Girl Talk

Auditions held Wednesday, June 20 6:00 to 8:00 PM in the lower level of ST. Paul Community Church, 18200 Dixie Hwy., Homewood, IL


Girl Talk is a collection of songs, scenes and stories about women and girls. (what it's like to be a girl, what's good, hard and glorious about being a woman.  What makes you feel empowered, or what makes you angry - anything!)   You are encouraged to prepare a song and/or monologue or poem or other performance art that you might want to perform as part of the production.   Original materials welcome.

Auditions are open to anyone, but we hope to cast 1 to 5 girls ages 7 to 15 and 6 to 8 women ages 16 to 115.    (Boys and men welcome, as long as the materials are about girls or women).  Note that no accompanist will be provided at auditions, but a piano is available and you may bring your own music or instrument. 

We don't guarantee that your audition pieces will be what you perform in the show.

Email with any questions.
