pay loving homage a variety of different comedic forms, with nods to classic acts like Gallagher & Shean, Burns & Allen, the Smothers Brothers and more. It all combines into one fun theatrical show that recreates the magic and spirit of the golden age of vaudeville. Learn More

About the Ticket Supplier: Plays & Players
Plays & Players began in 1911 as a social club devoted to expanding and developing new theater experiences for and by its membership. The first President, Maud Durbin Skinner, was the wife of the famed American actor Otis Skinner. The Plays & Players Theatre, then called the "Little Theatre of Philadelphia," first opened its doors in 1913. The theatre wes founded by Beulah E. Jay and her husband Edward G. Jay, Jr. with acquaintance F.H. Shelton in an effort to produce "American plays of ideas," an underrepresented genre at the time. During its 100 years of performing, Plays & Players theater company has produced innumerable notable performances -- some of the most noteworthy being the world premiere of the acclaimed Broadway play Stalag 17 in 1949, and a childhood performance by actor Kevin Bacon in Member of the Wedding in 1974. The first season of Plays & Players included An Ideal Husband by Oscar Wilde and The Learned Ladies by Moliere, both still popular plays today.
