Burlesque weekend

Are you ready for the Cheesecake Burlesque Revue's big weekend?

After months of planning, a weekend of burlesque is about to come to Invermere.

The members of the Cheesecake Burlesque Revue will be hitting the town to give a workshop and put on a show like nothing ever seen locally before.

Hosted by the Columbia Valley (CV) Arts Council, women can still sign up for the workshops and some tickets are available at The Book Bar, Pynelogs and Bud’s Bar and Lounge for the show being held on March 27.

The council has tried to give people interested in taking part as many ways as possible to be involved in this unique event.

The burlesque menu ticket choices are as follows; attend the Burlesque Workshop from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on March 26 for $100; to go to the Burlesque Workshop with lunch by Terroir Catering, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., is $135; a one day Discover Your Inner Burlesque Dancer, which  includes the workshop, lunch, a transformation (make-up, hair and costume) and Pynelogs After Dark,  which happens from 11 a.m. until dark is $200; a two-day backstage pass including the workshop, lunch, transformation, SWAG, Pynelogs After Dark, dinner at Birchwood and burlesque stage show on Saturday and Sunday is $300.

If you are interested in just the Sunday part of the weekend there are two different tickets you can purchase.

Dinner at Birchwood Restaurant and the burlesque stage show with the  Cheesecake Burlesque Troupe will be $65 and begin at 6 p.m.  while tickets for just the Cheesecake Burlesque Revue Stage Show are $25.
