A strip show coming to Saskatchewan is going to have to cover up.
An all-male strip show called “Body Heat” will be doing a “Regina Ladies Night” show on Sept. 18 at a downtown bar. According to the organizers, the show was booked before the stripping laws were repealed this past spring. Stripping is once again not allowed in licensed establishments in Saskatchewan unless it benefits a charity.
The business manager for the entertainment company putting on the show said they don’t harbour any animosity for the law change. He said they’re going to have to change the show from what they normally put on in other provinces.
According to him, it will have more entertainment value because they’ll be doing more things like choreographed routines and dances. But there will be “no stripping in front of the ladies”.
The odd circumstances don’t seem to be slowing down ticket sales. As of Friday, all the V.I.P. tickets were sold out, and only about 40 regular tickets were left.
