Another round of auditions happens tonight for The Vagina Monologues.
The Nechako Community Theatrics Society, an all-amateur drama group, is using this popular ensemble show to showcase local talent and also raise funds for charities benefiting women.
"A number of people were unable to make the audition last week so we are holding another one," said a statement issued by the group. "No need to prepare anything, we will be doing cold reads of monologues from The Vagina Monologues and A Memory, A Monologue, A Rant & A Prayer."
Tonight's audition session happens at 7 p.m. at 777 Kinsmen Place (the Big Brothers-Big Sisters complex, around the side and down the path from the front entrance).
The performances will take place Feb. 1 and 2 at Artspace (upstairs at Books & Company), one being the presentation of The Vagina Monologues and one being a reading of A Memory, A Monologue, A Rant & A Prayer.
Both nights of performance start at 8 p.m. (doors open at 7:30) and both are benefit shows.
"All profits donated to charity," the group statement said. "Ninety per cent to a local organization working to end violence against women and girls; 10 per cent to the V-Day Spotlight Campaign for women in prison, detention centres, and formerly incarcerated women. V-Day is a global activist movement to end violence against all (cisgender, transgender and gender non-conforming) women and girls."
Tickets are $20 available in advance from Books & Co and at the door.
Those interested in auditioning or watching the performances are urged to consider that there is graphic content and potentially distressing subject matter.
