Kinseys to Close Election Year Show... in Mexico!
Oct 24, 2016Most of us will miss the election season as much as a year-long colonoscopy/root canal pairing. But there’s one thing to be sad about: The Kinsey Sicks’ “Electile Dysfunction 2016” must end as well! And what more fitting place to close the show than in Mexico? (If coming from the USA to see us, we recommend arriving by air. Car or bus travel is not recommended, as construction of a wall may impede your return. Not that you’ll want to.)
You have only 6 more chances to see Electile Dysfunction 2016!

Kinsey Sicks Hold Auditions!
Oct 17, 2016
Are you someone with a great voice and dubious judgment who is itching to fill in for various Kinsey Sicks members while they jet off to Moscow for clandestine, government-financed affairs? Someone smart enough to handle multiple a cappella roles, comedy, drag, improv, and life on the road - and yet stupid enough to want to do it with us?
If that’s not you, but you have friends who perform, or who otherwise are exceptional talents who might fit well with the Kinsey Sicks, then please forward the following job announcement:
The Kinsey Sicks, America's Favorite Dragapella® Beautyshop Quartet, are seeking serious and skilled performers. We are looking for:

* Strong musicianship (ability to sight-read is a plus)
* Great talent in comedy and comedic improvisation in an ensemble
* Comfort with drag performance
* Ability to learn complex 4-part vocal arrangements in limited time
* Willingness to travel
* Willingness to chip in on some performance-related prep work
* Progressive politics, good communication skills, and the ability to work in a team.
A cappella experience is a plus but not required. Being part of The Kinsey Sicks is incredibly fun. You should be too. We want you to be as excited about what we do as we are.
TO APPLY: Send a resume, along with a headshot or recent photo, indicate your vocal range, plus any materials (ex: links to performance clips on YouTube, personal website, etc.) you think would help us see your skills to firstname.lastname@example.org.
