The Muppet Burlesque Show

The Muppet Burlesque Show

8:00pm - Friday, Mar 17, 2023

It's time to put on make up,
It's time to dress up right,
It's time to raise the curtain on the Muppet Burlesque Show tonight...

The Geekenders are excited to present a live, tribute variety show to one of the most revered, beloved TV shows ever... It's THE MUPPET BURLESQUE SHOW!

Join us at the Rio Theatre on Friday, March 17 (St. Patrick's Day!) for a burlesque show that celebrates some of the most endearing characters from one of the most iconic film and television franchises ever, with energetic dancing, comedy, and cheeky satire created by artists just as nerdy as you are.

The Geekenders’ popular nerdy cabarets combine the irreverence of the Muppets with the polish and showmanship of a Vegas showgirl revue. Some of Vancouver’s silliest and sassiest burlesque dancers will be entertaining you with all different characters from Jim Henson's universe for THE MUPPET BURLESQUE SHOW!

So grab a friend (or frog, pig, or maybe a skin-slapping animal) and join us for the geeky, sexy, body-positive, energetic, reference-filled and super hot night out with the nerd community that you love.

Producing ‘nerdlesque' shows, variety shows, fandom-based parties, plays, and immersive theatre, Geekenders is, first and foremost, about community. Our emphasis is always going to be about providing a quirky, interesting evening full of art, socializing and fun for those of us who might not otherwise spend their Friday at a party.

Original performances from some of Vancouver's favourite geeks, nerdlesque, variety acts, comedy, performers both seasoned and brand new, singalongs, and new and different themes that combine nostalgia, memes, and iconic pop culture.
