The Poetry Burlesque: Valentine's Special

Featuring over 10 unique acts! Including poetry, dance, drag, live music, and comedy. This is an immersive experience including interactive performance, audience games and access to a cash bar, all in an intimate setting ;)

This Valentine's Special will be a Formal Affair, which means we encourage everyone to dress up in their fanciest outfits and/or classic burlesque attire! But as always, you are welcome to disregard the theme and wear whatever makes you feel comfortable and confident in your own skin.

The Poetry Elf is performing at Kelowna's Taste of Fringe!

Fringe is for renegades, for the brave, for the adventurous. Fringe is for the curious. Fringe is for Kelowna.

On Saturday, September 22, curious, adventure-seeking renegades will descend on the Rotary Centre for the Arts as we pull back the curtain and reveal A Taste of Fringe. For one night only, we will welcome two award-winning artists to share their fun and eclectic work with an exclusive audience. In the iconic words of R. Kelly, “After the show it’s the after party” and we’ll throw open the doors to the chicest party, featuring a cornucopia of live performances scattered throughout the R.C.A. along with libations and fun times with your fellow rebels.
