April 19, 2019, Friday - 3rd Annual Pink and White Ball at The Lab (2 nights)

Time: Doors 7pm | Show & Silent Auction 8pm - 11pm

Location: The Lab Theater, 700 First Street N

3rd Annual Pink and White Ball

The STARS align at The Lab Theater for two fabulous nights of delight! Marquee burlesque, drag, live music and variety entertainers of the Twin Cities and beyond are coming together to throw a benefit for Planned Parenthood Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota Action Fund (PPMNS).

Organizers are thrilled to welcome this year's headliners, Kitten N' Lou. Voted the #1 Burlesque Duo in the World in 2015, and in the Top 10 “Most Influential Performers of the Decade” (21st Century Burlesque), this “camp, show-stopping couple” (The UK Daily Mail) uses burlesque, drag, dance and theater to make performance that has been described as “the wacky love child of vaudeville and club drag” (Australian Stage 2016), “polished, clever, and glamorous” (Dita Von Teese), and “GENIUS” (The Huffington Post). Known for their signature brand of highly choreographed comedic camp extravaganzas, this brash and dazzling duo has seduced audiences across the globe, headlining festivals such as the Helsinki Burlesque Festival, Viva Las Vegas and, of course, the 2017 Minneapolis Burlesque Festival.

This weekend-long extravaganza features two unique and thrilling showcases, a silent auction with a range of items from local and national vendors, workshops taught by visiting superstars and the trademark excellence you've come to expect from the team at Elektra Cute Presents!
