"The first time I ever saw a Burlesque show, I didn't know how to behave. Actually, I still don't know how to behave. But below are some fine and dandy things to know about coming to our show!"
You've never been to our Burlesque Show? Here's some of the do's and don'ts and things to know:
1) You may laugh out loud. It's OK. You're here to have a good time. Even if you choose not to tip, applause is always welcome.
2) If you decide to tip the dancers or performers you can do so by lifting up the dollar bill so it's visible. They will gladly collect it from you or you may put it in their hat. You aren't required to tip, put it'll make the show more fun for you.
3) Most people tip $1, $5, or $10. You may tip the dancers various times throughout the show...in fact, it's encouraged! And if you want to drop a check into their hat you may do so too! Just be sure to make it out to MBS Productions and the box office will make sure the funds are given to the performers. All money's collected are shared amongst the performers.
4) Do wait to tip the dancers at the appropriate time. The show has choreographed moments in which the dancers and Wilma will go out to collect money. Wait for those moments.
5) Do tell your friends if you enjoyed the show. This show has become a major hit thanks to word of mouth.
1) Do NOT touch the dancers. They are Dancers, not strippers.
2) Do NOT catcall, heckle, or make lewd comments.
3) Do NOT toss coins. This can cause dangerous conditions for the dancers as they are performing.
4) Do NOT film, photograph, or use any recording devices during the show. This show is protected by copyright. Also, the use of flash can be very dangerous to a dancers for it causes momentary blindless and can lead to injury.
5) Do NOT call to complain about the show. As Dickey says "We don't care!" We know this show is not everyone's taste, and it can be offensive to some people.
Things to Know:
1) The show is somehwat interactive with the audience. We say "somewhat interactive" because there are moments in which the audience is asked to participate as a group. Your host, Dickey, will guide you throughout the evening.
2) Some of the performers do go out into the audience and talk or interact with certain audience members. You will never be called on stage, but don't be suprised if suddenly you find yourself having a conversation with Dickey, Wilma, or one of the dancers. All of our performers are professional and can gauge individuals in the audience that are more open to this kind of participation. All comments and double entendres are meant in pure fun, so do not take it personally (especially Wilma's comments, because at times she can be cranky!) Be aware if you are in the front row you are more likely to be called upon.
3) You are not required to tip the dancers, though it'll make it much more fun. Most people who come to the show know this beforehand. Just because you do not want to doesn't mean you should impede the people who choose to do so.
4) Have a good time. You've come to see an adult show, with adult humor, and sexy dancing. If you are easily offended by sexual innuendo, strong language, or are offended by political and social commentary that isn't in line with your belief system, then this show is definitely not for you.
5) Seats are reserved in the order in which they are purchased. Be aware that because this show is so popular and we are such a small theatre we will try our best to seat your party together. If you purchase a large number of seats or you purchase multiple seats at different times for the same performance, it may be difficult to seat your group together. It's advisable you buy your seats as far in advance as possible. If you have any seating questions or special requests call 214-477-4942.
