Larrikin Entertainment and The Yukon Arts Centre - in association with Atomic Vaudeville - proudly present North of The Sixtieth Parallel - A Zeitgeist Cabaret. More easily described by what it might NOT be - variety show, sketch comedy, burlesque, musical theatre (yet the show steals from each of these and more) - this Cabaret is a collective labour of love that pushes theatre kicking and screaming into the future by fusing the common and secret joy of coarse amusement with a conscious desire to engage in a thoughtful dialogue about our uneasy connected existence as people in a community. Think Monty Python meets the Muppet Show. Think spectacular song and dance numbers. Think…actually, try not to think too much at all.
Hot on the heels of their 80th Cabaret in Victoria, and their runaway success with the musicals Ride The Cyclone and Legoland, Atomic Vaudeville are joining forces with Larrikin Entertainment (The Syringa Tree, Often I Find That I Am Naked) and a plethora of local performers to present a whacky, zany, off-the-wall collage of theatrical insanity, singing, dancing, satire, stand-up-sit-down-roll-around comedic relief in which Yukon audiences can indulge at the end of a long, dark winter.
