Expecto patronum! Wingardium leviosa! Expelliarmus lumos! If these are your bedroom safewords, then you might already know that the wizarding world just got a heck of a lot steamier thanks to Shake That Azkaban a burlesque tribute to Harry Potter.

For the event (that has, in the past, sold-out), all are invited to channel their inner Moaning Myrtle and snatch a snitch as Dish Delish, Dotty Dart, Hermoine Stranger, Darryn Storm, and others shed their muggle skin and robes to pay tribute to the beloved franchise through mischief, magic, and nipple tassels.

Shake That Azkaban starts at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, April 20 at Ant Hall; 2320 Caniff St., Hamtramck; 313-365-4948; Tickets are $15-$20 and include entry to live concert at Ghost Light following the performance.
