This past October, Cybil and Fedoroff joined creative forces to produce a series of monthly Monday night cabaret shows at the Nevada Theater in downtown Nevada City.
The idea for a monthly cabaret show came from a desire to provide entertainment for locals in the service industry who worked on weekends and had few week-night options for getting out and having some fun. Going out on a quiet Monday—where parking is plentiful—quickly caught on.
Truth or Dare Productions, Cybil’s company, is known for extravagant and glamorous entertainment. Ms. Unrest explains, “I’ve been dancing and teaching dance for most of my life. Burlesque let’s me bring something fun, exciting and different to the stage—and bring exceptional talent to Nevada County.”
Fedoroff, who brings his classic old-school magic to the stage, is also the show’s master of ceremonies and occasionally, he performs as part of the dance ensemble. According to Fedoroff, “Truth or Dare acts encompass anything from funny and satirical, to sexy and charming. Our shows range from steamy and provocative to downright silly and hilarious. All the shows are performed with class and sass, all for the audience’s enjoyment. “
First used during the Victorian era to describe a type of theater that used parody featuring women known for revealing an ankle or wrist, risqué at the time. The format evolved to include acrobats, comedians, magicians and musicians. Truth or Dare brings all that to the stage and more. There’s a different theme for each month and each bawdy and slightly risqué show brings in new talent.
The line-up for 2019 promises a series of sold-out performances and raucous shows with Monday revelry that would make any weekend blush.
The theme for February’s Monday Cabaret is “Be My Valentine’s Sweetheart.” Start your Valentine’s week off by taking yourself and all of your loved ones to a night where you’ll laugh, scream, hoot and holler as you get into the true Valentine’s spirit – no hallmark card required.
Cocktails crafted by the Golden Era Lounge will be served in the lobby at 7 p.m. Doors and music begin promptly at 7:30 p.m. At 8 p.m. the real fun begins with sensationally sexy acts and naughty fun featuring burlesque and cabaret dancers.
Tickets for every Monday Cabaret can be purchased online at Tiny.CC/MondayCabaret, or at the door for $25 ($20 in advance).
Show is ages 21+
