DIY BurlesKoala 2020 goes online

By November 17, 2020 November 24th, 2020 No Comments

Hello Koalas!

Turns out a pandemic can’t stop the, 2020 DIY BurlesKoalas. Our competitors have been using Lockdown to their advantage. They have been toiling away, using their creative juices to create truly unique acts to entertain!

While we have been waiting to see how restrictions around the country would change, it became apparent that an in person show would be near impossible. However, we have a cunning DIY idea to bring our show to life!

We will be hosting shows, live and in person shows, in multiple locations to give our DIY BurlesKoalas the opportunity to perform in front of a live audience. THEN, each performance, having been recorded, will feature in our online show where the judges will choose a winner!

Where can you catch your local DIY BurlesKoalas live this December?

We have 5 shows featuring our DIYers where you can cheer them on:
