Tickets for Jay Gatsby Requests... are now LIVE so accept your invitation to be swept back to another era, where the giggle-water flows as easily as the money. Where writers like F. Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald and Ernest Hemingway were poised to record every depravity, every vice and every scandal that made the Roaring Twenties the wildest decade of them all.

"Jay Gatsby Requests..." was the first show produced wholly and solely by The Sass and Tease Collective and we are bringing it back to celebrate six years of Sass and Tease! This time featuring international headliners the Ballet School Dropouts!

Tickets available through the Abbey!

Meet the Ballet School Dropouts:

Once upon a time there were two prim and proper ballerinas from New Zealand, they were young, innocent and full of hopes and dreams for the future. One day the pair got themselves lost on the way home from Sunday school. In hopes of getting directions they followed a trail of sequins and the sound of jazz music and down the rabbit hole they went to behold sights, sounds and wonders beyond their wildest imagination. The rest is history!

Dahlia Dangerous and Trillian met 6 years ago as they prepared to debut as solo performers. The two rapidly cemented their position on the local and international stages, safe to say The Ballet School Dropouts are New Zealand's favourite burlesque duet.

Collectively they have over 50 years’ experience in various styles of dance and performance, using their exceptional talent for synchronicity to create intense and powerful acts that will leave you clinging to the edge of your seat and begging for more.
