Telluride Theatre presents Burlesque

3 Nights of Fun, 2 Totally Different Shows

Telluride Theatre first resurrected the concept of burlesque seven years ago, empowering a class of eleven women as they learned to shimmy, strut, strip and tease on stage. The fundraiser was an instant success, and every year the tradition repeats with a new class. "It has become a celebration of the feminine, a way for women in town to bond, have fun, and explore a different side of themselves," says director Sasha Sullivan. 

Burlesque includes three nights of performances:

  • Cheap Thrills is the culmination of the class, with each student showcasing their work, the character and piece they've created (as well as the pasties they made)
  • 2 Nights of Calendar Girls featuring the advanced veteran performers from the previous classes. This show is polished, sexy, and fun show that has been choreographed.

Ages 21+
