Former Dancing with the Stars alumni Melanie Brown and Kelly Monaco are trading the ballroom for a Las Vegas stage.
Monaco and Brown – a Dancing winner and runner-up respectively – are set to star in PEEPSHOW, a topless, burlesque-style performance that is expected to open in March at the Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino.
Neither Brown nor Monaco will be topless, but the showgirls surrounding them will be. Brown will be “scantily clad, but in a classy way,” she says.
Monaco’s character in the show will be “Little Bo Peep,” a timid and lonely girl who is guided by Brown’s character, “Peep Diva.”
“This is an original show,” Brown tells PEOPLE. “The Peep Diva is a diva, but it’s all about empowering Kelly’s part.”
Adds Brown, “This part is great for me. As a Spice Girl I would bring guys on the stage and whip them, so I think I’ve always been slightly naughty.”
The Dancing stars are set to star in the show for several months. A rotation of celebrities is expected to headline PEEPSHOW.
“I’m very nervous and very excited,” says Monaco.
