Welcome to Unbridled!
We are Chicago’s longest running weekly burlesque, circus, and variety show. We have supported next level talent in Chicago’s River North community for the past 10 years. Our performers are the very best in their field and we have hosted many international award winning acts on our stage. Now we want YOU! Unbridled is looking for its next star of burlesque, circus* and variety. We are an inclusive show and welcome performers from all backgrounds, genders, race, size, and orientation.
Submissions for 2023 are closed. Stay tuned for, contestant announcements & showcase performances!
Participants will be notified of their participation by March 23rd. 10-12 contestants will be chosen to showcase their talent in an Unbridled show on March 30, April 6, or April 13. The winner from each of those shows will compete in the finals on April 20. The grand prize winner will receive $500 and a month residency at Unbridled, which runs every Thursday at 8:30pm. If you are a current member of the cast, you are not eligible for this contest. If you have applied or competed at Unrivaled before, you are eligible to apply again.
Thank you and good luck!
