Miss Burlesque New Zealand

Miss Burlesque New Zealand

Miss Burlesque New Zealand is back in March 2014 for it’s 5th year of glitz, success and that sprinkling of mayhem which is the spice on every industry performers cupcake.

Gracing our capital city this year, The annual show and pageant is the highlight on Aotearoa’s Burlesque calendar. 2014 promises strong competition for the revered crowns and titles of both Miss and Mr Burlesque New Zealand, which will be decided by an elite panel of judges. The star studded night will also bring dazzling acts from some of New Zealands best Burlesque talent and international starlet Sina King: also known as “The Captivating Royal” will headline.

Mr Burlesque New Zealand was added to the heady mix in 2013, with reigning Boylesque King Mo’ Cachino taking the glory, the crown, and the audiences hearts by storm. With two thirds of Burlesque audience generally made up of women, he set out to seduce, shock , and give all the men reason to lock up their daughters. With his year long rule coming to an end, Mo’ Cachino - who describes himself as “A velvety hot chocolate, with a double shot of samba for extra shimmy” , prepares to hand over his prestigious claim to fame, and twirls his luscious moustache deviously.

The reigning Queen of New Zealand Burlesque, MisRed Delicious took last years competition by surprise with her high energy, bump ‘n’grind, classic styled burlesque routine. It was the first time that a traditional routine had won at Miss Burlesque New Zealand, with previous years always favouring neo-burlesque/comedic routines. MisRed Delicious was honoured to not only win the coveted Miss Burlesque title, but also the Miss Tease title, awarding her the most classic routine of the night. MisRed Delicious has spent her year as Miss Burlesque New Zealand focussing heavily on teaching and production, nurturing the glittery industry alongside her husband and co-conspirator. She looks forward to meeting her successor and seeing what she has to offer audiences as she crowns new Burlesque royalty.

If lavish costumiery, tasteful tease, comedy, elegance, powerful personas, music, glitter and all the glamour our country has to offer in one explosive cocktail appeals to you, then Miss Burlesque New Zealand from Producer Catherine Smith, is the unmissable event of the year. The night is being hosted at the Wellington High School Hall, on Saturday 22nd March 2014. Doors open 7.00 pm Show starts 8.00 pm , and tickets are available on the door or from our preferred online ticketing agent Eventfinder http://www.eventfinder.co.nz/2014/miss-burlesque-new-zealand-2014/wellington
