When the space opera “Star Wars: A New Hope” premiered in 1977, its creators and fans had no idea it would evolve into a worldwide phenomenon. Since first taking the public to “a galaxy far, far away,” this film series has inspired numerous sequels, merchandise, visual art and songs. In recent years, the “Star Wars” craze has even cited May 4 (“May the Fourth be with you”) as a pseudo-holiday for sci-fi enthusiasts.

In celebration of this “holiday,” local burlesque troupe Camellia Bay Burlesque will be providing a sultry evening filled with sexy, sci-fi dance numbers inspired by “Star Wars.”

This sensual sci-fi display will feature a lineup of talented dancers dropping costumes to the floor as thematically appropriate tunes echo through Alchemy. The crowd will witness Expecta Patrone take on the role of Sith warrior Darth Maul. Foxy Monroe will provide her choreographed interpretation of the galaxy’s deadliest bounty hunter, Boba Fett. Chewbacca and Han Solo might even pay a visit to Alchemy for this special event.
