Rock Candy Burlesque is a neo-burlesque performance troupe in Olympia, Washington. We are performers from all walks of life, who celebrate our diverse creative and cultural backgrounds through art and movement- and we all have a love of the stage and a desire for the burlesque flair. We draw on our talents to present acts from classic to comic, feminine to gender bending, classy to raunchy, and sultry to energetic. Our audiences are regularly titillated, surprised, amused, and shocked by what we bring to the stage!

Olympia is an artistic town; we have been embraced by our community and supported as our shows continue to dazzle audiences. Rock Candy works hard to produce entertaining shows that offer a variety of talents and styles to the city we call home. To reflect our diverse stage experience, in addition to burlesque you may also see a drag king or queen, belly dance, singing, or tap dancing.  Rock Candy Burlesque also produces Tassel Tuesday, the only monthly Burlesque and Variety revue show in the Olympia area.

The performers of Rock Candy are an active part of the local burlesque community. Members of Rock Candy have been featured at shows in Olympia, Centralia, Portland and Seattle, such as Hump Day Extravaganza, Frightful Delights, Behind the Blue Door: A Doctor Who Inspired Cabaret, Minxes of Middle Earth, Lord Franzannian’s Royal Olympian Spectacular Vaudeville Show, Femmetasia, Repeal Prohibition Day, and the Oregon Burlesque Festival.

We are very grateful for all our audience members who continue to show their support and attend our shows. Without all of you, we could not continue to enjoy ourselves performing our hearts out! Thank you Olympia and the South Puget Sound!
