THE FABULOUS MISS Rosie Bitts presents an Evening of Burlesque and Cabaret Performance on June 22 at the Waverley Hotel.

During the day, Rosie Bitts is a demure housewife and mother, but by night she is a bawdy yet glamorous burlesque starlet, producer, teacher and pinup model.

Known as the Libido of Burlesque‚ and named a Notable Canadian Woman by the National Post, Rosie’s performance has been called “the real deal and the whole package, a smart performer with a killer routine” by award-winning author Cherrie Priest.

Rosie, aka Trinda Reed, is the founder of Best Bitts Productions‚ and is bringing her popular show The Bitts of Tease Cabaret back to Cumberland this Saturday.

Rosie’s Bitts of Tease Cabaret is in the genre of an old-school cabaret and burlesque show. There are beautiful girls performing both neo and classic burlesque, an MC poking fun at social conventions and naughty jazz and blues sung by Miss Rosie Bitts.

The show is headlined by multi-award-winning performer, producer, writer and singer Miss Rosie Bitts and Neo Burlesque darling Vava Vunderbust and will introduce two new burlesque starlets and dancers Chasity Twist and Delilah D’lish.

Rosie is known for her racy shows and this one will have mature themes and partial nudity.

She was the first burlesque teacher on Vancouver Island and has since taught classes to hundreds of women from Campbell River to Victoria.

Through her production company, Best Bitts Productions (co-owned with Bruce Blake), Rosie produces a number of shows including The Bitts of Tease Cabaret, Brand New Boobies and her newest endeavour Fresh from the Sexy Factory. She produces cutting-edge and often-controversial shows.

In 2011, Rosie combined her love of theatre, music and burlesque to create The Fabulous Miss Rosie Bitts, which she presented at the Winnipeg, Victoria and Nanaimo Fringe Festivals, receiving a Jenny Award in Winnipeg, a Pick of the Fringe for Best Solo Show in Victoria and a Monday Magazine Award for Favourite New Production of 2011.

Rosie has performed all over North America and has been taught by many top burlesque performers. She is a keynote speaker and speaks on subjects from Releasing Your Inner Diva to Getting Your Sexy Back After Kids.Rosie is also an active fundraiser and advocates in the community for local and international causes.
