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 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!
