Halloween Burlesque: October 27-29 at Crackers in Broad Ripple | Thursday is college night, $5 with a valid college ID

This October, Angel Burlesque celebrates the sexy side of Halloween with Boo-lesque: Things that go Bump (and Grind) in the Night! Join them for a frightfully funny journey along with special guest star Ray Gunn of Chicago's Stage Door Johnnies. Indy's only professional theatrical burlesque troupe will terrify and titillate in this full length production of dance, song, and the classic art of the striptease.

SPECIAL GUEST STAR:
Ray Gunn from Chicago will guest star in Angel Burlesque’s Boo-lesque: Things that go Bump (and Grind) in the Night! The original Death by Chocolate, Ray Gunn combines acrobatics, capoeira and Chinese pole in his striptease arsenal with over 15 years of training and performance experience behind him. This sexual assault on your senses is the morning coffee of burlesque—he’s strong, black and keeps you going all day long. Ray Gunn is one-third of the only all-male burlesque group in Chicago, The Stage Door Johnnies, who won the Best Group at the 2011 Burlesque Hall of Fame showcase in Las Vegas.

Angel Burlesque is excited to announce that Ray Gunn will teach his class, “The Elements,” as a burlesque workshop on Saturday, October 29th from 3:00-5:00 at the Fox Hill Dance Academy. A professional dancer for 15 years and winner of the “Choreographer of the Year” award by the Black Theatre Alliance, Ray Gunn offers a class suitable for those new to burlesque as well as performers. Email angelburlesque@gmail.com for registration information.

ABOUT ANGEL BURLESQUE:
Angel Burlesque brings the classic art form of burlesque to Indianapolis by producing full-length theatrical shows with singers, dancers, comedians, and striptease artists. These entertaining performances showcase professional burlesque performers with real bodies—from size 2 to 22. Real is sexy!
Angel Burlesque also hosts a regular series of Open Bra Nights (Like an Open Mic Night but with Burlesque!) Burlesque performers can polish new routines, and new performers can try burlesque for the first time!

The Angels have become ambassadors for Indianapolis in the burlesque community. Angels attended the Burlesque Hall of Fame in Las Vegas and have hosted other burlesque performers, including Michelle L’amour (Miss Exotic World 2005) and her Chicago Starlets (Best Group Winner at the Burlesque Hall of Fame 2010), the Stage Door Johnnies (Best Group Winner at the Burlesque Hall of Fame in 2011) and Show Me Burlesque of St. Louis (producer of the critically acclaimed Show Me Burlesque Festival). Angels have appeared locally with Belmont Burlesque from Chicago and the Randy Dandies from St. Louis. Angel performer Desda Mae Q Moana has guest starred at the St. Louis Burlesque Festival.

Angel Burlesque supports the LGBT community. Angels have performed at IYG Fundraisers, the Purple Hat Project performances, Girl Pride at Talbott Street Nightclub, and on the mainstage at the Indy Pride Festival. The September Open Bra Night is a pageant (Miss Ta-Tas and Tiaras!) to benefit Team Indy Pride in the Indiana AIDS Walk.

Angel Burlesque also hosts burlesque workshops to teach classic burlesque techniques. Workshops are appropriate for performers interested refining stage techniques as well as non-performers who want to gain self-confidence.

ABOUT KATIE ANGEL:
Angel-in-Chief Katie Angel achieved a long-time ambition when she produced the sold-out What Would the Neighbors Think? featuring Michelle L’amour of Chicago in 2010. She followed up by founding Angel Burlesque as Indy’s first professional burlesque company; she has since written and produced Welcome to Heaven, Erin Go Bragh…less, and Angel Burlesque’s wildly successful Open Bra Night series. Katie Angel has studied with such stars of the neo-burlesque world as Michelle L’amour, Dirty Martini, Indigo Blue and Jo “Boobs” Weldon. Katie most recently produced GeekFest, a Night of Multiple Nerdgasms, and performed her acclaimed Klingon routine as a special guest with the Belmont Burlesque from Chicago at GenCon.
