Vaudeville Variety Show
On September 26, 2015, the Pawnee City Historical Museum will hold a Vaudeville/Variety Show at the Pawnee City Public School Auditorium to help raise money for the site.
“We are looking for adults who would like to be a part of the show,” stated Rita Shaw, one of the organizers. According to Rita, “If you have talent or think you have talent, then we are looking for you! Our goal is to make the Show a cross between Vaudeville and a Variety Show ala Carol Burnette. We are looking for family-oriented singers, dancers, comedians, magicians, jugglers, storytellers, and short comedic skits (Abbott and Costello/Burns and Allen). We will have a sign-up sheet for anyone interested in performing.”
"We are hoping to sign up enough acts to possibly get two shows, one on Saturday (September 26th) and one on Sunday (September 27th) both at 2:00PM. We have discussed a few ideas for the Museum Volunteers to also participate in, such as a junkyard band, and short skits to entertain the audience. Rita and I have a few ideas we are kicking around to spoof ourselves that we think are pretty funny” said Vickie Wiers. “We are contacting area colleges, churches, and local organizations to get a good variety of acts. You don’t have to be a professional just entertaining."
We are very fortunate that the School has allowed us to use the auditorium for the Vaudeville/Variety Show. This allows the audience easy access and comfortable seating to watch the performance, and give our acts a great venue to perform at. The auditorium has a sound system, but the acts will have to provide their own music.
