Wonka-Themed Burlesque Auditions
Alice Wilson-Stuart's Rockabilly Girl Productions is looking to put together a burlesque show in 2014 inspired by Willy Wonka and Charlie the Chocolate Factory. It's being directed by Wisconsin Hybrid Theatre's Charles Sommers.
It's an open call. They're not only looking for burlesque acts, they're also looking for circus and comedy acts. Of course, anything that can be bent to the rather interesting theme of Roald Dahl's classic would be ideal.
The show itself is (and this is actually pretty cool, too) the date of the show is February 14th. (And possibly the 15th.) Sounds kind of fun.
Here's the audition notice as posted:
