About

Boxcar Burlesque is Athens, Ohio’s premier burlesque troupe, founded by Dolly Derringer in the summer of 2009.

Harking back to the days of traveling showmanship and vagabond glamour, Boxcar dazzles audiences with performances inspired by classic burlesque, vaudeville antics and sideshow spirit. The troupe came about from a group of women excited about the thrill of performance and the romance of the rails. The history of travelers and drifting performers has greatly influenced our founding, and our body of work.

The ladies of Boxcar Burlesque perform regularly in Athens and travel throughout Ohio and the midwest. To inquire about booking, please contact athensburlesque@gmail.com
