VIDEO: Vaudeville variety show in Errington kicks off

Raunchy comedy, impressive singing, sultry dances and more feature in show

It was a fun combo of howling laughter and reverent applause at the first night of the 2018 A Night at the Palace Vaudeville and Burlesque show at Errington hall on Friday, Feb. 16.

Performers showed off their dirty-minded comedy side, their impressive singing and dancing talent, and sometimes both in the variety show that featured acts like the can-can, a stirring vocal performance of At Last, sultry duets, raunchy physical comedy and a woman power piece inspired by Rosie the Riveter.

Further performances of A Night at the Palace are on Feb. 23 and 24.
