Conducted with a traditional Vaudeville format - a series of unrelated acts following in rapid succession - the Lord Franzzanian show is a huge local Olympia 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.
Everyone is welcome to participate. All types of stage acts are encouraged, from the traditional to the modern bizarre. Humorous and/or clever acts are a plus. Dance, song, puppetry, skits, acrobats, comedy, burlesque, mime, anything goes. Now is your chance to be a Vaudeville performer or just look like one! Begin developing your act now!
Elizabeth Lord created the Lord Franzannian Royal Olympian Spectacular Vaudeville Show in 2007 when she saw a desire for quick, short, one-act, entertainment in the Olympia theater/performance world.
