Rosie Bitts brings her solo show

Cumberland gets a Bitts risqué

Rosie Bitts brings her show to the Waverley Hotel on Feb. 12

Come for a night of sexy burlesque, rollicking banter and Rosie’s signature sensual blues.

Rosie Bitts, is a performer, producer, author and educator and one of the pioneers who brought the art form of burlesque to Vancouver Island.

She brings her show to the Waverley Hotel on Feb. 12

She was a co-founder of the award-winning Cheesecake Burlesque Revue and performed in and helped produce many of their shows during her tenure (2006-2008). She was the first burlesque teacher on Vancouver Island and has since taught her class “Learn to Love Your Jiggly Bitts” to hundreds of women from Campbell River to Victoria, and has now added “The Art of Sexy” and “The Passion Talks: Make Your Art Your Business”, a business course for artists. As well as teaching locally, Rosie has also been a guest teacher at BurlyCon Seattle (North America’s only burlesque education convention).

Rosie started her production company, Best Bitts Productions (co-owned with Bruce Blake), in 2008, and has since toured Vancouver Island with her popular shows “The Bitts of Tease Cabaret” and “Brand New Boobies” (a show of new work and new performers), often bringing headliners from all over North America to further titillate and educate her audience. In 2011, Rosie combined her love of theatre, music and burlesque to create her first solo show, “The Fabulous Miss Rosie Bitts”, which she brings to Cumberland this week. Tickets are $17 advance/ $20 door. For advance tickets go to the hotel or go to www.cumberlandvillageworks.com.
