The Desultory Theatre Club partners again with Cupcake Wars winner Hardcore Sweet Cupcakes to bring you The Hardcore Halloweenie Burlesque & Variety Show at the Hardcore Sweet retail shop, bakery and performance venue at 20 Main St. in Oakville, Conn. The lights go down and temperatures rise when the show begins at 8 p.m. Tickets are $13 at the door. In true Halloween fashion, audience members are encouraged to come in costume for contests and prizes.
Some of the best in burlesque are prepared to bewitch: the award-winning Dot Mitzvah (Conn.) is the juiciest Jewess this side of the Wailing Wall; Vanil LaFrappe (Conn.) will shake and stir; Niki Tiki (N.J.) astounds as the Jessica Rabbit of burlesque; and Vivienne LaFlamme (Conn.) sets hearts on fire.
A wide array of talent will further enrapture: mind-bending illusions from Jaysin Katsikis; shadow puppets from Anatar Marmol-Gagné; and sideshow stunts from Circus Delecti members Uber Dami, Jackalope, Earl of Grey and Blackrock. Local rock/R&B band The Strangers, featuring Connecticut music mainstays Doron Flake and Spencer Luckey, will lend their talents for bone-rattling music.
At 7 p.m., local food trucks Spuds Your Way and The Green Grunion will offer themselves for the ravenous hordes. The doors open at 7:30 p.m. to Hardcore Sweet’s retail shop and lounge, featuring cupcakes so award-winningly, terrifyingly good that Rob Zombie couldn’t resist. Firefly Hollow Brewing Co. of Bristol will offer samples of its craft beers that can quench any thirst at Hardcore Sweet’s responsibly BYOB establishment.
Local filmmakers Elmwood Productions, makers of the all-puppet slasher movie Head currently touring film festivals across the country, and Justin Talarski, an up-and-comer in the indie horror scene with the film Deimosimine (Legless Corpse Productions), also will be on hand to slay before the performers kill.
Are you ready for a scary good time? An offbeat Halloween trick AND treat? The Hardcore Halloweenie Burlesque & Variety Show will be your graveyard smash!
With all this snow, it’s easy to forget what we’re still living in this area for. Then something comes around like the Electro Swing Birthday Bash and it becomes clear once more!
Join us for our big birthday bash on February 28th when The Desultory Theatre Club celebrates 4 years of bringing the best entertainment to the area!
Put on your glad rags and get ready to dance the night away!
DJ zErp will be there, spinning the hippest Electro Swing on the East Coast! Preston Parish‘s duo, Milltown Swing, will provide the jazz! And don’t forget Dot Mitzvah and Kitty Katastrophe–the best in burlesque to be found all around!
Doors open at 8:30
Music Starts at 8:45
No Gifts Needed… Just Bring Your Bad Self.
