Hello friends, supporters and members of our Glitterverse family,
The news these last few days has been especially busy with updates and releases from Alberta Health Services regarding the COVID – 19 virus and their recommendations on ways to help contain the spread of this pandemic.
Yesterday the Government of Alberta released updated recommendations that specifically mentioned large gatherings, events and conferences. The full release can be found here: https://www.alberta.ca/release.cfm?xID=6980324A5B1B0-BC2C-40A8-A6AD9E30E3189425
While this release states that “Alberta is asking organizers to cancel any events that have more than 250 attendees” it goes further and recommends that “any event that has more than 50 attendees and expects to have international participants, or involves critical infrastructure staff, seniors, or other high-risk populations should also be cancelled.”
Unfortunately, many of our cast, crew and ticket holders fall into one or more of these categories.
This has been a difficult couple of days for everyone, and some hard decisions have had to be made for the sake of public safety. As such and out of an abundance of caution, Glitterverse Productions will be cancelling our upcoming events, Big Band Burlesque, scheduled for March 21, 2020 and the Burlesque Dueling Divas, scheduled for April 11, 2020 at the Rec Room in Calgary.
We understand that there was a lot of excitement surrounding these events, but we feel that this is the safest option for everyone involved. Once the situation in Alberta changes, we will work hard at bringing these exciting and entertaining events back to a stage near you.
As we do not currently know when we will be able to schedule these events and do not feel that it is right holding on to these funds until we do, we will be refunding all tickets purchased for these events.
We want to thank everyone for your understanding and look forward to bringing these events to you in the future.
Please sign up for our mailing list to be notified about all future shows and events.
Should you have any questions or comments about this or other matters, please feel free to contact us at
We wish you, your friends, family and loved ones, good health.
Kara & Baron
