Announcing auditions for Top Girls!
Ghost Light Players are thrilled to announce our November, 2018 show – Top Girls by Caryl Churchill. A landmark production in the feminist movement, Top Girls is about a career-driven woman named Marlene, who is only interested in women’s success in business. In the famous opening scene, she hosts a dinner party for a group of famous women from history. As the play unfolds, the audience learns that Marlene has left behind a “poor” life in order to tread the path to “success.” Directed by Krisha Maynard and produced by Bryson Michael, this production will examine the role of women in society, and what it means to be a “successful” woman.
We recognize and celebrate the value of diversity in our art and in our lives, and would like in particular to encourage artists of color to audition. One of the play’s characters–a thirteenth-century Japanese concubine named Lady Nijo–calls for an actress of Asian or Asian-American descent.
Auditions: June 27 and 28 by Appointment at First Church in Marlborough
Callbacks, as needed: July 1
Performances: November 9-11
We welcome auditions from all women, as well as transfeminine or nonbinary performers, to portray the women of Top Girls.
