If you get excited at the idea of covering everything you own in rhinestones and sequins, your heart beats faster at the application of ruby red lipstick, or you just want to hear an audience's screams and whistles, this may be the life for you!  We are always looking for experienced performers, jugglers, clowns, puppeteers, magicians, singers, MCs and all other forms of burlesque, vaudeville and variety! 

We are looking for independent performers as we are not a troupe so you can perform when it's best for you and your schedule. There's no obligation and we do not limit your involvement in other productions as we are non-exclusive. 


Please contact us to set up an audition!
