Vaude in the Ville swan­song

Townsville Bulletin - - NEWS - VIC­TO­RIA NU­GENT

A MINIA­TURE vaudeville fes­ti­val will bring mu­sic, dance and cre­ativ­ity to the CBD tonight.

Vaude in the Ville is a vaudeville mas­quer­ade ball to mark the end of an era for one seven- piece band. Band of Dawn front­woman Kim­ber­ley Dawn Lysons is mov­ing south and the event marks her last show in Townsville.

Ms Lysons said they would fit a va­ri­ety of acts into the evening and they en­cour­aged peo­ple to come dressed in cos­tume.

“We want ev­ery­one’s cre­ativ­ity to run wild with that theme,” she said. “Cir­cus, bur­lesque, steam­punk, mad- hat­ter, gypsy ... any­thing goes.”

The evening will in­clude mu­sic, dance per­for­mances, aerial silks, body paint­ing and even fire twirling.

Ms Lyson said she was mov­ing to fo­cus on her health and write and record new mu­sic.

“The hard­est thing about leav­ing Townsville was say­ing good­bye to my beau­ti­ful mu­sic stu­dents at Townsville Gram­mar,” she said.

“I have been so lucky to teach such in­cred­i­ble lit­tle peo­ple over the past few years of be­ing back in my home­town. I left all of my stu­dents with a prom­ise though — that I will write and ded­i­cate a song to them on my next al­bum.”

Vaude in the Ville will be held at the Old Court­house The­atre on Sturt St from 6.30pm. The en­try fee is $ 10.
