Burlesque by Sara Dipity
Sara Dipity is Seattle’s own Shirley Temple with Tits. She’s part small town gal, part big city babe, and performance art flows in her veins. As a kid, she had the opportunity to sing alongside Johnny Cash, and also at mass in Vatican City. While working towards her bachelor’s degree in musical theater at Weber State University, she had the honor of performing at the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts as a part of the national Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival (KCACTF). Sara isn’t just a songbird—she dances, acts, improvises, and plays the ukulele, too. During her time at university, she was also one of the founding members of GAF (Girls Aren’t Funny), an all-female sketch and improv ensemble. Since moving to Seattle in 2009 Sara has spent much of her time acting on Seattle stages, including Balagan, Wing-It Presents, Unexpected Productions, Stone Soup, Second Story Repertory, and more. Favorite scripted roles have included Leanne in Cannibal: The Musical, Cathy in The Last Five Years, Sarah Jane Moore in Assassins, and Abby in Musical of Musicals: The Musical!
Sara joined the Seattle burlesque scene in 2011 and has performed with Jo Jo Stiletto Events, Sailor St. Claire Presents, Unnatural Redhead Productions, and many other burlesque production companies. She is also the lead vocalist at Tuesday Tease, Seattle’s only monthly burlesque revue with live musical accompaniment.

Additionally, she lends her artistic vision to Songbird & Raven, a burlesque and theater production company she founded with her partner, Jacob Farley. Songbird & Raven (in association with Bunny Von Bunsmore) hosts Tassel Talk, a monthly development workshop for burlesque performers at all levels of experience. And recently Songbird & Raven celebrated sold-out success with their burlesque narrative, Star Trek: The Sexed Generation.
Currently, Songbird & Raven is working on Broadway Babes: A Burlesque Tribute to the Great White Way–a show celebrating quadruple threat performers adapt and singing, dancing, acting AND stripping–March 20th and 21st at Annex Theatre.
