The burlesque troupe Naughty and Spice is unwrapping the Christmas presents early.

The troupe is hosting a Christmas themed burlesque show and dance at the Cambie Friday (Dec. 14). Doors open at 9 p.m. and the show starts at 10 p.m.

The show is also a benefit event for the Loaves and Fishes food bank and people are encouraged to bring a non-perishable food item to donate.

“The troupe hadn’t done a Christmas Show in two years and the girls were itching to put together some new holiday themed material,” said Roxee Lee, a founding member of the troupe in a press release.

The holiday show features special guests including former troupe member Nymh Fete, and two members from Hot Mama’s Burlesque, a new Cowichan Valley troupe.

After the burlesque performance people can dance to the rockabilly hits of Dead Man’s Trio.

Tickets are $10 in advance and are available at the Cambie, www.naughtyandspice burlesque.com, or $15 at the door. Partial proceeds from every ticket sold will be donated to Loaves and Fishes and people who bring non-perishable food donations will recieve a ticket to win prizes.
