Vaudeville Returns to Frederick

September 23, 2011

The days of Vaudeville are back in Frederick, at least for one night.  After sell-out crowds for Moonshine Cabaret, a different vaudeville evening is planned at the Cultural Arts Center, located in downtown Frederick.  On Saturday, September 24th, Twisted Knickers Troupe will present “Some Like it Hotter: A Tribute to the Silver Screen.”  The evening will be full of comedy, vaudeville, and Hollywood Glamour. 

In Frederick for one night only, the Twisted Knickers will be putting on a legendary tribute to the silver screen in Some Like it Hotter. Tapitha Kix and Stella Sweet will duel it out in a hilarious tap-dancing tribute to Deliverance. You’ll not be able to forget BeauJolais NouVeau’s rendition of Mrs. Robinson or Spanky Roundbottom’s caricature of Catwoman. And who could forget MC Hot Todd Lincoln whose jokes leave you giggling long after you’ve left the show. 

The Twisted Knickers have performed in Alaska, Hawaii, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia, and D.C., bringing their brand of crazy to the stage wherever they go. Some Like it Hotter is a throwback to the days of vaudeville, complete with tasteless humor, crazy costumes, and a cast that will leave you in stitches.  The Knickers promise to take out the tarnished Silver Screen and give it a good buffing! 


The world “Vaudeville” is French for Variety and is commonly known as a series of separate, unrelated acts featuring different types of performance.  Vaudeville shows were extremely popular before the invention of television and radio, but have seen a resurgence over the past few years.


Tickets are $10 per person.  The performance begins at 8:00 p.m.  The cash bar and doors open at 7:00 p.m.  For tickets, or more information, call 301-662-4190.
