This Halloween season, Honey Rider, the founder of Campbell River’s very own Rider Die Burlesque, is back to give you “Girls Girls Ghouls Part II.”

After four successful sold-out shows, Rider Die Burlesque is eager to reveal its forthcoming Halloween burlesque and variety show, which is sure to captivate audiences like never before.

“We are excited to be presenting a format that is unlike anything else Campbell River has seen,” says Rider, “we are showcasing a true variety show which includes dance, burlesque, comedy, aerial acts and a fire performer! Absolute entertainment from minute one.”

The stage will be set ablaze by a diverse group of local performers ranging in age from their 20s to 50s, with a few special guest performers joining from Tofino, Parksville and the Comox Valley.

“The amount of talent we have locally is quite staggering,” remarks Rider. “ It’s part of what makes this show so special. Ordinary people, doing extraordinary things.

“These performers are your neighbours, hairdressers, insurance agents and your nurses!”

During the show you can expect to see movie characters both old and new, from silly to scary!

Featuring Local Performers:

Sarah “Sugar Cane” Cain, a multitalented flow artist and self taught fire spinner;

Kelly “Delilah Flame” Senko, an O.R. nurse by day whose passion for burlesque burns bright in every spirited act she performs.

After the success of last year’s sold-out Halloween show at The Rivercity Stage, Rider Die wanted to open their show to a larger audience, and they’ve also upped the ante by adding a DJ dance party on Saturday night to keep the party going after the burlesque show ends. DJ Sean “MrMac” Macmillan will be putting a spell on party goers from 10 p.m. to 1 a.m.

It will be two nights of entertainment - on Friday night, indulge in the thrilling burlesque and variety show, or join us on Saturday night for the show followed by the DJ Dance party to dance your night away. Saturday night ticket holders will also have access to safe ride services provided by the Eagles. Ensuring everyone enjoys their night out to the fullest, worry free.

The visionary behind Rider Die Burlesque, Morgan “Honey Rider” McKee, is exuberant about this year’s show.

“Halloween is my favourite time of year and I really wanted to share that magic with as many people as possible,” says McKee. “You can expect a night of entertainment that will both thrill you and tease you from start to finish.”

Other highlights include a free photo booth provided by North Island Photo Booth, a costume contest with prizes for best dressed and more!
