BURLESQUE dance and music from Glee will feature in the Burnie production First There is Desire .
The Encore Performing Arts Studio show forms part of the month-long Burnie Shines celebrations.
First There is Desire director Katy Pakinga said the show was a Uni-Revue style performance, with comedy, singing, dancing and tongue-in-cheek humour.
``It is a parody of the cartoon Family Guy ,'' Pakinga said.
``It is a bit of a mix-up, but if you don't like what you see in one section, it will be over within three minutes and the next will start.''
Pakinga said the show also featured burlesque dance.
``It is the art of tease. You do take your clothes off but you could do burlesque with just the removal of one glove, and it would be done in a tasteful, sexy way.
``One of the scenes we have is a 1950s' pin-up girl, and she is baking a cake and spills it on herself.
``Anyone that doesn't mind a bit of cheekiness should come along to the show.''
Burnie Shines organiser Jenny Cox said First There is Desire embodied the community spirit that Burnie Shines sought to create.
``People travel long distances to come and see the attractions - it makes the community a stronger place,'' Ms Cox said.
First There is Desire will be shown at the Burnie Arts and Function Centre on October 11, 12, 18 and 19 at 7.30pm.
