World's Hottest Burlesque Stars Arrive in Calgary

Burlesque Assassins exclusive live show to be held during Calgary Underground Film Festival

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - March 29, 2011) - Feather boas, tassels, glitter and teasing, these are just some of the things in store for Calgarians as the best and brightest stars of burlesque light up the stage for one night only.

Performers from as far away as Hamburg, Germany and as close as San Francisco, have been brought together by Calgary film writer and director, Jonathan Joffe, for his feature film Burlesque Assassins which will be filming in Calgary March 31 until April 20.

Set in the 1950s, the film takes place somewhere in the Canadian prairies during the cold war. There's intrigue, espionage and most importantly, sexy, deadly superspies who use the power of their feminine allure to bring their enemies to their knees. 

"We've got the hottest burlesque superstars from around the world seducing their way onto the silver screen and leaving you breathless and begging for more," says Joffe.

To celebrate the film, members of the cast will be appearing in an exclusive 120 minute live burlesque show on Tuesday, April 12, at the Plaza Theatre in Kensington as part of the Calgary Underground Film Festival (CUFF). The show will include a performances by: Kiki Kaboom, Koko La Douce, Renea LaRoux Kitten Deville, Scarlett Martini, Kelitta, Armitage Shanks, Carrie Schiffler, members of local dance groups, Jewel Box Burlesque and Toe Tapping Swing, and the reigning Queen of Burlesque and 2010 Miss Exotic World, Roxi D'Lite.

"I am excited to come to Calgary and begin my first acting adventure," says Roxi. "I feel lucky to be involved in the film and the show."

Tickets can be purchased online at www.calgaryundergroundfilm.org or rush sales at the door. General admission is $15, and preferred seating is $35.
