"Razor-sharp theatre group, Les Enfants Terribles" (The Telelgraph) invite you to The Empire music hall for a night you'll never forget. But tonight's show will be a little different as Charlie, the club's owner, has fallen victim to a murder most foul… but whodunnit? Could it be nervy knife thrower Ray the Blade; sexy Siamese Striplets, The Cerberus Sisters; deranged ventriloquist Albert Frog; macabre mime artist Gaston Gasteau; or perhaps the mystifying magician - The Great Mephisto…

Everyone's a suspect as we discover the secrets of all the weird and wonderful acts who have found themselves upon The Empire's bill.

A macabre musical of murder and music hall, The Vaudevillains is night not to forget! Think La Clique meets Moulin Rouge, meets Jerry Springer the Opera meets Sweeny Todd. From the team that brought you the multi-award winning 'The Terrible Infants' and 'Ernest and The Pale Moon' - Murder, mystery and mayhem combine with Les Enfants Terribles' dark, twisted wit and inventive theatricality as they present their brand new musical extravaganza.

Written by Oliver Lansley and Tomas Gisby, 'The Vaudevillains' is a unique and exciting night out.

'The company's eye-catching first foray into full-blown musical theatre.. Shades of Stephen Sondheim - or Chicago.' - THE SCOTSMAN

'Every moment was filled with laughs, wit and charm.. the production never ceased to amaze…the heady mix of old-school japery and genuine fun being had was addictively overwhelming.'- BRITISH THEATRE GUIDE *****

'An engaging storyline that combines elements of the macabre, humour, murder-mystery and a plethora of plot twists combine to create a production that is fitting for its grand stage"..truly exceptional.'- FEST *****
