About The Show


Strictly 18+ Only

Lions... Tigers... Bares!

Join the best of the West End and beyond as they strip off to see the Wizard in "Ruby Strippers", the 8th edition of WEST END BARES.

Join the much loved characters of Oz for an extraordinary night of high camp and spectacle which will see over 100 of the hottest performers take to the stage combining the naughtiness of burlesque with the magic of the West End. All the money raised goes to the Make A Difference Trust to fund HIV and AIDS projects that raise awareness, educate and provide care and support in the UK and Sub-Saharan Africa.

Featuring a glittering array of celebrity hosts and theatre friends, "Ruby Strippers" will unite the entertainment industry once more for what promises to be another unforgettable night of wild re-imaginings of one of the most loved musical stories of all time.

Directed by David Grewcock with unmissable choreography from Racky Plews (American Idiot; Footloose; Heaven on Earth), Ashley Nottingham (Thoroughly Modern Millie; Dance Mums; Disaster!), Will Lucas (Cats; Wicked), Joanna Goodwin (Barnum; Chitty Chitty Bang Bang; Sunset Boulevard), Aaron Renfree (X Factor; The Saturdays), Simone Mistry-Palmer (Motown; Dirty Dancing), Jaye Elster (Singin' In The Rain; Half A Sixpence), Ashley Jordan-Packer (Cats; Thriller Live), Fletcher Dobinson (Cats; West Side Story), Chris Whittaker (Blondel; Judy!) and James Wilson (Strictly Come Dancing; The Voice).

Now in its 8th year, WEST END BARES combines the naughtiness of burlesque along with the razzle dazzle of the West End and will feature over 100 of the hottest male and female dancers from the West End and beyond with a whole host of celebrity guests.

This year's celebrity guests will be announced in September. Previous celebrity supporters have included Graham Norton, Ramin Karimloo, Sheridan Smith, John Barrowman, Paul O'Grady, Joe Lycett, Harriet Thorpe, Bianca Del Rio, Michelle Visage, Helen Lederer and Beverley Knight.
