Burlesque  |  March 28, 31, April 1 @ 9pm  |  Telluride Theatre @ The Sheridan Opera House  |  21+ only   

Telluride Theatre first resurrected the concept of burlesque seven years ago, empowering a class of eleven women as they learned to shimmy, strut, strip and tease on stage. The fundraiser was an instant success, and every year the tradition repeats with a new class.

The Theatre's fundraiser resurrects the raucous and raunchy variety shows of Telluride’s vaudeville era, featuring dancing, comedy, acrobatics and beautiful local women. Two different shows; CHEAP THRILLS is the “graduation” of our beginning class. THE HOUSE OF SHIMMY SHAKE presents HOLLYWOOD BURLESQUE: In a world of the silver screen and the walk of fame, we celebrate all things silver screen and shout in our pasties... Hooray for Hollywood!
