The Rosebud Burlesque Club and Academy was founded in 2007 in Saskatoon Saskatchewan to meet the needs of wayward Canadian prairie girls. It has since established regular classic burlesque classes at Positive Passions and has introduced the fair city to a fair bit of bits! The Academy is directed by Head Mistress Cheripop Purr and has over a dozen graduates so far.

The Rosebuds are pleased to present “Under the Fringe” during the Saskatoon Fringe Festival. . The company consists of: Head Mistress Cheripop Purr, Mistress of Ceremonies - Helen, Bedde, Candy Apple and Cotton Candy – the Sugar Twins, Sweet Betty Bon Bon, Naughty Nurse Hellina Handbasket, the wholesome Rosemary Spice, and our sexy maid KiKi. Under the Fringe will also feature: Rip Strong Man, The puppetry of Anita Brassiere and Chesty La Rude, and the Musical stylings of Paschal and Dahl.

Neo/New Burlesque is a revival or updating of the traditional burlesque performance. A new generation, nostalgic for the spectacle and perceived glamour of the old times is determined to bring burlesque back! Today, New Burlesque has taken many forms, but all have the common trait of honoring one or more of burlesque’s previous incarnations, with acts including striptease, expensive costumes, bawdy humor, cabaret and more. As with the earlier burlesque, neo-burlesque is more focused on the "tease" in "striptease" than the "strip."
