Déjà Louve Presents: A Vaudeville Extravaganza
Queen City Burlesque Expo has transformed from a weekend celebration of the Vaudeville Arts into a production house with multiple shows, big and small, throughout the East & West Kootenays of British Columbia.
In a National Survey held by Imperial Burlesque Canada, we have been twice voted by our peers in the Top 5 for Best Canadian Burlesque Productions. Featured in local, national and international articles, news pieces, and interviews, our goal is always to celebrate and share in the joy of burlesque.
Our 2024 Season has us branching out into collaborative projects with local Draglesque Extraordinaire, LBee, under the name Hard Leather Honey, and polishing our show format for the 5th Annual QCBE Weekender, and our 2nd annual Heavy Metal Burlesque show, Pretty / Wreckless.
Looking ahead, our 2025 Season has us teaming up with even more theatres for high caliber presentations, and with local producers to bring you special presentations such as Once More, With Feeling: A Variety Show Fundraiser for Mental Health Awareness, a co-production with The Real Green Fairy and Rosy Ripples.
Mission Statement – QCBE Projects invigorate audiences, nurture healthy connections, and deliver extraordinary entertainment, lifelong learning, and shared experiences within communities across the East & West Kootenays.
Vision – To enrich, entertain, and inspire our communities, our guests, and our team through world-renowned and community-based programming in beloved gathering spaces.
Executive Profiles – Visit The Team page to learn more about the people who keep the magic alive, year round.
