The Beggars New Years Ball!

From the producers that bring you the largest burlesque, vaudeville, and variety productions in St. Louis, comes a New Year’s Eve party like no other!

Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls of legal age, step right up to the sexiest, strangest, wildest show on earth!

A gypsy carnival, a one-ring circus, a villainous vaudeville, a bawdy bordello, a manic music hall, and an unforgettable night of entertainment await you!

After 2 years of sold out shows at the beautiful and historic Casa Loma Ballroom, one of the largest New Year’s Eve celebrations in St. Louis, and taking their hit show all over the country, The Beggars are thrilled to take all the best elements of their show, lovingly described as “Cirque du Soleil on a whiskey bender,” and turn it into the most exciting New Year’s Party in the city for the second year in a row.  Starring Lola van Ella; Sammich the Tramp; The Stage Door Johnnies; Jeez Loueez; Lady Jack; Lula Houp Garou; The Hoochie Coochie Girls; all their favorite Beggars; many out of town special guest burlesque artists, aerialists and more; plus house band The Royal We!

Fans of The Beggar’s Carnivale will be amazed by the largest and most lavish spectacle The Beggar’s have attempted yet. A non-stop frenzy of all-encompassing, sensory-overloading, interactive event featuring some of our most beloved acts, wild routines, and an overwhelming sextacular of circus mayhem.

VanElla Productions and Sammich the Tramp proudly present

This very gothic and dark installment of The Beggar’s Carnivale takes its inspiration from one of America’s greatest writers, Edgar Allen Poe.  Something insidious is afoot, as the guests, some of the popular characters from some of Poe’s most recognizable tales, are taken hold by Death’s cold grip while staying at the beautiful hotel, The House of Usher.  Can the Knockabouts solve the case before they become victims too?

Witness all the thrills, chills and spills you’ve come to love, in addition to a dark and dangerous beauty never before seen at the Beggar’s Carnivale. Whether you are a Poe expert or know very little of his literary works, Nevermore will be a show you remember till death do you part!
