It’s raining men! Thunderous response for Scarlet Pearl’s first show

The first major show at Scarlet Pearl Casino Resort’s Strand Event Center is a sellout and a fourth show has been added.

Australia’s Thunder From Down Under Outback Fantasy Tour will bring its Las Vegas-style male dance revue to the D’Iberville resort this weekend. The first three performances are sold out — Friday at 9 p.m. and Saturday at 7 and 10 p.m.

A fourth show is scheduled for 7 p.m. Sunday. At 2 p.m. Wednesday, 89 tickets were available.

This is the first time the Outback Fantasy Tour will be seen at a Coast casino, said Rachel Walklet, Scarlet Pearl advertising manager.

“It’s exclusive to us,” she said.

“This isn’t the type of show you just sit and watch,” according to a press release from Scarlet Pearl. “Thunder From Down Under is a fully interactive experience promising to turn your wildest dreams into reality with each sexy performer embodying a different female fantasy.”

The performances by Australian men with “chiseled bodies and boy next door charm” are for mature audiences, with no one under 21 admitted. There is no full frontal nudity and gentlemen are welcome, according to the casino.

Tickets are $40 plus tax and can be purchased at Scarlet Pearl’s Treasures Gift Shop, the Scarlet Pearl website or by phone at 1-888-266-5772.

Walklet said additional entertainment is planned at the 450-seat Strand Event Center.

“We’re going to have comedy night in September and October,” she said, adding Thunder from Down Under will be back early next year.
