The AZ BurlyPicks Regional Competition, April 15th at The Screening Room
'Mr Exotic World' 2015 Matt Finish is bringing BurlyPicks to the desert! 'The Golden Boy of Burlesque' will host an evening of burlesque and variety competition featuring talent from across the country as they make their way to the BurlyPicks World Championship.
Burlypicks is the ultimate burlesque showdown and it starts in a city near you. Acceptance into the The 2017 Burlypicks World Championship will be contingent upon winning in a Regional competition or being one of the top placing "people's choice" winners, in Burlesque B's annual online contest. We are committed to re-expanding the definition of Burlesque to include all the variety that made it a national treasure and worldwide entertainment phenomenon both today and in the past. To that end, we are encouraging Stripteasers, Dancers, Musicians, Magicians, Aerialists, Jugglers, Clowns, Comedians, Comics, Ventriloquists, Sideshow acts, Drag acts, and anything we haven't seen yet, to complete for the gold!
The overall winner, along with anyone selected for a Masters Award, will get to compete for their category representing Arizona at the World Championship in Denver Colorado, August 25-26. Burlypicks will be featuring meet and greets, classes, after parties, and more.
Each act will be eligible to win any of the titles. The acts are judged in a manner that does not favor any one style of performance or type of talent. The Best overall category, receiving Gold/Silver/Bronze medals, are judged based on 5 disciplines: Talent, Poise, Polish, Costume, and Creativity. In addition to the Master's categories, the Finals will include additional guest judges and award other superlative titles. Master of Assels and Master of the Tassels will be judged by audience applause, as determined by the Master of Ceremonies for the evening.
