ABOUT THE SHOW
SHIMMERY BURLESQUE RETURNS TO THE SPOTLIGHT WITH THEIR FIVE STAR PRODUCTION.
"we are so proud of our show and cannot wait to welcome you into the world of shimmery."
Shimmery invites you to Melbourne's most glamorous night out. Thousands of rhinestones, over one hundred stunning costumes, twenty exclusive burlesque routines, fifteen fabulous performers and one Shimmery vision... to entertain you!
you will be whisked away into a world of vintage tease, in a sparkling atmosphere with costuming of pure opulence. this is set to be an unforgettable experience with burlesque acts you won't find anywhere else in the world!
In a cheeky tribute to the history of Shimmery Couture, the show follows the life of Lady Shimmery; an artist and designer who finds herself immersed in costuming for cabaret.
The story begins in Lady Shimmery's workroom, inspired by the romance of old-fashioned dressing rooms. the stage adorned with sewing machines, dressing tables and mirrors... the costumes glistening with rhinestones, feathers and tassels! You are then swept into the second half of the show, into a vintage French garden with parasols, park benches, fountains and painters. The show is set in the city of Paris, which has been a main influence in Lady Shimmery's life and art, and the place she first fell in love with the art of Burlesque.
"The best Burlesque show I have ever seen!"
"World Class. Could watch it again and again."
Burlesque melbourne is directed by Holly Mouat (Miss Holly Wouldn't). A cast of sixteen are choreographed by cabaret dancer Kimera Diamond and award winning Burlesque artist Miss Maple Rose.
