420 or 457 Visa?

Hi. I'm from the USA currently on a working holiday visa. I work in general management/associate producing in the theatre. A while back, I had been hired on as an Associate GM for a production that was opening in Melbourne before touring Australia. However because of a few mishaps, the production had to be pushed back until mid-late next year.... which ultimately meant that my roll has been laid off. The problem was, we were just about to go through the process of sponsorship... so obviously that's not happening and my current visa expires the 2nd of January. Needless to say, time is of the essence. :-\ I have another employer who would like to employ me to promote some commercial musicals during the 2012 season. However, he is not a company (he is a business) but is also a sole trader.... so I believe that causes some problems with providing evidence of the Benchmark requirements on hiring/training Australians (as he has no other employees). I am more than qualified for the position, but again the employer has never really hired Australian citizens. Is there some loophole? Or could we even go after the 420 Entertainment visa? Although it's not a single production I would be working for, I would be promoting a few of these high profile shows for their 2012 season in a management position. Thanks for the help!
