Geekenders Presents: Weird Al Burlesque!
Called a "cult sensation" by Vancity Buzz and "Vancouver burlesque legends" by Bored in Vancouver, Geekenders Theatrical Burlesque returns with a loving tribute to the King of Parody... WEIRD AL YANKOVIC!
From Like a Surgeon to Amish Paradise, the Geekenders Solid Gold Dancers present a show that is ALL Weird Al, ALL THE TIME!
Featuring performances from some Geekenders favourites as well as some of Vancouver's biggest burlesque names, this show features weird wiles from:
With stage kittying by Shirley Gnome and Pinkie Pie, and hosting by Stephen Blakley!
Here's what the media has had to say about other Geekenders productions:
"...Absolutely hilarious. The Geekenders did a fabulous job with lovingly skewering the source material."
"...local impresarios Geekenders, who spare no imagination with their programming. A geek and queer-friendly collective that turns the nerdiest of fantasies into realities..."
"...Geekenders are taking the ropes and giving opportunities for females to be cast in non-traditional, male-dominated spaces. In doing so, they’re changing the fandom for the better while remaining true to its roots."
Tickets are $12 at the door, or $10 in advance through Rio Theatre Tickets
This show is likely to sell out - buy your tickets now! (Seriously!)
