To commemorate the milestone, FANTASY’s ravishing showgirls posed for photographs on the red carpet with the new calendar and were joined on the carpet by one of the show’s guest performers, Murray SawChuck, headliner of “Murray the Magician” at Tropicana Las Vegas.

The Nevada Donor Network Foundation was announced as the recipient of an annual donation from sales of the new “2023: FANTASY Has Legs” calendar.

The scintillating production also introduced several new numbers into the show, each sung by Peril, including the new opening number “Let’s Get Loud/Already All Ready” and “Man! I Feel Like a Woman!,” both choreographed by Yesi Burgess, dancer and in-house choreographer for FANTASY, as well as “Leave Your Hat On” and the rousing new finale number, “Show Me How You Burlesque,” choreographed by superstar dancer and choreographer Sienna Lyons.
