Chicago, IL (January 2011): Mamma Mia! As BOOBS AND GOOMBAS: A SUPER MARIO BURLESQUE continues to gain popularity and play to sell-out crowds, Gorilla Tango Theatre and MsPixy have announced that they will not only extend the current hit into January (Fridays and Saturdays at 11pm beginning January 7, 2011 - www.gorillatango.com, advanced purchase HIGHLY recommended) -- they will also continue their Burlesque partnership with the second installment in what they have dubbed "Geek Girl Burlesque."

"This was intended as a long-term partnership from the start," says Boobs and Goombas writer/director MsPixy, "Super Mario is just one of a long list of ideas in the Geek Girl idea bank."

The next Geek Girl Burlesque will indulge the fans of the Fantasy Genre, subverting subjects from Middle Earth to Earthsea. In FELLOWSHIP OF THE BOOBS: AN LOTR, WoW, D&D, RPG BURLESQUE, a party of Four Buxom Warriors will pursue a Quest of Great Magnitude-- encountering a mix of salacious satire and seductive striptease along the way.

Auditions for FELLOWSHIP OF THE BOOBS will be held on Wednesday, January 12, 2011 and Saturday, January 15, 2011 at Gorilla Tango Theatre (1919 N. Milwaukee Avenue, Chicago IL 60647).

"We're looking for a variety of body types for this show," says MsPixy, whose cast for BOOBS AND GOOMBAS was a mix of experienced ecdysiasts and first-time burlesque performers, "we're casting for tall, broad-chested women, short curvy girls, slender-hipped willowy ladies, and petite sprightly types."

Performers cast in the next Geek Girl escapade will be playing a variety of characters from Dwarves to Nymphs and Warriors to Elves. "Of course," winks MsPixy, "we won't know until we cast the role whether she's a wood elf, half elf, dark elf, or high elf-- but we do know you'll want to see what happens once she's trapped in the web of a giant, sexy spider."
