GERALDTON is set to sizzle when national and local performers take to the stage on July 4 to kick off the regional part of the fourth Perth International Burlesque Festival.
Presented by Sugar Blue Burlesque, the Roadshow is in Geraldton for the second time, previewing the popular burlesque festival held in various venues around Perth and regional areas from July4-19.
The one-off show at Queens Park Theatre will feature the seductive talents of home-grown artists such as Sugar Du Joure, Ginger Rabbit, Coco Poppin, A’dora Derriere, as well as Geraldton’s own House of Jezzebelles.
Hosted by MC Famous Sharron, patrons will enjoy a spectacular and titillating evening of laughter, games and burlesque antics that will make their eyes pop and their jaws ache with laughter.
Rounding out the roadshow event will be a half-day of burlesque workshops at GeraldtonSenior College earlier the same day.
Festival co-producer Melanie Piantoni said the festival was one of the most anticipated events in the Australian Burlesque calendar.
“Now in its fourth year, performers and audiences have seen this exciting event grow in popularity, and they know they will see some of the world’s best burlesque artists in action as well as have the opportunity to do unique workshops with them.
“Audiences will experience burlesque performance in styles that vary greatly and fantastically across nations, scenes, and personalities, as well as engaging with the local burlesque scene.
“Above all, it’s a celebration of the local burlesque community because it opens doors for artists, allowing them to realise their uniqueness on the international scene.”
Doors open for the Geraldton Roadshow at 7.30pm for an 8pm start.
Roadshow tickets cost $55 general admission, $52 concession/seniors, $45 groups of 6+ and $50 QPT Club Members.
