ACTING CLASSES ~
A unique performance class for girls ages 12-17
This is an incredibly empowering theatre experience for teenage girls who want to perform and give voice to their passions and protests. Exploring topics that are important to them, these young women will create their own performance and, through theatre, help shape the world we live in. Fueled by Obie Award-winning playwright Eve Ensler’s work, we’ll dialogue, discuss, and perform on such topics as body image, media influence, sex and dating, “mean girls,” competition, parents, gender dynamics, homework, creativity, and more. The second session of GIRLS INC will take this show on tour to public schools in May. This ensemble holds girls’ experiences in ways that are truthful, powerful, and poignant. In working together, and through the intensity that creating theatre can be, we come to that which is meaningful, necessary, and ready to share. Previous GIRLS INC. performances have changed not only the lives of the girls who participated, but also the lives of those who witnessed the performances. Girls sharing together. Concentrated theatre training. Words. Trust. Transformation.
“I wish someone was doing GIRLS INC when I was a teenager! This is amazingly profound work!” “I came back to watch the performance again. Nobody is doing this kind of raw theatre with young people. It really matters!” ~ Audience members 2010 & 2011
