★★★★★ "Best Burlesque show I have ever seen!"

Shimmery Burlesque Melbourne is stepping into the spotlight with their five star production. After a sell out debut, this show is not to be missed!

“We are so proud of our sparkling show, and cannot wait to welcome you into the world of Shimmery.” - Holly (Director)

Shimmery invites you to Melbourne’s most glamorous night out; with thousands of rhinestones, over one hundred exclusive costumes, twenty dazzling Burlesque numbers, fifteen fabulous performers, and one Shimmery vision... to truly entertain you!

You will be whisked away into a world of vintage tease, in a sparkling atmosphere with costuming of pure opulence. This is set to be an unforgettable experience, with Burlesque acts you won’t find anywhere else in the world.

In a cheeky tribute to the history of Shimmery Couture, the show follows the life of Lady Shimmery; an artist and designer who finds herself immersed in costuming for Cabaret. The story begins in Lady Shimmery’s workroom, inspired by the romance of old-fashioned dressing rooms.

The stage adorned with sewing machines, dressing tables and mirrors... the costumes glistening with rhinestones, feathers and tassels. You are then swept into the second half of the show, into a vintage French garden with parasols, park benches, fountains and painters. The show is set in the city of Paris, which has been a main influence in Lady Shimmery’s life and art, and the place she first fell in love with the art of Burlesque.

★★★★★ “World Class. Could watch it again and again!” ★★★★★ “Breathtaking.” ★★★★★ “Everything was spectacular. One show isn't enough!"

Burlesque Melbourne is directed by Holly Mouat (Miss Holly Wouldn’t). A cast of sixteen are choreographed by cabaret dancer Kimera Diamond and award winning Burlesque artist Maple Rose, with feature choreography by Iva Grande and Sham. The leading lady 'Lady Shimmery' is played by Abbey Williams. Kerrie Schultz (Shimmery Couture) is a Melbourne based costumier with four decades of experience in couture fashion, bridal, art and sculpture. In 2015, together with her daughter Holly, she began creating costumes for Burlesque. Shimmery has since created for artists and productions all over the world.
