Carol Burnett Skits – April 5-7 and 12-14, 2019

From 1967 through 1978, one of the great staples of American television was the Carol Burnett Show, a sketch comedy/variety show that every week gave its audience the gifts of laughter and beautiful music/dancing. The talented regular cast and the never-ending array of guest stars kept the show entertaining and inspiring. Vermillion Players is happy to present a collection of selected sketches direct from the TV show, featuring some of Carol’s most famous characters. A mix of clever dialogue and outlandish slapstic, our two-act production will be sure to put a laugh in your voice and a smile on your face. We’ll even include a couple of musical numbers, just like Carol did. This will be a night of fun and nostalgia that you won’t want to miss.
