Taking It Off to See the Wizard (A Burlesque Parody)
A SPECIAL FANTASY FEST EVENT
EIGHT PERFORMANCES ONLY
October 20-27 (8PM)
Somewhere over the rainbow a simple farm girl is once again swept up into the magical world of Oz — where she finds that even her wildest dreams and fantasies really do come true.
Taking it Off to See the Wizard: A Burlesque Parody is a big, bawdy burlesque production of one of the world’s most beloved stories. All of your favorite characters from this epic tale are brought to life by a bevy of burlesque beauties in this captivating show.
The infamous Wizard will be played by the 2012 King of Burlesque, Russell Bruner, an internationally acclaimed talent who offers a combination of vaudeville charm and burlesque sex appeal; Fort Lauderdale’s Miss Jenna Beth, burlesque performer extraordinaire, nationally and internationally published pin-up model, classical dancer and figure skater will perform the role of Dorothy, while the Brit-born South Floridian and International burlesque performer Miss Aurora Natrix dazzles as the Wicked Witch of the West, storming the stage with her sultry burlesque moves, ornate costumes, and classic tribute moves. New York songstress Shelly Watson, an award-winning, Juilliard Bachelor and Masters of Music graduate, once again joins the troupe as the Good Witch of the North.
And of course, the always-outstanding Key West Burlesque performers, including Tatah Dujour, Moana Amour, and Miss Zurima, parody the ensemble cast of the cherished tale including the Lollipop Guild, the speaking trees and flying monkeys like you’ve never seen before.
Taking it Off to See the Wizard: A Burlesque Parodycomes to life for eight nights at the Waterfront Playhouse on October 20-27. Doors open at 7:30 and the show starts at 8PM.
