The Menagerie Burlesque Company Ruins Your Childhood!

This weekend, on a very special episode of Menagerie Burlesque Company productions, the Company members revisit the pop culture hits of their youth and childhood.

And wreck them.

When we decided to do this show, there were some VERY excited faces in the room. We were like kids on Christmas morning. Or Easter morning. Or Hallowe’en evening. Or any Saturday that involved cartoons and good cereal. You get the point. We were excited. And we still are!

We’ve had a ton of fun sifting through source material for costume references, music tracks, and general inspiration. The result may be our most over-the-top, ridiculous show yet. And like a lot of things in life, it’ll be way more fun showing off the fruits of our labour in front of an appreciative (if somewhat scandalized) audience.

So come be scandalized and let the Menagerie Burlesque Company Ruin Your Childhood.

This wonderfully ridiculous, nostalgic show runs September 8 & 9 at the Remai BackStage. Tickets are $20 in advance, $25 day of.

A Message from Your Cruise Director

As your cruise director, it is my responsibility to ensure you have a wonderful time aboard the S.S. Menagerie.  This is not going to be a boring, quiet 2-hour harbour tour!  Each of our two sailings includes some of the more amazing entertainers this side of the Atlantic and the Pacific.  The Menagerie Burlesque Company’s usual roster of outrageous performers will be bringing you a most ‘naughty-cal’ evening of entertainment.  Our classic beauty, Eva De La Manzana will be bringing to life another classic beauty.  Sadie Sugarbottom, or perhaps Stripperbottom, will have some truly adult entertainment to share.  Brigadier General Cornelius D. Longfellow, the 69th Earl of Coxford will be on hand (so to speak) in tribute to the storied military history of the S.S. Menagerie.  She is a decommissioned frigate after all.  Our very own sea siren, Foxxi Fuse, will be singing her heart out for you. We’ve got a great new dancer, Neil Ingman, gracing our stage.  Vitamin D has an amazing new piece prepared … and it’s just too juicy to give away!  Now, it wouldn’t be a cruise without onboard activities!  We’ll have synchronized swimming and aerobics taught by the lovely ladies of the Menagerie! There will be a game with fabulous prizes, a poolside treat, a sea shanty sing-a-long and a photo booth to capture your trip for posterity.  Your captain, Peter MorningWood, and I, Lola D’Moan, have an uncouth, uninhibited and unapologetic cruise planned for you!  As soon as Captain MorningWood finds the keys to the ship we’ll set sail for fun, adventure and sexy times!

We sail from Village Guitar & Amp on Friday, June 2 and Saturday, June 3 at 8:00 pm. Have your tickets an hour before sailing!  $20 in advance and $25 at the door.

Get your tickets online at Brown Paper Tickets.  In person at Glitch Gifts and Novelties (the worst store ever on 19th St. at Avenue B).  Or by contacting us at menagerieburlesque@gmail.com

Bring your rubbers it’s going to be a wet ride!

Love, Magic & Seamen,

The Ins and Outs of a Remount: Sausage Fest 2

In anticipation of Sausage Fest 2: The Remounting, we cornered one of our Men of Burlesque to answer a couple of questions. Here’s the goods from Peter MorningWood

“It wasn’t my idea,” he said, before I could ask the first question. Fair enough. . .

Q: Sausage Fest 2 the Remounting is, obviously, a remount. Of all the shows The Menagerie have done, why do this one again?

Peter: We thought redoing the show would give Saskatoon audiences a better chance to go to a more frequented location. The people who will go see a show at Diva’s aren’t necessarily the same people who attended at the last venue.

It’s not a standard or classic burlesque show. The show itself is a celebration of diverse masculinity. People who would normally go see our shows will be surprised. They’ll see numbers that they wouldn’t normally see.

Q: Can you give us a sneak peek, as it were?

Peter: We’ve got the Dirtiest Barber Shop Quartet that you’ll see. You’ll never look at The Muppets again the same way. A nod to Victor/Victoria. And a lot of other surprises and some by-demand repeat performances. Because Freedom Pie!

Q: And what about the people who’ve seen it before?

Peter: There are a couple of numbers that weren’t in the November production that were requested.

Q: Are you looking forward to bringing back those popular pieces?

Peter: Yes! Each performance is a little different from night to night. We get the crowd involved. The crowd is the most important part of the performance, because there is no fourth wall. Period.

Q: Are you looking forward to doing more of a bar show? Do they offer a different kind of energy from theatre shows?

Peter: Yes and yes. You get a different type of upward energy as opposed to a theatre. Our theatre crowds can be very loud. Very fun. Very rowdy. In a bar show, you get to be loud, and fun, and rowdy back at them. The way you interact is different when you’re playing to a bar audience. We love our crowds, wherever they are.

Q: What would you say to burlesque show virgins to convince them to give it a try?

Peter: We start off with fun and awesome, and we take it to ridiculous. What you think might happen may not happen at all. You’ll be amazed. And. . . . you’ll be amazed. Take a chance on something that isn’t another mediocre movie. Because our main goal is that you have fun. We are here to entertain you.

 

And on that Nirvana note. . .

Sausage Fest 2: The Remounting is Friday, April 28 at Diva’s in downtown Saskatoon. Doors at 9:00, Show at 10:00.
$20 at the door.

Bring a friend. Bring two!
