Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn't before!
"Maybe Christmas," he thought, "doesn't come from a store.
"Maybe Christmas...perhaps...means a little bit more!"

Pandora's Trunk announces Success in all endeavors!!

Last night Pandora's Trunk presented Visual Vaudeville & Built Burlesque at Brava Theater Center to resounding cheers, thunderous applause, and the clickety flash of cameras. Hooray!

Kyle Hailey (wetribe.com) wins the prize for super speedy photographer guy of the evening. Here is a photo that he took of Bad Unkl Sista performing the beautiful dream sequence. You can see more of his photos of our show here. Updates coming soon on dates for our cabaret series at Climate Theater this spring, Feb-March-April. Clowns in April!!

Visual Vaudeville December 4th 6-11pm

Coming up this Thursday is the biggest, baddest show ever produced by Pandora's Trunk! We're doing a full runway show with live music in a gorgeous space, with a theatrical twist - the designs and models will tell a narrative story! We debuted this compelling format in cabaret style at Climate Theater to great success, and are excited to bring the show to the next level. Check out the ever-changing Conspirators page on our website to get a glimpse of some of the artists that you will be able to meet on Thursday.

Storytime Runway Show
Holiday Design & Craft Sale
Live Music and Entertainment


Pandora is taking over this enormously gorgeous vaudeville theater and filling it with built burlesque - the freshest indie craft and design will be presented by its makers in the historic lobby. The beautifully restored theater itself will be a house of performance delights, with live music acts opening for an innovative narrative fashion presentation: a storytime runway show at 8 & 10 pm.
Pandora is bringing you a fashion show turned on its head, a costumed storytime in high style. Drag performers and captured princesses mix with bad banker men and jeweled birds, set to viola and saw music. Check out a fully produced stage show, performed to live music, and meet and greet with the clothing and costume geniuses behind it all. Buy the fashions that you see onstage off the rack, fresh from each designer's hot little hands.
Fashion designers in the floor show will include local design & performance powerhouses Bad Unkl Sista, Miss Velvet Cream, Medium Reality, Ghetto Goldilocks, and many more!! Wine by Patz & Hall, beer by Lagunitas.
