THINGS are going to get a little cheeky at Scarborough Beach on Friday.

Three “skinny dip” events, including one up-late performance, will form part of the City of Stirling Summerset Arts Festival, running until February 5.

Performer Renee Pilkington said the audience could expect a show that would include comedy, circus, music and cabaret, while the up-late version would feature something cheeky, for those watching.

“Skinny dip is a tasting plate, if you like, for some of the acts and shows available at this year’s Fringe Festival,” she said.

“A mixture of frivolity, action, and downright cheekiness across a range of performance disciplines.

“The adult shows definitely contain a little more ‘cheek’ if you catch my drift.”

Having performed for more than two decades, Pilkington said she was excited to take part in the City’s festival, making it the perfect start to the festival season.

“It’s been our privilege to be involved with Summerset Festival and the City of Stirling for some years, with this being the second Skinny Dip we’ve been a part of,” she said.

“Becoming a creative person and a creative business has been the most rewarding life I could have hoped for.

“It’s taken decades to develop and change and I am truly thankful.”
