PACK YOUR BAGS, LADIES!   GIRLS ONLY IS HEADING TO CANADA

AFTER A SMASH HIT 2007 FRINGE DEBUT, COMEDY TO RETURN TO WINNIPEG MARCH 18-APRIL 3

 
DENVER -- After leaving 2007 Winnipeg Fringe Festival audiences in stitches, GIRLS ONLY - The Secret Comedy of Women will return to the hometown of one of its authors for a triumphant return engagement.  The hit comedy was created by Winnipegger Barbara Melnyk Gehring and Colorado native Linda Klein, both of whom will star in the Winnipeg production. GIRLS ONLY will play at the Tom Hendry Theatre at the Manitoba Theatre Centre Warehouse March 18-April 3.  The Denver production of the show will continue to play its regular schedule at Denver's Garner Galleria Theatre.

We couldn’t be happier to have our first international production of GIRLS ONLY take place in creator Barbara Gehring’s hometown,” said Randy Weeks, President and COO of the Denver Center for the Performing Arts. “The show continues to enjoy a long running engagement in Denver, we had a very successful extended run in Des Moines, and now we are excited to bring this delightful show to audiences in Manitoba.”

GIRLS ONLY, an original comedy written by Gehring and Klein, is a delightfully candid look at just what it means to be female. From diaries and first crushes to “the change” and the never-ending battle with pantyhose, GIRLS ONLY covers it all in a side-splitting take on the things all women go through together. Born out of the earnest and sweetly absurd writings the two authors discovered in their girlhood diaries, GIRLS ONLY is a mix of sketch comedy, improvisation, audience participation, and lively songs and videos.

GIRLS ONLY plays the Manitoba Theatre Centre March 18-April 3. Tickets start at just $18, plus GST, and are available from the MTC Box Office now. For show and ticket information, call the MTC Box Office at 204.942.6537, toll free at 1.877.446.4500 or visit www.mtc.mb.ca.

LADIES’ NIGHT OUT COMEDY GIRLS ONLY CELEBRATES FIRST ANNIVERSARY AT DCPA

Denver, CO — This week, Denver Center Attractions’ hit comedy GIRLS ONLY – The Secret Comedy of Women will celebrate its first year playing to enthusiastic houses at The Garner Galleria Theatre. With 328 performances notched in its bedpost, GIRLS ONLY continues to put its female-dominated audiences in stitches, with no end in sight for the laugh-fest.

After the show’s first year, over 50,000 women have seen the hit comedy. Audiences have heard 5,576 beautifully awkward diary entries read, pulled 1,312 mementos from Barbara & Linda’s memory boxes, seen 4,920 Craft Corner projects made, and had 6,560 feminine products tossed at them.

GIRLS ONLY also recently launched its new website, GirlsOnlyComedy.com, a dedicated online destination for fans of the show. Users can learn more about the cast and creative team, find ways to get more involved with “the girls”, share personal diary entries about rotating topics, get the behind-the-scenes scoop with the Girls Only blog, and explore show-related content like Craft Corner projects, the official Girls Only playlist, drink recipes and party games.

GIRLS ONLY, written by Barbara Gehring and Linda Klein, is an original comedy that celebrates the honor, truth, humor and silliness of being female. A combination of sketch comedy, improvisation and musical numbers, with a little audience participation thrown in, the show reminds audiences of the very funny and very charming similarities all women share. With a two-woman cast and audiences full of raucous, laughing ladies, the show is a unique examination of all things girly. The two roles in the show are performed by Gehring and Klein, as well as Amie MacKenzie and Allison Watrous.

Dear Diary

Back-to-School Memories: Spider Karma

First Day of 9th Grade, I was all dressed up and looked great, felt great, it was a beautiful day! I left my house to walk to school and as I was walking up the alley I saw a spider. I paused for a moment and looked at the spider, really looked at it. Then I killed it! The guilt I felt was horrific,...
