Background Info: For those of you who are unaware, our beloved Kale Brown (the Burlesque Wednesdays door-person-turned-stage-manager extraordinaire) is agender and pursuing top surgery in the coming months. They have been a die hard fan and supporter of burlesque in Ottawa for years, quickly becoming an iconic figure in audiences, backstage, or taking your money at shows around the city. As such, Rhapsody and Cameron are teaming up to put on a very special edition of Burlesque Wednesdays to help them cover as much of the expenses as possible. This fabulous fundraiser has been titled “Treasure Chest” as a nod to both top surgery and the fact that Kale is an absolute treasure of a human being. If you would like more details you can find Kale’s GoFundMe here: https://www.gofundme.com/kale039s-top-surgery-fund .
Doors are at 7pm, show starts at 8pm.
Tickets are PWYC before 8pm, $14 after 8pm.
The Bourbon Room has about 6 medium steps to get into the venue and the bathrooms inside are down a flight of stairs. The Bourbon Room has accommodated patrons with wheelchairs in the past via a side entrance with a ramp and a small folding ramp once inside to access the main level, however the bathrooms are still inaccessible and we recognize the situation is not ideal so we don’t list it as an accessible venue. There is an accessible Second Cup across the street with a bathroom on the main level and ADO at the main entrance, however their bathroom does not have an ADO. Usually the shows are standing room however we are more than happy to arrange and reserve seats for anyone who needs them, no questions asked- patrons can email email@example.com to arrange this, or pm the event. We are willing and happy to make any accommodations we can!
