CLO Cabaret

What: Auditions for the comedy, GIRLS ONLY - THE SECRET COMEDY OF WOMEN
By Barbara Gehring and Linda Klein
Directed by Luanne Nunes de Char

Where: The Benedum Center, 719 Liberty Ave, 3rd Floor Rehearsal Room.

When: Saturday, January 17, 2015; 10:00 am – 6:00 pm
Callbacks Sunday, January 18, 2015. Time TBD

About the Show: GIRLS ONLY is an original comedy that celebrates the honor, truth, humor and silliness of being female. With a two-woman cast and audiences full of raucous, laughing ladies, the show is a unique examination of all things girly. Born out of the earnest and sweetly ridiculous writings the two authors discovered in their girlhood diaries, the Girls Only mix of sketch comedy, improvisation, audience participation, and hilarious songs and videos will remind you that underneath, women all have very funny and very charming feminine similarities.

Seeking: Fun, light-hearted female actresses who play in their 30’s to mid 40’s and who are comfortable with improvisation, strong comedic characters and audience interaction. Actresses need to be in modest underwear for a small portion of the show.

These two gals are best friends who wish they had been childhood friends. Their smart humor is different, yet very compatible. You would pick them both first for your kickball team, but for different reasons.

Girl 1: Energetic, perky, chatty, athletic and driven. She is confident and charismatic and is always put together. She could kick your butt in both curling AND softball, yet her animated and lively personality makes her non-threatening. She will engage you despite yourself. She is not afraid to let milk come out of her nose when she laughs, and doesn’t care how she looks doing it.

Girl 2: Down to earth, observant, practical and soft hearted. She has an analytical mind tempered with patience and a great love for the human condition. Her dry wit lightly veils her brilliant sense of humor. She is direct and to the point, yet fun. She is the one who makes you laugh so hard the milk come out your nose.

Requirements:
• Head shot and resume stapled together.
• Auditioners should prepare a one-minute comic monologue.
