The American Vaudeville Museum offers touring programs about Vaudeville and other performing arts of the 19th and 20th Centuries. Each topic requires a minimum of two hours and can be expanded to half-days, full days and sequential session courses. We are happy to work with you to tailor programs to the specific needs of your organization, audience or students.

A VCR player and large screen television or a video projector and screen are required for all programs.  Larger halls may require a sound system.
