Sadie Hotkins

You Can't Say No To This Gal


Sadie has no idea what she's doing here, but by god she's going to dance. Bringing a pleasant balance of weird and whimsical to the stage, Sadie rides the fine line between sensual woman and delirious cartoon. She's hard to catch at the moment - Sadie is off learning how to "act good" and plans to come home with an MFA. In the past she has been a part of Gorilla Tango Burlesque, Original Tease, and Kiss Kiss Cabaret. Stay on the lookout for Plan 9 announcements when Sadie will be back to visit with a new bag of tricks (and probably snacks because sustenance is important). 

Note from Sadie: Grad School is hard. Send hott men. 


Plan 9 Questionnaire

  • How did you get started in Burlesque and Plan 9?

 A friend of my wrote a comedy nerdlesque show and asked me to audition. I met my burlesque tribe doing multiple shows with that first theatre and when Plan 9 was founded I was invited to be an Asstronaut. Who would say no to that?

  • Is there a story behind your burlesque name?

I tried out so many different names while trying to develop my burlesque-self. The one thing I knew for sure was that I wanted my name to be a pun. I’m a punny gal.

  • What is your favorite number? 

Bare Necessities is absolutely my favorite number to perform. It’s sexy, silly, and half-way through it I get a snack.

  • If you could be any fictional character who would you be and why?

Probably one of Ariel’s sisters. I love being in the water, so the only thing currently stopping me from living in the sea is the inability to breathe when submerged. I wouldn’t want to be Ariel though - I’m not into princes and I really like talking. There are totally hot merman in the sea.

  • What’s one thing people may be surprised to learn about you?

I don’t really listen to music very often. My phone is overloaded with Podcasts. Top Recommendations: Reply All, RadioLab, Mystery Show, Criminal, The Truth, and Hello From the Magic Tavern

  • Where else can people find your work?

I’m also a member of Original Tease but I’m on a bit of a hiatus while I earn this master’s degree. But I plan on doing guest shows and drop-in’s when my schedule allows.
