Victorian vaudeville revived

Love rollicking musical comedy? Giggle your knickers off at Monty Python, The Goodies and Benny Hill? Step back in time and let Old Time Music Hall transport you to the bedazzling song and supper rooms of the 1830s.
Love rollicking musical comedy? Giggle your knickers off at Monty Python, The Goodies and Benny Hill?

Step back in time and let Old Time Music Hall transport you to the bedazzling song and supper rooms of the 1830s.

For more than a century, Music Hall entertained people from all walks of life with a vaudevillian mix of comic capers and songs. Joy, sentimentality, innuendo, and social comment all had a place in the magical, gas-lit atmosphere of Music Hall.

Following 20 years of ever-evolving WA tours, this special performance brings tinsel-tonsiled Pristine Entertainment troupe members east for their Melbourne debut.

Featuring Ian Toyne, Chris Fillis, Vincent Hooper, Ben Clarke, Rob Pring, Madeline Crofts, Kim Moore and Suzanne Barton.
