The StoryBusta' Nutcracker!
It's a retelling of The Nutcracker Ballet, just for us grown-ups, with lots of comedy, irony, and XXXmas spirit thrown in!
Our story is set on a snowy XXXmas Eve in 1952. 18-year-old Clara falls asleep after being bullied at a prep school party. She drifts into a fantastic world where her hopes and wet dreams become larger than life. Her beloved Nutcracker, a gift from her Auntie Sexpot, transforms into a virile prince who whisks her away from her fate as a drab housewife into the Land of Vice where she experiences a coming of age adventure!
This sensual feast incorporates a variety of dance styles including Ballet, Modern Dance, Pole Dance, Belly Dance, and Aerial Silks (to name just a few), all set to a sexy version of the classic ballet.
The Wicked Wenches Cabaret
is a group of 13 ladies and a tranny all dedicated to this mission:
"We advocate positive physical, mental and emotional wellness, as well as acceptance, by sharing our own experiences through the traditional art of burlesque."
We poke fun at stereotypes, shine a light on dark social issues, and present real questions about sexuality and the nature of man- all in a tongue in cheek way that will leave you smiling AND thinking.
Burlesque is adult dance theater performed by elaborately-costumed women (and some men) who peel off those elaborate costumes while dancing or singing or performing amazing feats! Sorry kids, Busta’ Nutcracker is 18+ as there will be nudity and adult themes.
Nothing brings us more joy than to make you laugh, smile, chuckle, giggle, gafaw and crack up. The Wicked Wenches are dedicated to providing a unique, high quality experience for our audience and work hard to do so. We rehearse dance four hours a week in studio, countless hours at home and spend time time crafting, costuming, designing sets, song writing and script building.
This XXXmas we want to bring you a new story but we can't do it alone. We need your help NOW!
How your donation helps:
We already have the script, dance, and most of the costumes. What we need is a set and venue! We want Busta' Nutcracker to be a spectacle worthy of dirty old Tchaikovsky himself!
Our goal is to raise enough funds to perform a three night run, December 19-21 2013, at the Southern Theater in Minneapolis.
A towering brick arch and 50+ foot dance floor makes the Southern Theater an ideal space for a ballet and gives it a dreamy feel ideal for the Nutcracker.
All donations will go directly to this purpose, so please donate today and bring to the stage a magical, fun filled, naughty feast of fancy!
Help make XXXmas come... early this year!
Risks and challenges
Our only challenge is budget for a venue and set.
We have the story, now we just need to share it! The set design calls for lots of trees, glitter, concrete and casters. (Use your imagination!) We will be creating two worlds: Mz. Frigid's House Wife Prep School for Girls (Domesticating females since 1803) and the Land of Vice.
We need a wide open space to give the performance the scope a Nutcracker show deserves. Our sights are set on the Southern Theater, BUT it is quite a costly production venue and we are hoping our fans will help with the costs for rental, insurance, ticket promotions, crew, tech, and clean up!
