Synopsis

You are cordially invited to a gender-bending, fire-breathing, tassel-twirling, post-punk rock 'n roll prom. The new girl in school is thrown into a topsy-turvy madhouse of high school hellcats. The cheerleaders are drag queens, the nerds are nymphomaniacs, the punks breathe fire, and the prom band is none other than queer-post-punk phenomenon Triple Creme. Starring the best of New York burlesque, including Murray Hill, Julie Atlas Muz, Tigger, Scarlet Sinclair, Molly the Dolly, and Scotty the Blue Bunny.
