Bob Parkhurst is with us to talk about Corn Stock Theatre's "Vaudeville and Whiskey Revue." The show is an homage to Peoria's vaudeville history. It includes 38 different acts in the classic Vaudeville tradition -- solos and ensemble pieces, skits, tap numbers, and even a magic act. The show is also a nod to Peoria's whiskey tradition; each performance includes optional whiskey tastings.
Parkhusrt talks about the inspirations behind the production, the work that went into rehearsing 38 different acts, and the backstage logistics that keep the show moving.
The "Vaudeville and Whiskey Revue" continues tonight and tomorrow night at the Corn Stock Winter Playhouse, in Upper Bradley Park in Peoria.
