UMW Fine Arts Show “The Knickerbockers’ Theater of Titillation and Talent” A Hidden Gem

Yesterday (05/04/2022) the UMW Fine Arts held a small vaudeville and variety show in the small auditorium. The show featured eight variety acts. The students and those involved in this show should be proud of what they accomplished. The show was a gem of entertainment that kept the audience engaged and laughing throughout.

From the very first skit called Box and Cox that pitted two gentlemen against one another who found out they both rented the same room. To the Invisible Man who finds it fun to haunt those distinguished gentlemen waiting for a train. Laugh as you are taken along on a journey learning what is good is bad, tell it all comes together. Experience what it was like to be at the Medieval Help desk and guide people through the use of a book. The hilarity of being a Headmaster who has to break it to a boy's father that you beat his kid to death. Learning just how tough someone is, tells them they need to prove themselves and the liquor has worn off. The musical of I Didn't Know The Gun Was Loaded, and last but not least the hilarious Fantastic Flame-O.

Sadly this was only a one showing play and your only chance to catch it was Wednesday afternoon, but I would highly encourage anyone who is looking for some great entertainment to keep watching for upcoming plays through the UMW Fine Arts Department, they truly are a hidden gem in our community.
