Burlesque troupe on stage tonight

Leave your kids at home tonight for the first burlesque show performed by Sitka’s Ramshackle Cabaret. There will be more than 20 performers, and all proceeds go to Planned Parenthood. It’s at Allen Hall on the Sheldon Jackson College campus. Doors open at 7:30pm and the show starts at 9pm. Food is donated by the Larkspur and free of charge, but be sure to bring cash for wine and beer, along with your ID that shows you’re 21 or older, and a warm jacket, in case it’s a little drafty.
