If you had a time machine, a Vaudevillian doctor of ill repute, a couple of common bums, juggler, a belly dancer, singers, dancers, and plenty of whiskey, what would you do? You'd join the ladies and gent of Denton's own Minx Burlesque troupe, a classy cabaret of the vixens DeVile.

Biography

Once upon a time, there were Two Little Girls from Little Rock name Vita and Vanity DeVile. These girls had always sensed with some urgency that they were meant to be part of some greater family, and so they went in search of all other long-lost DeViles. Now, our heroines were indeed made mostly of sugar and spice, but spiced rum might be more of their true consistency. Their quest was bold, and they searched every speakeasy and dive in the civilized world to find their familial boon. While in the southern part of France, they met up with Violet, who was escaping her Protestant upbringing. And that's when things began to change.

Violet had known for some time of an mysterious and hermetic doctor of some fame, a certain Doctor Q, whose initial remains an enigma. Granted, his fame was not like that of other great men and he was said to have delved into some dark arts, one of them being Showbiz. And so the family seemed to grow, finding Vamp in a swamp in Transilvania where she had been taken to live for a time with traveling circus performers, but whose beauty and talent with numerous hand-held orbs had spread far across the land.

Veruca was reported to have been the up-and-coming Headmistress at a pretentiously important all-girl's school; she saw the troupe at one of their risque performances and never went back to work. Vulgar shocked the girls with her raunchy sense of humor over a few-too-many vodka tonics, and Vallhalla came aboard after a hurricane. We are unsure of her origins.

A few others have joined along the way: The Sisters, Sister Frederick of Hollywood and Sister Victoria of the Secret Order of the Divine Penetration of Our Virgin of Perpetual Abstinence. Arnie and Jimmy are two bums who wandered aboard during the famine of '99, and seem incapable of returning to an orderly and gentlemanly lifestyle as of yet. There are guests, occasionally, who grace us with their gifts: Mr. John Paul Slavens, a Miss Sarah Alexander, both of whom have played concerts in Grande New Yorke.

Are they sisters? Are they lovers? Are they legal? Decide for yourself at the show.
