What a WEEK ONE with all the sold out shows at Hale's Palladium and the unforgettable experience of the Kamikaze FireFlies audience surfing in giant plastic bubbles, as well as the fantastic variété and aerial performances that left audiences amazed.
Now we move on to WEEK TWO of the festival with the continuation of Variété shows at Hales Palladium starting again Wednesday night March 21st (which is a regular festival show with the proceeds going to benefit the Fremont Arts Council).
Libertease Burlesque and variété shows also open at a second brand new venue for the Moisture Festival at the Broadway Performance Hall on Friday March 23rd with two burlesque shows Friday and two burlesque shows Saturday night March 24th at 7:30pm and 10:30pm and a variété show matinee on Sunday March 25th at 3pm. We are thrilled to be coming to the Capitol Hill neighborhood for the first time with the 2012 festival. Burlesque shows in a great theater on Capitol Hill would appear to be a perfect match. Lots of tickets remain for these shows although they tend to sellout quickly. So buy your tickets early
