A Tour of the King's Grand Apartments
Welcome to the glittering Palace of Versailles on the starlit night of February 25, 1745. King Louis XV of France is hosting a lavish ball to honor the marriage of his eldest son. Anyone may attend, as long as they are costumed and masked!
The State Rooms are abuzz with rumors that the handsome and virile king, bored with his Polish-born queen, hopes to meet his next royal mistress—an official, and powerful, position within the Bourbon court. Among the revelers vying for the opportunity is a huntress in disguise, a beautiful commoner named Jeanne Antoinette Poisson. Is this the night her life will change forever or will she be foiled by her rivals?
Step Inside the Story of the famous Yew Tree Ball, and accompany our “Goddess Diana” through the sumptuous rooms of the King’s Grand Apartments as she searches for the greatest prize of all—the heart of a king—on BARDEUM’S glamorous adventure of Decadence and Diversions.

A Tour of the Queen's Suite
It’s October 5, 1789. For months France has been in a state of tension. In June, the citizens formed a National Assembly; and on July 14, the Bastille Prison was stormed. There have been uprisings demanding Liberty, Equality, and Fraternity.
France’s despised queen, Marie Antoinette, has just learned that a ragtag army of Paris fishwives is on the march toward Versailles, slogging through a drenching downpour. Word has spread that they are coming to demand bread from the king, Louis XVI; yet they are armed with pikes, pitchforks, and scythes. Is something much more sinister afoot?
The panicked courtiers fear for their lives. Stay—or flee? As Marie Antoinette tries to calm the court, surveying the rooms of the Queen’s Suite and searching for her husband, the tension rises and the hours inexorably tick by. Step Inside the Story of BARDEUM’s Revolution Comes to Versailles and follow the true events of the French royal family’s final hours there.
