THE BEST OF BURLESQUE COMPETE FOR MISS BURLESQUE AUSTRALIA AND MR BOYLESQUE 2013 TITLES

Victoria and Queensland have crowned their finalists, completing the state finals in the Miss Burlesque Australia competition. And now, tickets are on sale for the Miss Burlesque Australia Grand Final, to be held at Melbourne’s Athenaeum Theatre on Saturday, May 25, 2013.

Over the past two months, the best of Australia’s burlesque have participated in the Miss Burlesque state heats, giving world class performances and narrowing the competition down to seven finalists from around the country to battle it out for the coveted title, as the crown will be handed over by last year’s winner, New South Wales beauty, Briana Bluebell.

Now in its fourth year and highly regarded worldwide as one of the biggest and best burlesque competitions, Miss Burlesque Australia will deliver a truly unforgettable night of dazzling costumes, glamour and storytelling as the finalists perform their cutting edge routines in the Classic, Neo (post 1960s) and Unique (the performers’ own interpretations) forms.

And for the second consecutive year, six male finalists will vie for the Mr Boylesque title, taking the reins over from the inaugural winner, “The Black Prince of Burlesque Underground” – Raven.

Both Raven and Briana Bluebell will return to the Miss Burlesque Australia stage as special guest performers on Grand Final night.

A highlight of the Miss Burlesque Australia competition is the glamourous Gown Parade, and costumiers from around the country will be working overtime, sewing Swarovski crystals, sequins, feathers, silk, satin, organza and netting, each aiming for their respective clients to outshine the others.

To attend a Miss Burlesque Australia event is like entering into another world, with many audience members themselves getting into the spirit, dressed in costumes from bygone eras – from 1920s flappers to 1950s rockabilly chicks.

Their enthusiasm for the burlesque performers is infectious and the interaction with the “stage kittens”, egged on by the naughty but witty MC Rita Fontaine, adds to the whole experience.

The performers are judged by a panel of peers and industry experts, based upon a set criterion that includes elements of presentation, confidence, personality, the flow of the routine, storyline, costume, music and relevance to the era. The winner of Miss Burlesque Australia 2013 will receive over $10,000 in cash, prizes and sponsorship.

Tickets to the Miss Burlesque finals in each state are on sale from Tuesday, April 2 through Ticketek.
