Five Years. Five. The big V in so many ways. I can’t believe we are getting ready to produce the fifth Panties in a Twist show. For me, this event allows me to break away from my daily routine and celebrate and explore what women in comedy is all about.
For the new members of the cast each year, it is a chance to shed some inhibitions, perform to sold-out crowds and experience the thrill of live performance.
There’s really nothing else quite like it. And we are lucky enough to have this amazing event as part of our community.
This year the Panties crew will be moving to the Wells Theatre–a first for both parties. It’s like the Sisterhood of the Traveling Panties. Nothing makes me more excited than celebrating this milestone with a new venue, a new cast and a completely new show.
So Ladies. Ladies. Ladies. We know you’re funny. We want your funny. Whatever your brand of funny is, we want to see it. We want to showcase as many of the talented women this area has to offer.
Ladies, if you’d like to be part of the all women show- here are the dates you need to know:
Wednesday, January 6th at 7pm: AUDITIONS!
Thursday, January 7th at 5pm: AUDITIONS!
(You only need to attend one of these two dates.)
This a tight rehearsal schedule, so it’s crucial that you bring any possible scheduling conflicts with you to auditions. Auditions will consist of cold reads from scripts as well as some improv, but you do not need to have improv experience to be part of this show! If you have something prepared, we’d love to see it! However, you are not required to prepare anything.
If you have a headshot and resume, we’d love to see that, too! Again, you are not required to have either of these things. Just bring yourself and be ready for anything.
The Push Comedy Theater is located at 763 Granby Street in Norfolk. For more info, here is the website and here is the Facebook page. The show itself takes place Saturday, February 13th at 8pm. Mark your calendars.
