Purchase tickets online:

"Spank! The Fifty Shades Parody" brings all the naughty fun of the best-selling book to life, though the show is not associated with nor authorized by "Fifty Shades" author E.L. James or Vintage Press. The show cleverly re-imagines the book's characters as they come alive with hysterical comedy, musical numbers and steamy performances from the man in the grey tie. Since its premiere in October 2012, "Spank!" has become a box office hit with tour dates in over 150 cities across the United States and Canada.

Audience members can enjoy pre-show drinks including a specialty "Spank!" cocktail. After the show, showgoers will have the opportunity to pose for photos with cast members.
