Call for Acts: Spy VS Spy - Saturday June 1st

Capital City Burlesque invites performing artists from Edmonton and beyond to take part in the second instalment of our Battle Royale event on Saturday, June 1st at The Mercury Room.

We're looking for your best intrigue-inspired acts: anything related to spies, villains, detectives, and private investigators will be perfect for this show. Let's see your best James Bond, Dr. Evil, or Charlie's Angels!

This is a great opportunity for local performing artists to develop new acts and have fun together as we celebrate our art! Guest performers will receive a set rate - soloists will receive $50 for their act, and small groups (6 or fewer) will receive $75.

Want to participate? Email your contribution to us at! Acts will be placed on a first-come first-served basis, and the working set list below will be updated as acts are added.
