Celebrate International Women’s Day with Sass, Sparkles, and Fun

Cheesecake Burlesque Revue Bring Their High-Energy, Empowering Workshop and Show to Spruce Grove

The Cheesecake Burlesque Revue keeps their audiences coming back for more! More laughs, more tease, and more body confidence. With influences from cult classics to Broadway favourites they create imaginative show-stoppers. The performers are as individual as the stars on the walk of fame - cute and geeky, rock 'n' roll, classic and elegant - audiences can't help but have a favourite or two or three! Known for high energy acts, lavish costumes, stand out performers, comedic timing, seductiveness and girl-next door accessibility, the Cheesecakes wonderfully sassy performance celebrates International Women’s Day (March 8). This is a perfect mother/daughter date, girls night out, or show to share with your sweetheart. Spend a fun and fabulous night with The Cheesecakes at Horizon Stage on Saturday, March 10 at 7:30 p.m.  

Formed in 2006, The Cheesecake Burlesque Revue is based out of Victoria B.C. The troupe has won multiple Monday Magazine M-Awards, including "Next Big Thing" and "Favourite Performance Group". They have shimmied across stages at Burlesque Festivals in Paris, Berlin, New York, New Orleans, and all across Canada. With a mission that includes performing with confidence, humour and sass, and putting on wicked shows that inspire and encourage their audiences, they continually develop themselves as performers. As much as their show is about fun and entertainment, it is also about sending a message: “Everyone is beautiful, and everyone should be proud of their bodies.” Armed with sassy-silliness, these ladies pack a sparkly punch that will make your heart happy and leave you loving the skin you’re in!

Betsy Bottomdollar, Kitten Kaboodle, Dolly Pop, Silk E. Guns, Lady Muse, Ginger Kittens, and Lolly Lushbottom mix song, dance, comedy, and lots of skin into a two-hour tour de force that will make you scream with every unhooked bra, laugh out loud, and holler for more at Horizon Stage on Saturday, March 10 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are just $35 for adults and $30 for seniors and students (age 16+) and may be purchased at the City Hall Ticket Centre (315 Jespersen Ave), by phone at 780-962-8995 or 1-888-655-9090, and online through

“…the type of good, clean fun that depends on the audience getting out of its seats and becoming involved…
The more people clapped, whistled and cheered, the more energy filled the Metro. 
This was a night of wonderful talent, great laughs and leaving with a smile on your face.”
- Grant McKenzie/ Monday Magazine

“The Cheesecakes strive to increase body confidence and sexual confidence of their audience, and they certainly succeeded. Every woman walked out of the Surrey Arts Centre that night with a smile on her face, a strut in her step, 
and in many cases, some pasties in her purse”
- Cassie Silva / Review Vancouver
