Busts & Trunks, the Burlesque division of Ocelot on a Leash Theater Company, is thrilled to present “Stars & Garters: a Doctor Who Burlesque Experience” for Philadelphia Fringe, 2013. Please join us at the Trestle Inn on September 15-17 for what promises to be the most Wibbly Wobbly Timey Wimey evening this side of the TARDIS doors.

Our show will feature Casanova Chaos, Rita Action, “Ace”merelda Spade, Freyja Kanina, Scarlett Simone, Candi Warhol, and Aerys T. Vayle as the sexy, sultry, sonic members of the Doctor’s enclave throughout the years. “Stars & Garters” is designed to be both New-to-Who and Hardcore Whovian friendly, so burlesque enthusiasts, fangirls and boys, cosplayers, LARP-ers, nerds, geeks, freaks, sci-fi aficionados, Timelords and aspiring companions are all welcome. Bring your bawdy friends! Come join us as we channel the TARDIS, touch the Time Vortex, exit the Pandorica, and confront the Daleks. You might even meet a Doctor or two. Please be warned – SPOILERS! – “Stars & Garters” will include plot points up to and including BBC Season 6. Make sure you’re caught up, unless you like peeking into River’s little blue book.

Please note: Burlesque involves partial nudity. We love when our audiences encourage us with hoots and hollers, laughter, cheering, and whistling! We pride ourselves on performing in a body positive, sexuality accepting, and enthusiastic way. You can read more about what it's like to be at one of our shows at our website or on our Busts & Trunks Facebook page. We can't wait to see you!
