In 2003 a small group of friends got together with a simple goal – to figure out how to entertain themselves on Monday nights. What started as a simple project has, over the last 10 years, developed into one of the largest and most influential Burlesque troupes in the world today.

Screaming Chicken Theatrical Society has produced well over 200 shows.  They co-founded the Vancouver International Burlesque Festival, one of the largest and longest running events in the burlesque world. They have introduced many performers to the stage, been twice nominated for Best Group by Burlesque Hall of Fame in Last Vegas and helped raise money for various charities as well as being a driving force behind Vancouver’s thriving burlesque scene.

This Saturday, June 29th, the ‘Chickens’ will be celebrating their 10 year anniversary with a spectacular show at the Wise Hall, 1882 Adanac Street.  The three act show will feature favorite numbers from throughout their history and representing all aspects of the company’s performances. This will include tributes to their first production, the R-rated ‘Game Show Night’, their theatrical productions ‘Ed Wood’s Orgy of the Dead’, ‘Sex, Violence and Nursery Rhymes’, ‘SHINE – A Burlesque Musical’, ‘Grease Does Greece’, ‘Terror at Rock Out Beach’, and ‘Oliver Fannie’, the graduation recitals for their ‘Becoming Burlesque’ and ‘Becoming Boylesque’ programs and their flagship ‘Taboo Revue Burlesque Variety Show’. The show will also feature special guests including many of the early alumni and long time friends such as Cass King of the legendary Wet Spots.

Screaming Chicken Theatrical Society is a volunteer run not-for-profit organization and all ticket proceeds go to the continued development and presentation of burlesque in Vancouver and around the world. 5% of all ticket sales go directly to the Burlesque Hall of Fame to support the preservation of the art forms history. The doors open at 8:00 p.m. The show gets under way at 9:00 p.m.  Tickets are $15.00 and available from BrownPaperTickets.com.
