'Sirens' sunk: Vegas Strip show permanently canceled

LAS VEGAS (FOX5/AP) -

The ship has officially sunk for an outdoor pirate-themed show that was offered for free on the Las Vegas Strip.

Sirens of TI at Treasure Island hotel-casino will not return from its current hiatus, a spokesperson for the property confirmed Monday.

The show that featured a pirate theme before reverting to a sexier show a decade ago had been on a break because of construction on a retail center there.

The show closed on Oct. 20 and was previously set to resume its schedule of multiple nighttime performances the day after Christmas.

"It would have been nice to be able to go out with a bang and celebrate the show, celebrate the times we had together," cast member Tara Taylor said.

Taylor, who had been with the show for nine years, said she was told on Friday via text message about the closure. She said the fact that her husband was also a cast member makes this much more difficult.

"It was hurtful the way the show was closed. We were reassured for a long time we would still have our jobs," Taylor said.

A spokesperson for Treasure Island issued a statement to FOX5 on Monday which said, "Because of our new retail construction, the Sirens show will be permanently discontinued."

The 40,000-square-foot, three-story retail center will include a CVS pharmacy and is slated to open in 2014.

There was no word on how many of the show's paid workers were affected by the cancellation.
