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.

Peek a Boo! Combines the spirit of burlesque with the spirit of Halloween in a fun and exciting show! Join us for an evening of things that go bump and grind in the night! The company consists of: Head Mistress Cheripop Purr, Mistress of Ceremonies - Helen, Bedde, Candy Apple and Cotton Candy – the Sugar Twins, Naughty Nurse Hellina Handbasket and the wholesome Rosemary Spice. Peek a Boo! will also feature: Rip Strongman and Torn Buffman – as the Mexican Wrestlers, the ever so sweet Frutti La Tarte, The lovely female impersonator Tatiana Nicholiadina, and The infamous antics of Buffalo Boy!

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."
