Franki Markstone

Franki Markstone has been a driving force in Florida's Burlesque revival since 2003. Boasting an impressive and extensive list cast and troupes she works with, she has made it a personal goal to constantly evolve her art, and bring as many facets to her own form as possible. Known specifically her love of all things nerdy, geeky and freaky, Franki's signature acts are a constant revolving door of fandom. Ranging from the worlds of Harry Potter and Middle Earth, to DC/marvel and Death Note. She always has something new in the works, and we can't wait to see what she's bringing with her this time!

Walter Beals

Walter discovered juggling back in the early nineties when he was living and working in a National Park. What started out by picking up three pieces of granite behind Camp 6, in Yosemite Valley, and teaching himself to juggle, would eventually lead him to become a successful performer in various locations across the US and Europe. Too long is the list of performances he’s been part of over the last 20 some years, but since he’s moved to Asheville he’s been a part of several noteworthy productions and projects. Walter has worked on several productions of the Runaway Circus and the Loose Cabooses winter circus shows both as a performer and director. Walter also worked for a year as Professor Darius Diurtee, with his side-kick Sophia (the burlesque circus dog!) as emcee for Bootstraps Burlesque. He has also been involved in Asheville Vaudeville for several years as both a producer and performer. Walter is probably best known as R2D10 of the four-person comedy/juggling troupe Forty Fingers and a Missing Tooth. He’s been juggling and performing with that troupe for almost 10 years now.
