‘Tis the season to eat, drink, and be merry at Can Can Cabaret. Like sexy, white snowflakes, dancers deck the hall and swing from chandeliers in the fourth annual installment of Can Can’s “Wonderland” a carnival of dance, theatre, and music.
Underneath Pike Place Market, theatre and cabaret meet in an intimate speakeasy setting, evocative of Paris at the turn of the 20th Century. Can Can’s theatre has been transformed into a whimsical winter chalet. Expect strobe light effects, glitter galore, dance, comedy, acrobatics and sexy, over-the-top displays of artistry.
There are no dress codes, but Can Can folks love it when you dress with imagination and chic fashion. Let’s just say, speakeasy couture. If you bring cash, you will even have an opportunity to tip the dancers throughout the show and at the end of the performance.
“Wonderland,” an original cabaret production, features Can Can’s Company of performers in a celebration of the nostalgia and glad cheer of yesteryear. The dancers perform to the Pete King Orchestra and local band Prom Queen. You’ll also hear throwback showtunes that ring out with laughter, togetherness, and holiday revelry. Best of all, the entertainment unfolds while the audience dines on a market fresh menu of seasonal favorites and a choice of festive libations
Can Can’s creative team presents several shows a year, and each one showcases new scenic designs, choreography, costumes, and music. As always, the weekend matiness of “Wonderland” are family-friendly for kids of all ages, with a fresh cast, choreography, and an all new brunch menu.
You’ve probably seen the Can Can dancers at Seattle Theatres or with local dance companies.
