If you’re of a certain age you may remember vaudeville. And if you’re of another age, you might well ask, What the heck is that?
Vaudeville was very popular in the United States and Canada from the early 1880s to the early 1930s. It was what people enjoyed before movies, television, DVDs, Netflix and iPhones. It was live entertainment. It was fun. It was screwy. It was downright silly. Most of all it was entertaining
Vaudeville was the whole enchilada — comedians, dancers, magicians, trained animals, acrobats, singer, jugglers — anything and everything might appear on the theater stage right before your eyes.
And guess what? Vaudeville is alive and well in Ajo!
