Romp Riot: A New Kind of Burlesque Show at the Haven Underground

Imagine coming to Nevada city for the first time. You ask some friendly locals what the nightlife is like. Now, if this happened only 10 years ago, the answer might’ve been something like, “not much happens at night,” but today it’s a much different story. These friendly locals tell you about an underground music venue — that’s literally underground — and tonight there’s a show! You head down the dark staircase to the thudding of the music below to find a recently renovated venue with a full bar, brand new sound system, a killer DJ lineup… and there’s a Burlesque show that’s about to start. You stop for a moment to thank your lucky stars that you met those friendly locals, then you head out onto the dance floor for a night to remember.

Truth or Dare Productions has been bringing Nevada County the best in burlesque, cabaret, and stage entertainment for the better part of 6 years and we would like to invite you to our newest collaboration which will combine captivating burlesque, DJ’s, dance, magic, and interactive art in an intimate setting. We are geared up to bring you themed Dance Party Events. Dubbed “Romp Riot!” Truth Or Dare Productions has teamed up with Haven Theater (formerly Haven Underground) to bring Nevada County’s dance and party scene a monthly place to let loose! The dynamic duo, Nick Fedoroff and Cybil Unrest, saw a missing element in the county’s nightlife… a place to dance all night with your friends for a reasonable price. Noticing that they themselves wanted a fun, clean venue that you could come to for a dance party with DJ’s, go-go dancers, interactive art, cocktails (yes, the Haven now has a full bar), and an electric atmosphere. With a huge cherry-on-top, you get to keep dancing into the night after last call and leave with money in your pocket. It’s a win – win.

Friends, Haven is the perfect venue in Nevada City to host an all-night dance party. Truth or Dare will be bringing the entertainment, music, and some surprises to Haven and you will experience an exciting, fun, and memorable dance night. Haven will provide signature cocktails, drink specials, and their rocking sound system. Truth or Dare will kick off the night with their signature burlesque show madness followed by DJ’s that will keep the party dancing and singing to sweet tunes that complement the nights theme. “90’s Neon vs 70’s Disco!”  Bust out your finest neon accouterments for the black lights and a big splash of sequins to match the disco ball!
