Applications for EBF5 are now CLOSED!
Thank you to everyone who applied!
Our Application process is open to performers of all varieties, ages, colors, genders and creeds. We promote and support Burlesque, Cabaret and Sideshow entertainment in all forms and encourage performers of all types to audition!
We love everything that is funny, fabulous, dark, bizarre and unique! Don't be discouraged if you don't do "traditional" burlesque- we want variety!
That being said, the venue constraints do not allow us to host fire performances, or messy acts that involve water, paint, tons of glitter, messy food etc.
However, the venue is huge and gorgeous with tall ceilings and we ARE able to host rigged acts such as Lyra and Aerial silks- PROVIDING the artist is responsible for the necessary prep work and rigging and we highly individuals who specialize in aerial and rigged acts to apply!
Since the Hangar Theatre is so large, we encourage you to apply acts that play well on a large stage. Lots of dancing and movement, large, show-stopping props and costumes and bright colors always are well received at this venue.
We also love to feature duets, trios and group material in general!
In order to audition, you will need to submit this audition form plus a video of a polished, fully choreographed and costumed routine. It does not need to be a live performance recording providing it depicts a stage-ready routine.
In order to keep the show tight but diverse, we have limited space in our lineup and we will not be able to host everyone who auditions.
Please note that if you are NOT selected, there are still many ways to get involved with the festival including a bunch of fantastic workshops hosted by our headliners that we highly recommend!
