Adora Braul 

She's back for season 2!!!
The product of a one-night stand between a snack cake mogul and an Amazonian woman, Adora Braul spent her youth on a secret island inhabited solely by warrior women. She was raised to live virtues of love, equality, femininity and ass kicking with the whip as her weapon of choice. Adora began to long for a life off the island to dance and meet the mysterious creature known as man. She found her biological father, who was understandably confused, but welcomed her and provided her with funds and an unlimited supply of sugary treats. Fueled by sprinkles and creme filling, Adora danced and whipped her way around the country until she began to miss the female bonds she once knew and so she joined the tribe of Lock and Key Burlesque.

With a whipcrack and a frosted snack, Adora Braul brings the heat and the sweet.

Edie LeCont 

Say "Ahoy there!" to this special lovely!

Edie LeCont has stumbled her way onto the stage for her theatrical debut after a long, carefree period of gypsy-like wandering as she hopped from luxurious ocean liners to more humble tramp steamers and barges, hobnobbing with social elites and vagrants alike. Relying solely on maps printed no later than the 1940s, she arrived here in Peoria quite by accident. But wherever she rests her trunks is home! Edie enjoys a lean but subsantial diet of cured meats, aged cheeses and French wine. Her performances are inspired by the tragedy and romance of vaudville, caberet, and camp humour of yesteryear

Alaya Unicorn 

Please meet our favorite ball of Glitter!

Twas the night before Friday, a Thursday I believe,
when chaos and a sea nymph did somehow conceive,
a dancing unicorn would be achieved.
Moonlite magic from a broken mirror,
shined directly upon a mermaid tear, 
with that she conquored all her fear.
Like a phenoix rising from glitter,
normal life just never fit her,
stardom awaits, she's not a quitter.
With a mixture of six shots espresso
A dozen authentic tacos
And a dash, wait no! 
The whole fucking rainbow
She is shining through the storm,
light so bright with the desire to perform,
the art of burlesque, Alaya Unicorn was born.
