{The problem with girls like that is they ruin it for everyone.
The problem with girls like that is they give all girls a bad name.}
Girls Like That by Evan Placey
Directed by Henri Canino
Choreographed by Jackie Burns
Note: This is NOT a musical.

7 females 18+ (due to mature content) Must be strong movers/ dancers.
There will be a choreography portion to the audition ( contemporary)
There will also be some monologues from the script auditioned (TBD)
The play takes place in a British school system so the director would like to hear an attempt at an accent ( English, Scottish, Irish etc) but it is not an essential requirement for the audition.
Rehearsals starting October 23rd, Tuesdays and Thursdays at 6:30 pm and Sundays 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm (no rehearsals during holidays from Dec 20 to Jan 3rd)
Performances Jan 30th to Feb 2nd
Scripts available at box office with $20 returnable deposit.

Note: This is our festival entry so there is always a chance of making it to festival which would mean being available for one more performance during March break. If we make it beyond that then one more performance in May.

Girls Like That is a play about girls, boys, feminism, friendship, running with the pack, self-image and online sharing. When a naked picture of Scarlett gets sent around the school in a matter of minutes, the fall out reveals the underlying social dynamic as her peer group react to what’s happened. As the girls, previously her close friends, distance themselves from Scarlett, we see their own vulnerabilities and anxieties about self-image and sexuality exposed. And when a photograph of Russell also circulates, the double standards for girls and boys are also revealed. Girls Like That is an urgent and explosive play that explores gender equality and the pressures on today’s digital generation.
