Lord Franzannian's Royal Olympian Spectacular Vaudeville Show
Conducted with a traditional Vaudeville format - a series of unrelated acts following in rapid succession - the Lord Franzzanian show is a huge local favorite. It gives performers of all types an opportunity to try out a new acts and new talents, and gives audience members an oppurtunity to enjoy live, sometimes experimental, and often extremely funny entertainment. Read about the history of BigShowCity and the origins of the vaudeville show here.
