The Empire Strips Back: A Burlesque Parody performance on Friday 20 August has been rescheduled to Thursday 20 January 2022 at 8pm due to travel restrictions. We’ve contacted ticketholders with details. If you have any questions, please email CanberraTicketing@act.gov.au or call 02 6275 2700.
2022 marks the 11 year anniversary of The Empire Strips Back so we have decided to put on a very special anniversary tour for our fans, old and new! The Empire Strips Back has been packing out Australian theatres since 2011, when it opened in Sydney in a 100-seat venue and swiftly became a word-of-mouth phenomenon, touring both nationally and internationally over the last 11 years. For the many that missed out on previous tours be prepared for some seriously sexy Stormtroopers, a dangerously seductive Boba Fett, some tantalising Twi'leks, a delightfully luke-warm Taun Taun, a lady-like Skywalker, the Droids you are looking for, and much, much more! Get your tickets now and come along to celebrate everything Star Wars… and the removal of clothing…
