"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.
