Burlesque Back with a Boom at The Meteor

The infamous OOH La La Burlesque is back for 2019 with a brand-new show at The Meteor Theatre on March 2nd. Continuing with tradition of having an award-winning performer headlining the show, this year OOH La La Burlesque are thrilled to Miss Burlesque New Zealand 2015, Cherry Boomb!

After winning Miss Burlesque New Zealand Cherry took her career overseas living in the UK for two years and performing all over the country, including in the 2016 & 2017 Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Renowned as a performer with “wowfactor” Cherry Boomb sets herself apart from the rest as an aerialist and contortionist, incorporating the athleticism into her performance.

“Because she is a Contortionist and Aerial Artist, as well as a burlesque dancer, her performances are always intriguing and exciting” says show producer Miss OOH La La Paree.

Despite a new headliner, some OOH La La Burlesque favourites are returning once more by popular demand. The show will once again be led by hilarious MC Miss Gloriousole, and feature performances from Blues and Jazz singer Lee Page. A diverse mix of performers from all over the country will also be joining the line-up to create a truly memorable and celebratory occasion with the show marking a special birthday for show producer and performer Miss OOH La La Paree.

One of these performers being a second musical guest, Christine Frew, a local performer who will be making her OOH La La Burlesque debut. With two musical guests, an MC, burlesque performances and even some aerial acrobatics thrown into the mix, the show is well into cabaret territory.

“We even have cabaret style seating available, where audiences can be in the centre of the action at VIP table seating”

Both table seating and general admission tiered seating is available for the show, with the table seating being limited. Audiences are encouraged to book in advance for the show to avoid disappointment with tickets being available for purchase at
