The award winning extravaganza of circus, dance, comedy and so much more in a night of fast, physical, bawdy and above all, sublimely entertaining cabaret. Pleasure, sexiness, lashings of comedy; fast, playful, exceedingly physical, and highly entertaining aerial acts! Divine singing, dance & clever cabaret combined by the seamless magic of your very own host the loveable, unflappable, king of kiwi comedy; Vinyl Burns.

Heavenly Burlesque, ladies and gentlemen showcases short acts where beauty and glamour go hand in hand with gravity defying circus and anarchic humor. Be tempted into a world of splendor and excess. Don your most luscious outfit to mingle with the heavenly creatures. From the moment you arrive you will be lured into a world of unexpected surprises, farce and more than a sprinkling of naughtiness.

“Cirque du Soleil for the naughtier audience” – Helen King
“…there is much to applaud in this production of entertaining acts under the over-all direction of Tom Beauchamp…highly enjoyable entertainment…” - Ewen Coleman, Dom Post.

Awards and Reviews.

Best Theatre Award - Wellington fringe 2006

Best of the Fringe – Wellington fringe 2006

“There’s no doubt Heavenly Burlesque is a hit of the fringe. Last night the Paramount foyer was packed by punters happy to be primed by roving performers – a farmer and his dog, a crop-wielding dominatrix, weird people in exotic garb – if not exactly to ‘Shut up!’, as exhorted by one, to listen to set pieces like Dreamscape’s ‘Restaurant’ sketch or songs from blue-haired soprano Barbie and blonde mezzo soprano-with a squeeze-box Ashlyn.
By the time they fill the theatre the punters are ready to rock…”

1. John Smythe: NBR


“ The real strength of Heavenly Burlesque was its pace. One act drifted seamlessly into another and there was absolutely no waiting around. If the stage needed to be changed other parts of the auditorium, such as the audience, were used flawlessly. There was not a second in which any audience member, especially one with an alarmingly shot attention span like mine, could get bored…
Needless to say, I enjoyed the show, a lot. It was fun, sexy and highly polished. Unlike a number of similar shows it worked, spectacularly. It changes every night but it promises to remain bloody good. It went off and I will certainly be going again, and again.”

- Jules Van Cruysen: Salient Magazine
