Casting Call for Female Variety Performers May-Jul
Posted February 21, 2012
The Pretty Things Peepshow, "a girly roadshow," which includes a unique blend of circus, sideshow, and burlesque, is looking to add another fabulous lady to our cast for our next national tour. This job may lead to future tours as well.

We are a tight-knit cast that includes Miss Heather Holliday (sword swallowing, knife throwing, fire eating) Donny Vomit (host, juggling, whip cracking, human block head, strong man, animal traps, and comedy) and go-go Amy (burlesque and Chinese execution blade box) As you can tell, the three of us cover a lot of acts, so we're looking for someone to round out the cast, and we feel a cirque performer or someone who does variety burlesque would be a good fit. We are looking for a female performer who has at least three acts up (more would be a plus) that can travel.

We love having aerial in the show but since we are a traveling act we are not always able to rig at every venue so an aerial performer would need a strong floor act or a small free-standing rig to substitute for the venues that don't have the ability at accommodate rigging. We also love hula hoop acts, contortionists, singers, rope tricking, and any other beautiful or bizarre acts out there and are open to all kinds of new ideas. The show is based out of New York City, so we would like to find someone located on the east coast as that would make rehearsal schedules a lot easier, but we are willing to accept submissions from all over the U.S. in order to find the right person.
