Matchstick Merryweather, Director of Tomfoolery
Multi-Award Winning Burlesque Performer
She's sweet, spicy, and sometimes nicey. Following a fiery magician's assistant "mishap", Matchstick Merryweather found herself a young abandoned sideshow child aside a lonely desert highway with only a broken cassette tape of Kansas's 1979 album "Monolith" to provide companionship.
Today, "Matches" performs, produces, and directs for Whiskey City Burlesque. Using her background of theater, music, dance, flow arts, and overall "feminine mystique" (she is from the same city as Betty Friedan after all), she charms the pants off her audiences. Only figuratively though, what kind of a girl do you think she is?!
Matches enjoys infusing glitterblood into everyone she meets and hopes that others find as much joy, extreme self-acceptance, and ridiculous silliness as she does from the great art that is burlesque.
Blow a kiss to sweet Bubbles LeTit! With a wink and a smile, this burly babe will melt your heart and warm your loins. She’s bright-eyed, she’s perky, but don’t be fooled by the angelic face or petite frame. As a recovering “good girl”, Bubbles has spent the past decade tormenting lovers and specializing in the art of making others clutch their pearls. She’ll draw you in with a little booty shaking, but don’t step too close; this frisky girl can’t wait to burst your bubble. You’ll be back for more and singing her praises because after all, there is no angry way to say Bubbles!

Whether you've got a taste for a classic shimmy shake or something with a twist, she's got something on the menu for you. Adora's prowess as a performer includes unique choreography for solo and group dances to get your mouth watering.

Alexis Belle LaVita
"Beautiful Life" is what her name means, but Alexis Belle LaVita's life was anything but beautiful as a young girl. Separated from her American parents at an early age on a trip to the Italian Riveria, Alexis sought refuge with a group of gypsies. Initially, her blonde hair and emerald green eyes were a novelty among the group, but the novelty wore off due to the attention she received from the crowds, making her an outcast among the locals. Alexis had a gift of seduction and a clairvoyant nature. Eventually, she escaped her gypsy family and ended up on an isolated island in the Mediterranean Sea. It was there Alexis began having visions of her future...a flat land of tall corn and big buildings. She decided to follow her visions back to America where she made her way to the heartland. There, she discovered men were mesmerized by her beauty and captivated by her spellbinding essence. Alexis found a safe haven in the Vaudeville circuit of Peoria where a group of fire eating, whip cracking, sensual dancers accepted her for who she was. It was Whiskey City Burlesque who picked her out of the pumpkin patches and made her their very own.
Our next performer is a bodacious bombshell with the body and brains to back it up. Her skills with a whip have landed her in the Guinness Book of World Records, many international television appearances and has terrified audience members who were dumb enough to sit in the front row. A man once told her she could earn a hundred bucks for a trick, and since then she’s been busting out impressive feats that blow the minds of the masses. This mysterious, mystifying, mistress spent several years slaving away to get her masters degree in fluid dynamics; discovering that didn’t fully satisfy her, she decided that it would be better to stick hot, oily, flaming, props in her mouth for the entertainment of others. Now this dancer, fire performer, and whip artist has spent nearly 20 years pulsating, undulating, and oscillating, her fantastic figure to convince people to hand her money. As a nefarious member of Whiskey City Burlesque and an instructor at Be You Fitness, she loves to tell others what to do; and if you want to be a sub, I mean a student of hers, I'm sure she'd be happy to whip you into shape. Get ready for an exhilarating, titillating, and invigorating performance from, Miss Nafaria Siren!
Penelope Piston is a proper princess with a penchant for peafowl in public. No, not like that, you perverse patron of the arts! Her most popular performances prove to be promenading and perambulating, some might even say prowling across the stage. Privately she's a professional penis pleaser, but only the most polite persons are permitted the pleasure. Patrons presenting a presence lacking pleasantness will promptly receive passionate punishments, sadly not of the persuasion they prayed for. Therefore please present proper praise for this pinnacle of perfection, Penelope Piston!
Josie Wails is that special kind of sexy that blurs the lines of gender conformity. He's completely at home in or out of both skirts and trousers. He loves the freedom of neo-burlesque which allows him to be anything in the moment. Josie is a quiet person; no really. He relies heavily on costumes and movements to convey most of his messages to an audience in place of actually speaking. But true to his contrary nature sometimes Josie sings.
Director of artsy-fartsy misfits

Please give a happy hello, to the female Romeo, the sexy Scorpio and the hoe of this show, Miss Boudica Snow!
