Artist Spotlight: Flower City Vaudeville

Flower City Vaudeville features the prodigious musical talents of Ward Hartenstein, the physical comedy skills of Richard Hughson, and the object manipulation artistry of Ted Baumhauer. The beautiful bygone days of variety entertainment are brought to life by Flower City Vaudeville's wide array of whimsical acts. They feature fun-filled entertainment for all ages. Flower City Vaudeville's fast-paced, energetic mix of comedy, juggling, old timey radio stories, musical interludes, and daring feats with whipped cream keeps their audiences on the edge of their seats. Manipulating props and audience is all part of the fun. "They don't do showbiz like this anymore!" (City Newspaper) “This family-friendly variety show is great fun and thoroughly entertaining.” (Ithaca Fringe Festival)
