Billing itself as Britain’s biggest burlesque extravaganza, An Evening Of Burlesque turns festive for a night at the Theatre Royal, Brighton, on Saturday, December 14 (0844 871 7650).
Show producer Michael Taylor said: “An all-new cast has been assembled, comprising of the cream of British burlesque performers.
“You are invited to enjoy an all-new riotous romp into the bizarre world of burlesque and cutting-edge variety. Sashaying Royal Academy-trained burlesque bombshells are promised, slipping into exotic character as smoothly as they slip out of the most exotic couture costumes ever to grace the stage,” says Michael.
Themes featured include evocative Arabian Nights, fan-dancing fantasies, foxy 40s WAF sirens, bubblegum-blowing baseball babes and cheesecake pin-ups.
“Promising to be all tease, no sleaze, An Evening of Burlesque is for over-18s only.
“It’s the slickest, wickedly-wittiest, most delightfully-choreographed cabaret spectacular of the year,” says Michael.
“Audiences are predominantly female, attracting auditoriums full of people dressed in burlesque-inspired outfits. Prepare for the ultimate in glamorous nights out. On stage, dance, comedy, mischief, music, magic, frivolity and fun collide – so dress up and come to the cabaret.”
Stars of An Evening of Burlesque include:
l The Folly Mixtures – a burlesque quartet choreographed to thrill, featuring a tasty assortment of themed routines that have thrilled fans throughout the UK and Europe.
l Miss Ooh La Lou – described as Police Academy dream babe, a bit Britney, a bit Goldie Hawn. Trained at Italia Conti, she has appeared in numerous West End musicals.
l Miss Felixy Splits – another product of Italia Conti, the all-singing, all-dancing performer is billed as the ultimate cheesecake pin-up.
l Bettsie Bon Bon – a one-time Lloyds underwriter with a law degree, she trained in hip hop and street dance.
l Liberty Sweet – sensuous and graceful, a nimble vamp, trained at the Royal Academy of Dance.
l Chloe Hula Girl – her show-stealing hula-hoop performances defy the laws of gravity, leaving audiences in an old-school vaudeville spin.
