It’s Different For Girls
She Productions is looking for an actor-musician to play the role of Vicki in the tour of their original musical It’s Different for Girls this Autumn.
Hull. 1965. Five young women from Hull decide to start a girl band. Within months they are touring the local pubs and clubs and are soon asked to play for the US Troops in Germany. Leaving behind their jobs as cleaners, dental assistants and waitresses, the teenagers embark on their journey to ‘freedom’. However, it’s soon clear the troops are more interested in the length of their skirts and if these girls want success they will have to bite their tongues and learn to live with it.
It’s Different For Girls is a brand new musical inspired by Hull’s own 1960s girl band, Mandy & The Girlfriends, that documents the journey of five young women as they challenge the music industry and prove that they are not just ‘good for girls’.
She Productions are an all-female collective based in East Yorkshire who create high quality, innovative work for audiences and participants of all ages.
Our mission is to develop and produce vibrant original work driven by the female voice, alongside accessible and bespoke outreach programmes serving local communities.
This actor will multi-role- playing Vicki, band manager Mrs. Smith and band roadie Kenny.
Hull accent required.
We are looking for an actor-musician who MUST play guitar, keyboard to a high standard and percussion (preferable but not essential). Applicants must be a strong singer with a Mezzo Soprano voice and ability to pick up harmonies quickly. Vicki is dental nurse by day and the band’s organist by night, ‘classically-trained’ we should add. Her musical intuition keeps the girls in check, especially when they hit a bum note!
She sees herself as one of the most mature Girlfriends juggling work, rehearsals, bookings and a long-term relationship. Her other half Rick, however, expects her to make some life-changing decisions once they are engaged to ensure her attention remains on him and their life together.
