Seeking burlesque performers and actors/variety performers who can do burlesque! If you would like to MC, dance or lead choreography, sing, act, perform the art of the striptease or help us behind the scenes, we would like to meet you!
Billtown Burlesque is a classic-vaudevillian neo-burlesque troupe, which we define as offering:
•Sexy - Dance or striptease
•Theatrical - Comedy, satire or other scripted piece
•Live Music - Singing or musical instrument
•Novelty - Hula hoop, giant balloon, stilts, aerial, pyro, etc.
We have undergone a dramatic change recently and will be holding auditions to be a guest performer with Billtown Burlesque in our next show. After the auditions, some performers may be included in the troupe's events and promotions for a 90 day probationary period, after which the troupe will vote on whether or not to make these performers permanent.
Our focus is on professionalism, which we define by three things:
•Punctuality - On time for all rehearsals, events and promotions
•Stage Perfection - Giving a polished performance from start to finish
•Respectful Attitude - In tandem with behavior, this is THE MOST IMPORTANT aspect
We are open to all:
•Styles of burlesque
•Levels of experience
We're looking for performers who capture the spirit of burlesque and who connect with and energize audiences. We are searching for very artistically minded, classy performers and hold our talent to the highest standards. We offer a mature, professional environment in which to explore your creativity.
We respect all who choose to work with us and expect maturity, and responsibility from our potential performers in return. No burlesque experience is required but a dance or acting background is an advantage. A high level of commitment will be expected. A natural exibitionistic flair of confidence is essential.
The ability to create characters and mini storylines is a plus. NO NUDITY will be required during the audition. If you are comfortable with going to pasties during our shows or would consider it in the future, let us know. We are looking for talent first. The glamour, the fame, the jewels... and fantastic people to work with. It's a very creative and quirky industry full of eccentrics.
Please bring a CD with your music or email the song files to BilltownBSQ@gmail.com, and "Like" our fan page to stay a-breast ;) of our activities if you have not already.

Peace, Love & Respect,
