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.
