"I haven't laughed so hard in ages." -- Sunday London Times.

It is the 40th anniversary of the airing of the Star Wars Holiday Special! And time, once again, at The Home For Wayward Girls and Fallen Women for the annual viewing of Cherry’s favorite TV show. This year, George Lucas joins us (played by guest star Andy Ross). He claims he is there because, as he has often said, "If I had the time and a sledgehammer, I would track down every copy of that show and smash it."  But for someone who hates it so much, he seems to revel in singing all the songs! Could it be that he secretly loves the show as much as Cherry does?

It is a brand new show, and a brand new script! And we have even found new terrorizing clips to show you.

Like this one:

Hosted by Handsome Brad and Cherry Pitz.

With performances by Bimini Cricket, Brief Sweat, Candy Apples, Erika Rodgers, Fem Appeal, Luna Lee, Miranda Raven, Rosie Cheeks and Venatrix.

Featuring guest star Andy Ross.

If you have not seen The Star Wars Holiday Special, then you have not seen special guest star Bea Arthur sing and dance with the space alien bar patrons from the Tatooine Cantina, (here is a clip- The Star Wars Holiday Special was quite possibly the worst holiday special ever conceived.  It is literally Star Wars meets The Carol Burnett Show and it stars the cast of the original Star Wars trilogy Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher & Harrison Ford (they were under contract and couldn’t get out of it) and was written by the staff writers of The Carol Burnett show, featuring special guest stars Harvey Korman, Bea Arthur, Art Carney, The Jefferson Starship and a cast of fur suited character actors as Chewbacca’s family.  It is chock full of WTF moments, such as Carrie Fisher singing and even includes Wookie-porn. We promise to show you the best (we mean the worst) bits.

Ten years ago, Cherry Pitz and Joe the Shark partnered up to produce Hotsy Totsy Burlesque and it’s been a fabulous ride! We play to often sold-out shows and our dedicated fans gleefully follow the soap opera that is Hotsy Totsy often declaring after each performance, “That was best show you folks have ever done!” As performers and writers we have grown as a troupe and as friends and are happy to move into our 11th year looking forward to the rhinestones, glitter and mayhem the next 10 years shall bring!

Every month you are invited to The Home For Wayward Girls and Fallen Women. The residents of the home need money to keep their hotel open and to buy G-strings and glitter. Sadly, the shows have had their technical difficulties and in the past they have had to combat Daleks, Darth Vader, The Borg, Zombies, Network Censors, Evil from other dimensions and He Who Should Not Be Named! The ladies promise you beautiful, clothing-averse women, lots of laughs, spinning tassels, and flying underpants. So join us for Hotsy Totsy Burlesque at The Home For Wayward Girls and Fallen Women where the motto is "We've fallen, we can't get up, and we like it that way!

“All-encompassing in its nod to vaudeville, the show is high on craft. And while it carries history's torch of old school stage entertainment, Hotsy Totsy slips in a message for our times, that "the geek shall inherit the earth." – The Edge
