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.
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.
