Victorian Music Hall

Cabaret Puppet Theatre presented yesterday a most sparkling production that paid tribute to all the colour, spectacle and fun of the Victorian Musical Hall.

A cavalcade of spectacular new characters in their most superb finery and glittering jewellery provided wonderful entertainment. Our menfolk dusted off their top hats, white ties and tails to be most suitably turned out for the occasion. There were champagne corks popping with a lot of fizz, fizz, fizz as Champagne Charlie performed his famous song! Our beautiful divas were delightful down at the Old Bull and Bush along with our cockney Pearly King and Queen. Queen Victoria was most definitely highly amused by our most talented company.
