A risqué twist on The Nutcracker, Nightmare Before the Nutcracker: A Very Burton Xmas Show returns to the Rio Theatre just in time to put some Tim Burton in your Christmas stocking.

Beetlejuice, Jack Skellington and other figures from Burton films mix with characters from The Nutcracker in an original production that mixes elements of theatre, and circus. And it’s an adults-only show, to boot.

A popular burlesque take-off on one of pop culture’s most enduring franchises returns for a run this July.

A Nude Hope is a tribute to Star Wars featuring Luke Skywalker and company in a way you’ve never seen them. From a Death Star dance to a roller-derbying R2D2 and a biker chick Chewbacca, the production entertains with a show that has been described as “Star Wars meets Moulin Rouge and the Muppet Show.” A Nude Hope, which premiered at the Rio Theatre in East Vancouver two years ago, is coming back for an 11 performance run at Granville Island’s Waterfront Theatre July 8 – 19.

April 30

It’s May! Summer is coming, and what better way to celebrate than with a weekend of shedding some clothes in the form of all the burlesque going on this weekend or a body painting competition? If that’s too fast for you we can do dinner and a movie first – or many dinners and many movies. In fact, how about entire festivals devoted to eating and documentary film? If that’s still not quit right, there’s also theatre, dance, music and a nerd prom for adults going on this weekend.
