Call For Performers

Hello, Wise Fool community! We are accepting performance applications for our Winter Cabaret.

Our theme will be playing with the idea of In the Clouds – however that speaks to you: the music, your costume, or just a loose interpretation of however you feel it connects to your performance

Teens are invited to perform in the 2pm Family Friendly matinee.
For adults, if your show contains adult themes you will be limited to our 6pm evening show.
If we do not receive any adult-themed acts, both shows will be billed as “family friendly”

We are currently taking submissions in all disciplines: aerials, acrobatics, clowning, experimental movement, juggling, unicycling, dance, poi, surprise us!
