The Empire Strips Back
  • Due to popular demand The Empire Strips Back is returning for its final Australian shows of 2016!

    The Empire Strips Back takes the classic characters from the beloved Star Wars film franchise, and drops them into the world of Burlesque, creating a show like no other. Be amazed at Russall S. Beattie’s attention to detail in re-creating the magic and childhood wonder of the original three films, and then be thrilled as the childhood wonder is abolished by good old fashioned adult fun! Combining striptease, song and dance, troupe routines and comedy, this show is truly destined to deliver you to the dark side.

    Expect some seriously sexy stormtroopers, a dangerously seductive Boba Fett, tantalising Twi’leks, a Darth with a different kind of dark side, a delightfully luke-warm Taun Taun, a lady-like Skywalker, the Droids you are looking for and much, much more!

    If you are a lover of Star Wars or good entertainment, then this show is for you. It’s not a trap!

" extravagant, fantastical melange of burlesque stylings performed exquisitely by the ladies - good adult fun taking suggestive subtexts of the film and running a mile with them..."

- Deborah Hawke
