This weekend, the Carnival Of 5 Fires rolls on at Gallery 5 with Vaudeville Galore and Deanna Danger Productions' biggest show yet: Gypsies! Tramps! Thieves! a three-ring circus of burlesque, vaudeville, acrobatics, sideshow stunts, and so much more! This three-act production will feature all sorts of different attractions happening all around the venue. The main stage will feature original music and dance, burlesque performances, and high-flying aerial stunts. The side stage will be home to sideshow stunt performances of a wide variety, as well as busking performers and musical interludes. Then upstairs at the gallery, there'll be a special "hooch tent" with an old-fashioned burlesque peep show booth, plus plenty of interesting art for you to take a look at! Performers will include Deanna Danger, The Red Huntress, Cherry Von Bomb (NC), Maharal, Name Of The Rose, Professor Bless & The Dancing Madwoman, and The Hooch Tent Girls: Lottie Ellington, Storey De Ville, Sae Sae Marcette, Puppie Buffe, and their Barker, Miss Midnight! There will also be projections upstairs in the music lounge by Lord Candy Dish, plus raffle prizes, vendors, wandering carney-folk, and other amazing attractions! It's going to be a wonderland for the senses and perhaps a bit overwhelming, but once you get in the spirit, you're guaranteed to have a wonderful time! Costumes are encouraged, so join in the carnival madness and get all dolled up for a wild and amazing time at Gallery 5 this Friday night.
