About this project

This project is for the troupe's efforts to attend the 'SuperBowl of Burlesque'  in Las Vegas in June 2012. the event: The Burlesque Hall of Fame has invited the Philly-based outfit to compete for the title of 'Best Troupe' international. This is both a challenge of stagecraft AND in logistics. While the BHOF is actually a fundraiser FOR the Miss Exotic World Museum (and is itself a benefit) those selected from across the world - are obliged to cover ALL expenses.

Take a look at the most recent version of the number we brought TO Las Vegas in 2008, But now with our special guest: Satan's Angel:

It is our goal to secure enough funds to get all 18 members to the competition (including) the StripTease Orchestra (which has 9 members itself). All funds raised here shall be dedicated to getting the troupe TO the event (and) will be evenly-dispersed to those attending the BHOF to assure that travel, lodgings and daily expenses are at least partially covered. Should funding by friends and supporters exceed the goal -

the troupe members may actually achieve "cost-neutrality".

The troupe has been gathering talented ensemble-members over 14 years, and has made every effort to keep raising the bar on the traditional and the modern. Take a look at the Opening number from a recent showcase at the TROCADERO Theater, in Philadelphia:

"BUBBLES" live at the TROC 2011

While the troupe enjoys highlighting the members within the ensemble, we also LOVE asking friends within the larger community of modern burlesque to appear within the shows we produce.
Case-in-point: EL VEZ with the StripTease Orchestra

"En El Barrio"shot at World Cafe Live, Philadelphia

Recently - the troupe performed it's first "Mash-Up" finale by Musical Director - Dick Van Wailin'.

"I Want/My Funny Valentine/Candy" sung by Tracey Todd Superstar with (special guest) Jess Conda:

We thank those who have held us up for the last 14 years, and our confidence (nay) our hope is that the extended rewards (to the right on this page)  are both tangible and personal enough to entice your patronage for the troupe. All energies and resources from our friends across the globe are muchly appreciated and will allow us to continue in our mission:

"to Entertain and Enlighten via Burlesque and Cabaret"

with love, pasties and feathers
