TheatreOne presents: Some Like it Hoth – A Sci-Fi Burlesque Cabaret

Sun May 12th @ 7:30 pm

A long time ago… in a galaxy far, far away… There were The Geekenders!

Ready to bring the nerds of Nanaimo some sexiness, Some Like it Hoth is a popular nerdy cabaret that combines the irreverence of the Muppets and the polish and showmanship of a Vegas showgirl revue. Some of Vancouver’s silliest and sassiest burlesque dancers will bring you select performances from their popular Star Wars burlesque shows: A Nude Hope, The Empire Strips Back, Reveal of the Jedi as well as lots of new performances never seen on stage before. It’s everything you love about Geekenders and Star Wars but… in Nanaimo.
Grab a friend and join TheatreOne for the geeky, sexy, body-positive, energetic, reference-filled and super-hot night out with the nerd community that you deserve. Some Like it Hoth: A Sci-Fi Burlesque Cabaret celebrates the stories and characters you know, love, (and secretly google sexy fan art of). Expect energetic dancing, comedy, and cheeky satire – created by artists as geeky and nerdy as you are.
About The Geekenders
Called a “cult sensation” by Vancity Buzz, Geekenders Theatrical Nerdlesque has taken the Canadian burlesque scene by storm. Since their debut in 2011, Geekenders Nerdlesque has been in high demand, performing to packed audiences in Vancouver’s most fabulous venues, wowing over 85,000 audience members in British Columbia with their tightly-choreographed Vegas-style nerdlesque spectaculars.
Today, Geekenders Nerdlesque is well-known for seamlessly integrating the worlds of body positivity, burlesque, geekery, drag, queerlesque, dance, and theatre into their productions, incorporating well-known burlesque stars with passionate newcomers to create shows full of good humour, love for their source material, and a unique, whimsical style all their own.

About TheatreOne’s Showcase Series
Nanaimo’s TheatreOne introduced their new TheatreOne Showcase Series – Supporting live professional theatre at TheatreOne in February with the very popular Valentines’ Day Doug and the Slugs concert at the Port Theatre. The series was created to raise funds for both the survival of Nanaimo’s long running professional theatre company, as well as providing funds towards the goal of having the company return to producing professional live theatre productions in Nanaimo.
