Approx. 60 Minute Performance

Beloved children’s entertainer and master of all things wacky, Al Simmons celebrates his FIFTY Years of Musical Misadventures!

Al Simmons’ one-man, multi-prop, music-filled, off the wall performances have elevated audiences world-wide to collective giggles and all-out guffaws. At once childlike in its simplicity and sophisticated in its execution, Al’s humour touches a responsive chord in people of every age.

Vaudeville’s half-century run of popularity may have died back in the 1940’s, but don’t try to tell that to Al Simmons or the crowds of fans that have packed theatres across North America to see him. Into the tradition of the great comedy kings–Danny Kaye, Spike Jones and Jimmy Durante–comes Al Simmons, ­ a man dedicated to the all but lost art of combining comedy with song, dance, magic, and sight-gags. The end result is plenty of good-natured fun in a one-man variety show.

Come early to enjoy an instrument petting zoo hosted by the VSO’s Education department. The Instrument Fair allows kids to touch and play real orchestra instruments in the Orpheum lobby starting at 1pm. All instruments are generously provided by Tom Lee Music.
