The Shimmy Showdown is presented to you by Van Ella Productions, a company known for its high class stage spectacles and touring productions, including the Show Me Burlesque and Vaudeville Festival, The Van Ella Bordella, The Big Gay* Soiree and many others. In its 9th year, The Shimmy Showdown has become a hilarious and ridiculous counterpart to traditional burlesque pageants and competitions and has gained international notability for its unique and original take on the genre.

Will I have an assigned seat?
The seating at these venues are open, and seats are on a first come first serve basis, so we recommend arriving early for the most seat options. There will be a separate seating area during the Shimmy Showdown and A Night of Stars for VIP ticket holders.

Do I need to purchase a separate ticket for the Van Ella Bordella after party?
If you have purchased a Weekend Pass or a ticket to A Night of Stars, you do NOT need to purchase anything additional to get in to the after party. If your ticket was for the Shimmy Showdown or you only wish to attend the after party, you will need to purchase a separate Van Ella Bordella ticket.

Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?
This event is for ages 21+

How can I contact the organizer with any questions?
Please email VanEllaTickets@gmail.com with any questions.

What is the refund policy?
Tickets are non-refundable, including no shows. If you are unable to attend, you are able to transfer your ticket via Eventbrite, or by emailing vanellatickets@gmail.com

Burlyeoke: You Sing, We Strip! 
Wednesday January 22nd
Emerald Room at The Monocle :: St. Louis, MO

Join us on the 4th Wednesday of every month for St. Louis' favorite night of karaoke, BURLYEOKE where you sing while we strip from 8pm-midnight. It's the only show of its kind and once you see it, it will become your favorite Wednesday of the month!

Tickets are $5 CASH at the door. Sing your heart out while we strip!

Featuring BiBi Dazzle and Allura Fette!

Here's how it works:
- Show up when you want (this isn't a "sit-down and watch" kind of show)
- Submit your name and song to sing (karaoke etiquette, per usual)
- It's karaoke time from 8-9:30pm!
- Around 9:30 we'll randomly select a name/song and draw a performer's name out of a hat (or maybe out of a glove)
- Then IMPROV HILARITY ensues -- you sing while we dance
- After the performers have a turn, it's back to regular 'ole karaoke
- Around 10:30, we repeat for round 2
- Close out the night with even more... you guessed it! KARAOKE!

Produced by Dolly G Whiz Productions in association with The Monocle!
