From Stay at Home Mom to Burlesque Performer in Six Weeks!
Angel Burlesque Held Open Auditions for A Girl for All Seasons
Indianapolis, IN – Stay at home moms trade in aprons and sweatpants for corsets and glitter as they take the stage alongside seasoned professionals. Angel Burlesque (Nuvo's Best Burlesque 2012) held open auditions for its April show, A Girl for All Season that resulted in a cast of 20 men and women (10 Angel favorites and 10 brand new ladies, many of whom are making their burlesque debuts)! Ladies and gentlemen from all walks of life go from ordinary to extraordinary in this brand new production. A Girl For All Seasons opens April 24th and run for six performances at the Crackers Comedy Club in Broad Ripple.
Freshly dubbed, “Lily Lightly” shares why she responded to the open audition call: “I've spent this past year re-discovering the things I love and stepping out of my ‘I'm-just-a-stay-at-home-mommy’ box.... Auditioning for an Angel Burlesque show spoke to my inner theater chick, my sensual side, my ability to laugh at myself, and my craving for new friendships! I think I'm on a mission to prove to myself that underneath the layers and labels of my everyday life, I'm still me. I'm still a woman. I'm still here.”
The burlesque ladies and gentlemen explore the sexy side of the calendar…the first peek of spring, hot summer nights, colorful autumn leaves, and the winter ice. Crazy holidays are highlighted including everyone’s favorite, “Talk Like a Pirate” Day; all presented in a format that harkens back to the heyday of burlesque. From elaborate costumes to the chorus of beautiful showgirls, A Girl for All Seasons is not to be missed. Angel favorites include founder and CEO Katie Angel, the reigning Miss TaTa’s & Tiaras Bunny VanDoren, Brigitte Petite, Jada Bella, Layla Seduisant, Pepper Mills and “boylesquer” Gentleman Jack. Hosts Belle Breeze and Jeff Angel have been recognized as the best in town! Brigitte Petite is fresh from her appearance at Atlanta’s “Southern Fried Burlesque Festival.” Pepper Mills & Katie Angel are scheduled to perform at Michigan’s inaugural “Spring Fling Burlesque Festival” on April 13.
Angel Burlesque was voted Indianapolis’s “Best Burlesque” troupe. They have raised thousands of dollars for local charities including the Indiana AIDS Fund, Planned Parenthood and the Julian Center. Members of Angel Burlesque have performed at burlesque festivals in St. Louis, Chicago, Ohio, Georgia, Alabama and beyond.

The Bus has added Gen Con to their 2013 press roster. Once again, we will be there in absoulte full effect. Add that to us already attending Who's Yer Con, and upcoming appearances at InConJunction and C2E2, and things are off to a pretty good start. We look forward to finding you all at one of these fine shows!
March 26th 2013
There's nothing really new on the horizon yet. We will be having some announcements very soon. And if everything goes the way we want it to, they will be fairly big announcements. We have a few things to be pretty excited about around The Medium Bus Studios. We want you all to be a part of it, so stay tuned!
March 19th 2013
Who's Yer Con is behind us now. You can listen to episode 104 to hear about our time there. But now, we look ahead to C2E2 and all that Chicagoland has to offer us here at The Bus. Are you going to be there? Hit us up, girl. What's yo digits? Make sure you join us next week when we butcher the rules to Eaten By Zombies! as we have no played it for a while.
March 12th 2013

It's the slow season for us. Hence, the reason for such infrequent news-type posts on the main page here. However, there are a few things coming up worth noting here. Coming up in Mid-March, the 15th through the 17th to be more precise is a local, and more importantly FREE gaming convention called Who's Yer Con. Get it, it sounds like Hoosier, but it's not. Essentially, just go register for some games, and show up to play. It's more than that, but who really needs it to be more complicated than that right there? No one!
Next, we have C2E2 coming up. It's at the end of April, once again to get into specificts it's the 26th through the 28th. It's going to be our first time there. And, outside of that, we're going to have our press badges. Get ready to feel the full force of The Bus, Chicago! We're coming for you, and leaving a wake of destruction behind.
Then later this year we have the possibility of either Days of the Dead again or InCnJunction both of which fall the same weekend in July. So, we are deliberating on those to see which will give us the best reach to our core audience. Obviously, we will be returning to Gen Con again this year, but it's not until August. So, we aren't even thinking about that right now. Yes we are! It never leaves our brains!
But first and foremost, in our brains is a meet-up we're doing on March 1st. If you have a podcast, or wish to have a podcast, and you want to connect with other like-minded individuals, then you can attend. The Indiana Podcaster's Meetup page will have all the info you need for that one! So, that's pretty much where things are headed so far this year. We'll keep you posted as things develop. Ad ther ewill be more updates as things begin to roll along more quickly here in 2013. Now, go look for our milestone 100th episode and listen to it!
January 25th 2013
It's been a while since we last updated, but there are things to be said now. The new year is always a slow start, there's nothing really going on. One thing that happened is the bus celebrated its 2nd anniversary. Yay for us. It was celebrated with tons of booze, and several BJ's that will be regretted for years to come. More important than that is we have our 100th episode coming in February. Can you believe we've done this bullshit almost 100 times? It's going to be magnificent and glorious and awesome!
Now, we have actual news also. You may have heard in some recent episodes that we talked to local burlesque dance Pepper Mills about a fundraiser she is having. It's a fusing of awesomeness. An Evening of Beastie Boys Burlesque fuses boobs and kick ass music and it's all for a good cause. You get to look at boobs, to help save boobs! Yes, seriously though, it's to help raise money for breast cancer reasearch. It's all being heald at The White Rabbit Cabaret at 1116 Prospect Street in Indianapolis on February 16th at 9:00 PM.
Additionally, the aforementioned Pepper Mills also has a Facebook Page as does her friend Brigitte Petite who has also been on our show. Together they form the powerhouse duo Team Little Spicy! They have started their own podcast, called CreepCast. You can find their first episode at teamlittlespicy.com! Way to go ladies, now you've made it!
January 2nd 2013
It's a new year. It's also time to clean house. The blogs, reviews, and episodes are archived now. 2012 is behind us for good. Get over yourself. I declared 2012 the year of the bus. We accomplished a lot of great things. 2013 is already shaping up to be amazing. We've got a lot of great things, planned. we're expanding our horizons, and we're bring you all along with us! Since buses don't have seat belts, then don't buckle up. Just be careful back there, and stop thowing wads of paper at the driver!
