From the moment the Adelaide Cabaret Festival was on sale, the world’s most famous burlesque star, Dita Von Teese clearly became the Festival’s ‘must have ticket’ with her show, Strip, Strip, Hooray on Monday 13 June selling out in the first week!
With such an overwhelming response, the Festival has announced an additional show of Strip, Strip, Hooray in the Festival Theatre on Thursday 23 June 2016. Tickets for this show will go on sale on Friday 13 May.
Strip, Strip, Hooray is a 90 minute spectacle of Dita Von Teese’ most impressive work where she will be joined on stage by “the hardest working middle-aged man in show business”, MC Murray Hill, along with a cast of Dita’s favourite burlesque acts from around the globe.
“We couldn’t be more thrilled to be presenting another Dita Von Teese show in Adelaide,” say Co-Artistic Director Ali McGregor. “Dita is the consummate performer and is in a class of her own, the queen of burlesque, she is glamour personified. With a beautiful and lavish set, get ready to be teased Adelaide and get in early so you don’t miss this once in a lifetime experience!”
Presented by the Adelaide Festival Centre, the 2016 Adelaide Cabaret Festival program features more than 425 Artists in 150 performances over 16 days and nights. Demonstrating Adelaide’s fondness for all things Cabaret, ticket sales are up 11% compared to the same time last year – with great seats still available for a number of shows. The average ticket price has been kept low to allow everyone the opportunity to see their favourite artists or discover some new ones.
