Burlesque!

Burlesque

On the afternoon of my debut as a bartender at Hot Tin Roof, I met a member of The Bottom Line Burlesque & Comedy Troupe, who was having her nails done next to me. Turns out she was dancing at the same charity event. Sadly, I missed her performance that night because I couldn’t leave my place at the bar. From the laughs and  applause, it sounds like everyone had a roaring good time.

Here is some information provided by Ruby Martini about the creative, energetic, and giving ladies of the Bottom Line Burlesque Dance & Comedy Troupe.

The Bottom Line Burlesque & Comedy Troupe is a Hillsborough-based, all volunteer Community Performance Troupe that was founded in 2012 by Hillsborough resident, Ruby Martini.

The Mission of this talented, sassy, fun group of men and women is to align with Non-profit organizations and assist them with their fund-raising events.  The primary alignment for Bottom Line Burlesque & Comedy Troupe is The UNC Center of Excellence for Eating Disorders, (https://www.med.unc.edu/psych/eatingdisorders)  for whom the Troupe holds an annual fund-raiser.  2016 brings a Habitat for Humanity fund-raiser on board, our annual UNC CEED show,  as well as two shows at Common Ground Theatre to support Marketing Missions for the Troupe.  More dates will continue to be added.

This Troupe of performers welcomes and embraces diversity – not only within the Troupe, but in the causes they support and their enthusiastic audiences.  Most of the Troupe members fall into one of two categories;  those who performed at “younger” ages and now miss the stage, or those who always wanted to perform but were perhaps too bashful or never had an opportunity.  The Bottom Line Burlesque welcomes anyone who is interested in performing, singing, dancing, providing make up or back stage support.  If you are interested in learning more, get in touch with Ruby Martini.  She will invite you to come to a rehearsal so you can feel the energy, the synergy that makes this Troupe so successful!

 The Troupe is always open to helping Non-profits with their fund-raising efforts, as well as community groups with theirs.   You can find more information, including performance dates and photo shoots on Facebook at this link.  If you or anyone you know is involved with a non-profit that would like fundraising assistance from this fun, sassy Troupe, please contact Ruby Martini at Thebottomline@bellsouth.net.
