Vaudeville Galore have been presenting quite the cavalcade of live performing arts showcases at Gallery 5 in recent months, featuring everything from burlesque to acrobatics to sideshow-freak craziness. This weekend, in conjunction with Buster's Haunted Stage Shows, they'll be bringing a combination of the three, plus even more wild things for us to check out!

Ladies and Gentlemen... have we got a show for you! Buster’s Haunted Stage Shows and Vaudeville Galore have come together to bring you a CIRCUS of mythical proportions. A CIRCUS so spectacular that is defies time itself. Come and witness what happens when the dark and magical play with the bright and enchanting. This is a a spectacle that's only fit to be called: The Daytime Nighttime Circus!
The twins--Parker Galore and Buster Britches--have never quite seen eye to eye on the subject of subjectivity, but they've been attached hip-to-hip since birth. You see the twins are conjoined, and trying to go their separate ways is quite impossible. However, with minimal blood shed, they've worked together to bring you the elegant and the weird for June 23rd. It's up to you to come and find out whether or not they kill each other by the end of the show!
Washington, DC's Clown Cabaret
That's right, it'll be a show within a show, with every performance and attraction taking on hidden layers of meaning as you watch the whole conjoined-twins subplot play out in real time. Sounds entertaining, right? Well, that's not all that's going on--not by a long shot. You can also look forward to burlesque performances from Deanna Danger, Karma Jane, and Cherrie Canary; Washington DC's Clown Cabaret, featuring Rich Potter, Karen Beriss, and Matthew Pauli; plus special guest Doc Volz and his Amazing Flea Circus!
It's all happening this Saturday night, June 23, at Gallery 5 (200 W. Marshall St.), starting at 8 PM. Tickets are $15 at the door, but they're only $10 in advance, so it pays to pick yours up now!
