On Saturday 9 June for one night only An Evening of Burlesque comes to the The- atre Severn at Shrewsbury. Direct from London’s

West End, the UK’s first and only touring burlesque show is coming to town.

Showcasing award-win- ning talent from across the country, it’s an opportunity to see some of the world’s biggest burlesque stars in the flesh.

Theatregoers are prom- ised corsets, killer heels and stockings aplenty. “An Even- ing of Burlesque features an all-star cast of beautiful and elegant performers,” says show producer Michael Taylor.

Wellington News is giving away two pairs of tickets to An Evening of Burlesque at the Theatre Severn



“Sparkling with couture costumes recalling the gold- en eras of burlesque, it’s the most glamorous show on tour.”

Michael, who produces other hit stage shows The Magic of Motown and Thank You for the Music, says the production owes its success to a combination of “sultry vocals, breathtaking chore- ography, mischief, magic, frivolity and fun.”

“It’s all tease, no sleaze,” says Michael, “and for that reason audiences are pre- dominantly female.”

Bringing variety back to the theatre, the show’s combination of musical and theatrical parody, magic,

comedy and dance with the art of striptease saw its ex- tensive 2011 UK tour enjoy rave reviews. An Evening of Burlesque comes to Shrewsbury fresh from an international tour at the beginning of 2012. “It’s content – sparkling

glamour, physical humour and a dynamic score need no translation,” says Mi- chael. “There’s a thriving burlesque scene in London’s West End. We’re proud to be bringing the cream of bur- lesque talent to a far wider audience.”
