THREE Gazette staff and their partners and friends have booked for the Expose Burlesque and Variety Night this Saturday, June 3 at Richmond School of Arts - and are looking forward to it greatly.
Organiser Rachel Szabo is delighted that more than half the tickets have been sold online already before door sales, so is confident of a good crowd on the night.
A good friend of hers who made her burlesque debut last week at the Burlesque in Hand night at Glebe did so well, she has been put on the program.
“Ginger Little is a last-minute addition to the program,” Ms Szabo said. “She slayed it at Glebe!”
When asked what Ginger’s act involved she said “bored housewife! It’s very raunchy.” Ginger will be part of the finale.
As Ms Szabo explained in the Gazette’s original story, burlesque is “more than just stripping”.
“There’s thought around it, sometimes comedy. It’s a parody! It’s feminine, it’s light-hearted, it’s all about not taking yourself too seriously. It’s really fun.”
Canapes and finger food will be served and a bar will be open.
