Back by popular demand, the Cheesecake Burlesque Revue will be performing at Fairmont Hot Springs Resort on Saturday, April 20th as part of an all ladies event entitled “Up! & Away Girls Weekend,” put on by the resort and Up! 97.7 FM, a Calgary radio station.
The weekend is part of a promotion for Fairmont Hot Springs Resort geared toward out-of-town women who want a fun weekend away from the city, but according to Colleen McKee, the marketing manager for the resort, the events on Saturday are for local ladies to let loose as well.
“Locals are more than welcome to come for the whole weekend package, but if they want to attend the events on Saturday their cost would be $49.00 for the whole evening,” Ms. McKee said.
The evening begins with a 1920s-themed buffet dinner, followed by two 45-minute performances by the ever popular Cheescake Burlesque Revue, and capped off with a flapper style 1920s after-party at the Bear’s Paw Bar and Grill. Costumes for the after party are strongly encouraged, she added.
“The burlesque show is also themed, and they are calling it a ‘Speak-Teasy’ performance,” said Ms. McKee.
The Cheesecake Burlesque Review is a Vancouver-based group that has performed its cheeky brand of burlesque in the valley a number of times and has received glowing reviews.
Three of Up! FMs female radio personalities, Morning Show early-riser Leslie Stein, Drivetime’s Susan Knight and Robbin Raey will take part in the weekend events as well. For more information or to book tickets visit www.fairmonthotsprings.com/up-away-girls-weekend or call 250-345-6070.
