Romantasy Cabaret ~ August 24th
Romantasy Cabaret: A Naughty Lil Vaudeville has embarked upon their seventh season in the Valley in 2013.
Romantasy Cabaret has been lauded as a "veritable buffet of naughty pleasures" by Arizona Reporter. Since 2007 this bawdy and beautiful show has received such awards as Phoenix New Times Best of Phoenix award for Best Vaudeville Entertainment, runner up for Best Local Performing Art Troupe by East Valley Tribune in 2011, and Best Performance Troupe by City of Tempe for 2012. VaVaVoom, the showgirls of Romantasy Cabaret, won 2nd place for Best Performance, Group/Duo Category at the Albuquerque Burlesque and Sideshow Spectacular in 2012.
Each Romantasy Cabaret show blends dazzling cabaret with saucy songstresses, vaudeville variety with low brow comedy skits and impressive dance ensembles with sexy burlesque. The show features vibrant stage lighting, powerful music selections, impressive costumes and an engaging, yet bawdy emcee, the show's creator- Mizz Lucy Morals.
The August 24 show celebrates Mizz Morals' birthday with a sinful circus and sideshow to-do. Attendees are encouraged to get into the act by dressing in circus-sideshow-carnival attire with bold colors, fun costumes and silly hats.
Every show promises an upbeat, festive and celebratory event for adults 21 and older to enjoy. Audience members often arrive dressed in by-gone era clothing, retro-party frocks, festive hats, colorful wigs, and other fun attire. They enjoy being as much a part of the affair as the cast and crew themselves. In fact, some show numbers even include willing audience members.
The shows are held at Club Red at 2155 East University Drive in Tempe. The doors open for eager fans at 7:30pm and the curtain rises at 8:30pm. Romantasy Cabaret creates the mood of an old fashioned burlesque show by adding table cloths, candles and party favors to the VIP and reserved seating areas. Every seat is a good seat at Club Red. The venue's stage is large and raised, insuring that everyone has a good view of some of Phoenix's silliest and sexiest performers.
While Club Red does not offer a full menu, the show will have Chi Chi's Tacos onsite again, selling delicious plates of good, fast food and featuring their Sweet Potato Taco. Bring cash for some gourmet foodcart eats.
Raffle tickets are sold at Romantasy Cabaret shows to benefit the cast's favorite charities. Raffle prizes include jewelry, Romantasy Cabaret memorabilia, free dance classes, pole fitness classes, music CDs, concert tickets, hair accessories from Torture Couture, creations by local artisans and treats from local sponsors.
Romantasy Cabaret urges advance purchase of tickets as shows do sell out.
