Debbie Does Dallas
Nearly Naked 14-15
Debbie Does Dallas
WHEN PEOPLE THINK "DEBBIE DOES DALLAS", THEY THINK "MUSICAL THEATRE", RIGHT? The most important theatrical event of the twenty-first century! Or not. Debbie Does Dallas is a modern morality tale told as a comic musical of tragic proportions in the language of the rodeo-porno-football circus. Based on the 1970s "blue movie" of the same name, the story follows Debbie Benton, an all-American, small-town sweetheart on her coming-of-age quest to realize her dream... to become a Texas Cowboys Cheerleader! The only thing standing in her way is the bus fare to Dallas and the inequity of her minimum wage job. So Debbie and her friends form Teen Services! A small company willing to take on BIG jobs. Debbie Does Dallas manages to have it all: beauty, brains and a great sense of humor! Recommended for hopelessly immature adults only!

Two actors, two pianos and many, many characters grace the stage as fifteen years of learning the art of piano playing unfolds. From classical to pops to jazz, the play provides the chance for two performers to give their all in a virtuoso performance.

Joining this love triangle on board the luxury liner are Public Enemy #13, Moonface Martin and his sidekick-in-crime Erma.

Attendees will enjoy dazzling cabaret acts, saucy dance numbers, vaudeville variety, comedy skits, and tantalizing burlesque, all in the elegant Phoenix Theatre’s Hormel Theatre. The venue is near Central Avenue and the downtown area with ample restaurants and eateries for patrons to grab a nosh before the 3-act

Since the beginning in 2007, fans have always enjoyed dressing up in costumes that fit the theme or in apparel of by gone eras. Corsets and thigh highs, swing dresses and petticoats, zoot suits and spats are some of the saucy fashions you’ll see in the audience. Some show numbers even include willing audience participants, so attendees should look their best if attending this soiree.

Due to the nature of Romantasy Cabaret’s themes and material, the show is for adults 18 and up. There is also a full bar for those patrons 21 and up.

Romantasy Cabaret urges advance purchase of tickets as shows tend to sell out the week prior to the show.

It asks us to imagine if the wickedness of humanity is our own fault, and if anyone can find some sympathy... for the Devil. 

The History of the Devil is intended for mature audiences only, containing adult themes, language and nudity.
