Moulin Rouge
French Theme Entertainment



As guests arrive they will be greeted by Toulouse Lautrec the famous French artist and other Characters that you would see hang out at the Moulin Rouge; Can-Can Girls, high society types and maybe a wisecracking street walker (ala Irma LaDuce) After dinner we would return to do the show outlined below.The show with a minimum cast of six and a stage manager consists of the following:

Four dancers performing three numbers plus a French Chanteuse performing songs in French and Songs in English about France and a comedic pantomimist performing classic French pantomimes.
THE DANCE NUMBERS:
Voilà Paris (Folies-Bergère number)
Leggy showgirls perform a high-stepping routine to a medley of well known French tunes ending with a kick line to "Milord." Choreographed with elements of classical ballet and costumed with oodles of sequins and feathers.
Thank Heaven For Little Girls
(from GiGi with Toulouse Lautrec and the girls)
The Voila Paris dancers remain onstage to pose and smile as they are joined by Toulouse-Lautrec who sings this happy song made famous by Maurice Chevalier. Very lovely and very French.
Classic French CAN CAN
We have a traditional all female high-energy French Can-Can with all the trimmings! The music consists of selections from Jacques Offenbach's Gaite Parisienne, climaxing with the familiar kick-line to the rousing finale of Orpheus in the Underworld. The costumes are a vibrant purple or pink with black polka dots sprinkled with rhinestones for flash. The dancers wear full circle black satin skirts with voluminous bright ruffled petticoats. Fishnet stockings along with old fashioned bloomers are displayed underneath. High bonnets and mutton chop sleeves complete the look of the Moulin Rouge. (Premium Can Can costumes pictured above.)
