A Book Club Burlesque inspired by “The Berenstain Bears Forget Their Manners.”
Calling all bears, artists and performers: musicians, dancers, circus, variety, burlesque performers, film makers, puppeteers, piano players, drag queens, installation artists, photographers, actors, freaks, the bizarre, strange, and subversive
We highly recommended that you read the book because this IS a BOOK CLUB.
The goals for our Book Club Burlesque events are to :
1. promote literacy;
2. showcase unique talent; and
3. Have SEXY FUN!
If these things are important to you then come join the collective!
This is a great opportunity for artists to create. We encourage our artists to fully bring their own creativity to their pieces.
