Be a Bombshell! Don’t just look like one.
More details have surfaced for the upcoming (and first ever) open audition to be the newest member of supertroupe The Atomic Bombshells. These ladies- as well as host Jasper McCann- have made a huge contribution in fanning the flames of burlesque’s sparkling presence in Seattle as well as raising the bar for professional burlesque nationwide. Their shows are polished to perfection, their dance moves divine, and they thrill time after time with grand scale productions such as 2010’s fantastic Lost in Space. The Atomic Bombshells have been the inspiration for many a performer, and in doing so have launched numerous fledgling ecdysiast careers from coast to coast. If you think you have what it takes to be a part of some big time burlesque, this is a phenomenal opportunity to work with some of the best in the business.
Here’s the fine print:
WHEN: Sunday, April 10 • 3:00pm – 6:00pm
WHERE: Tashiro Kaplan Artist Lofts (Pioneer Square), 115 Prefontaine Pl. S., Seattle, WA
The Atomic Bombshells are holding their FIRST EVER OPEN AUDITION for the newest addition to their internationally celebrated Burlesque supertroupe! Critically acclaimed in local, national, and international press, The Atomic Bombshells have become one of the most recognized and accomplished burlesque troupes around. In addition to consistently selling out venues such as The Triple Door in Seattle, the Bombshells have toured the U.S., Portugal, China, and have a yearly summer residency in Provincetown.
Girls, boys, everything in-between are welcome, but interested applicants MUST have some previous dance experience and be able to learn choreography. Previous burlesque experience welcomed but not necessary.
*Kitten LaRue is the Artistic Director/Producer of The Atomic Bombshells, so if chosen as a troupe member, you must be comfortable with being directed and styled. Every troupe member’s input is welcome and valued, but final decisions about every detail come down to one director.
*As being an Atomic Bombshell involves a certain amount of time, energy, and dedication, with definite rewards for said dedication, if chosen as the new member, we require that the Bombshells will be the only TROUPE that you are a member of. Solo and other show projects are fine.
Please bring a headshot (doesn’t have to be professional, just something to recognize you with) and a performer bio. The audition will be composed of 2 parts:
*In part one, everyone will learn a few 8 counts from the Bombshells rep, and be divided into groups to perform it.
*In part two, those who have something to show us (a short dance, striptease, extra skill or talent, whatever you want!) will do that one at a time. This is not required but encouraged. Please bring music on CD.
PLEASE RSVP TO THIS AUDITION by emailing email@example.com
Best of luck to all that try out!
