Burlesque troupe Mod Carousel returns to San Juan Island

Submitted by Isle Seat Theatre

Burlesque is back in Friday Harbor to entertain residents with a new show.

“Oui Oui” is an evening of tantalizing tease and talent that will surely brighten those mid-winter doldrums. The 2017 local performance was an all-out hit, definitely leaving the audience wanting more.

A previous audience member once called Mod Carousel “the most fun you can have on the island without getting arrested!”

Mod Carousel is a Seattle-based “boylesque” troupe composed of the immeasurably talented Paris Original, Trojan Original (who will be joining after missing last year’s performance), the Luminous Pariah, and Moscato Extatique.

Paris Original and Trojan Original are no strangers to the islands, having performed at San Juan Community Theatre in “La Danse de la Mer’s Winter Carnivale” for the past six years. Mod Carousel will be joined by Jovie DeVore, known for her on-stage vivacity, infectious smile, and campy brand of humor.

All highly trained artists, Mod Carousel offers what is sure to be an unforgettable evening of dance, comedy, glamour, and world-class playful striptease.

Mod Carousel has performed continuously since their founding in 2010. With over 50 international shows in Europe and Australia and countless U.S. performances under their belts, these remarkable entertainers show no signs of stopping their antics anytime soon.

Join Mod Carousel for any of three performances offered at 8:30 p.m., Friday, January 12 and 6:30 p.m. and 9 p.m., Saturday, Jan. 13.
