World Premiere

Welcome to Burlesque! The iconic 2010 film is shimmying from the screen to the stage in this brand-new musical adaption from original screenwriter Steve Atin. Set in a struggling Las Vegas burlesque lounge at the mercy of big-shot developers, the titular Burlesque is a titillating tale of rivalries, relationships, and revelry as witnessed by Sin City newbie Ali. With her own dreams of stardom propelling her forward, can her talents help to keep the club afloat?

Featuring songs from the movie's star Christina Aguilera (who also executive produces), SIA and Dianne Warren, plus a creative team that includes direction and choreography from Nick Winston, it's time to dig out your stockings and feather boas and show a little more for this exciting world premiere production! Starring Jackie Burns as Tess and Jess Folley as Ali, this is one you don't want to miss!
