LUNARIA DANCE THEATRE JOINED BY CAELA BAILEY & LA GAVIOTA IN OVER THE POP: A CABARET!
Two Nights of Fast-Paced Dance, Comedy, Song, & Bubbly Theatrical Fun!
This one-of-a-kind cabaret will showcase Lunaria Dance Theatre, Seattle-based dance company, performing dance theatre with elements of burlesque dance, showgirl, musical theatre and comedy with an added twist of belly dance; along with Caela Bailey, Seattle's sassy, seductive chanteuse and La Gaviota, dancer and bio queen with a lot of pizazz! Good clean laughs with a touch of cheek and lots of surprises, the show at Hale's Ales Palladium will be exploding with fun for two nights only from 7pm – 9pm on Friday, May 3 and Saturday, May 4th, 2019.
“Creating an experience, a night out, was my foremost goal,” says Mellilah, the producer and director of the Over the Pop: A Cabaret. “My intention was to create light-hearted, classic entertainment with non-stop dancing, singing and comedy — a fast-paced cabaret-style show performed in an airy space where my guests could move about, socialize and have a drink! It’s classy adult entertainment and unlike a traditional burlesque production, the clothes stay on.”
Mellilah, the producer of the show, director of Lunaria Dance Theatre, and a well-known, professional belly dancer, is beginning to make her presence known in Seattle’s mainstream art scene with a sold-out show for two years running, including Moon Over Manhattan: A Cabaret in 2017 and Oh, My Goldness: A Cabaret in 2018, held at Hale's Ales Palladium. Mellilah created the dance company in 2015 as another outlet to feed her passion to choreograph and her desire to step outside of the box of Egyptian style belly dance to return to her theatrical roots. The dance company is comprised of professional and award-winning dancers who collectively offer a diverse background in belly dance, theatre, ballet, ballroom, burlesque, tap, and jazz.
Advanced tickets are highly recommended; however, tickets will be available at the door until sold out. For more information about the show or to purchase tickets, visit: OverThePop.brownpapertickets.com or email Mellilah, firstname.lastname@example.org. Press passes are available upon request.
