ABOUT THE SHOW

SHIMMERY BURLESQUE RETURNS TO THE SPOTLIGHT WITH THEIR SPARKLING FIVE STAR PRODUCTION.

Burlesque Melbourne by Shimmery Couture

A first of its kind! Shimmery is a groundbreaking Burlesque stage show that follows the life of Lady Shimmery, a dressmaker who becomes immersed in costuming for Burlesque.

Throughout the entire show, captivating Burlesque numbers unfold, seamlessly weaving into the fabric of Lady Shimmery's narrative. The show begins in Lady Shimmery's workroom, inspired by the romance of old-fashioned dressing rooms, adorned with sewing machines and mirrors. A cast of twenty glisten with rhinestones, feathers and tassels!

 

Audiences are then transported to the city of Paris, where timeless gardens, parasols, park benches, painters and French Cabaret provide the glamorous backdrop for the story of how Lady Shimmery fell in love with the art of tease.

Written and Directed by Holly Mouat, Shimmery Burlesque debuted in 2022 to sold-out audiences and standing ovations. The show is based on her mother, Kerrie Schultz (Shimmery Couture) - the head costume designer of the show. Cabaret Singer Abbey Paige Williams stars as Lady Shimmery, alongside a grand Burlesque ensemble. Shimmery is choreographed by award winning Maple Rose and Kimera Diamond, with lighting design by Jason Bovaird.

BASED ON A TRUE STORY

 

Holly's mother Kerrie (the real Lady Shimmery) began her early artistic journey in graphic design before venturing into fashion and bridal couture. A trip to Paris in 2010, courtesy of her award-winning paintings, marked a turning point. Here, alongside her daughter Holly, they were captivated by the opulence of French Cabaret, igniting Holly's passion for Burlesque.

 

Holly began performing Burlesque in 2016, with Kerrie making all of her costumes. From these sparks, Shimmery Couture was born. The name "Shimmery" pays homage to Kerrie's Aunt, Margaret Imrie. Over the past seven years, Shimmery Couture has created costumes for world-class touring productions and some of the best in Australian Burlesque.

 

Holly spent five years developing the concept of the Shimmery Burlesque stage show, and in October 2022 the five star production made its debut, captivating sold-out audiences and earning standing ovations.
