Velvet is a nightclub and a state of mind – a fantasy. Inspired by Studio 54, a club famous for its wild parties and hedonism but also for its culture of acceptance – blind to color, creed, class, gender, size, shape, sexuality. Velvet is a celebration of that freedom. It is a party, it’s dangerous, it’s electrifying, and its exhilarating disco soundtrack never lets up from the opening moment. Each performance invites the audience into an intoxicating glitter ball world where the performers and the audience walk the fine line between the romantic and the audacious. ‘VELVET’ is a fantastic sensory overload – funky, fresh, fun and sexy.

All candidates will be considered for all productions, including production contracts across the fleet.



The Sirens (Commercial Back-up Singer/Dancers)

Any Ethnicity. 18-30s. Ideal heights 5’6-5’9

18-30s. Ideal heights 5’6-5’9. Two extremely alluring young women who entice Country Mike into Velvet and encourage him to head further into the night. Rarely off the stage, these commanding vixens deliver a showstopper all by themselves midway throughout the night. Large scale venue or concert style backup dancer/vocalist experience preferred. Equally proficient in both disciplines, superior performance skill, and stage presence with an “x-factor” quality a must! Vocal range: Alto-Soprano, with the ability to sing lead and background vocals including harmonies and potential to belt high solo numbers and vocal lines. Though modeled after The Ikettes, contemporary references include Pussycat Dolls, Little Mix, Destiny’s Child, and J-Lo.

Must be 18 years old to apply 

Onstage Swing (Cover Country Mike)

Any Ethnicity. 18-30s. Ideal Heights 5’9-6’

An endearing young man drawn into the glamorous world that is Velvet. He is the agent of change in the piece. We need the innocent quality but also the flamboyant. We care for him deeply and the cheer his transformation when it arrives. Vocal Range: tenor with the ability to sing lead vocals, duets, and harmonies. Pop sensibility with flexibility in disco and soul genres plus some backing vocals. Instrument: Basic acoustic guitar/ukulele skills preferred, but not essential.
