The Bride has escaped from Dr Frankenstein's lab, unfinished and with a few wires loose!
This spectacular stilt dancing routine sees the 9 foot tall Bride fight to take control of herself. Hypnotising, dark and beautiful, a perfect tribute to the classic1930's Universal Picture.
Missy Malone is a heady cocktail of 1950’s bombshell and classic rock chick. A highly accomplished and sought-after performer on the UK burlesque scene who has performed internationally and has graced the cover of several publications and campaigns.
Missy has shared the bill with some of burlesque's top names including Kitten De Ville, Dirty Martini, Kitten on the Keys, Mimi Le Meaux and Immodesty Blaize. Missy appears regularly in a variety of extravaganzas including the likes of The Candy Box in Birmingham, Vegas! Edinburgh, Torture Garden Events in London and in festivals such as the "Summer Jamboree","High Rockabilly" and "Rhythm Riot". Missy has performed worldwide and visited countries such as Italy, Sweden, Switzerland, Holland, Ireland, Finland, Jersey, Spain, India and France.
Terrifyingly, Missy will be bringing her super BRIDE OF FRANKENSTEIN routine to Newcastle this October!
With her enchanting smile, feline grace, marshmallow skin and retro-vamp style, performers rarely get more intriguing than Leyla Rose.
A champion gymnast and dancer in her childhood, Leyla gathered a lifetime of performance experience in a variety of fields, including nine years as a sought after bellydancer, before evolving into a wickedly voluptuous and charismatic burlesque artist. She is now well established in the upper echelons of the UK burlesque scene, performing at prestigious events such as The Candy Box in Birmingham and the Torture Garden and more.
She frequently performs in major cities abroad and has starred in shows and festivals in Milan, Stockholm, Paris, New York, Rome and Helsinki, sharing the bill with some of burlesque's top names such as Dirty Martini, Immodesty Blaize, Kitten on the Keys, World Famous *BOB* and Kitten De Ville.
She has fronted advertising campaigns for retro clothing designer Vivien of Holloway, appearing in high profile magazines such as Harpers Bazaar and has been featured in famous publications such as Q Magazine and Playboy in both Italy and France.
Leyla will appear as Vampira in a tribute to the horror goddess herself AND will appear as the psychotic sidekick of Missy Malone's Bride of Frankenstein.
