Before Carrie, Samantha, Charlotte and Miranda cut a wide swath through the men of New York on HBO’s acclaimed Sex and the City; Cynthia, Rita and Cleo were doing the same in A Girl’s Guide to Chaos. They were the ’80s creations of Cynthia Heimel, a humorist whose books include Get Your Tongue Out of My Mouth, I’m Kissing You Goodbye and When Your Phone Doesn’t Ring, It’ll Be Me. If you are a fan of Fran Lebowitz, Bridget Jones’ Diary or Sex and the City, you won’t want to miss this sassy comic venture into the romantic escapades of the urban female.

*About Auditions
Auditions are cold readings from scripts assigned at the audition. All other rehearsals will be scheduled around cast and director availability to accommodate all those concerned. We will also schedule auditions to the best of our ability. Please request your preferred date and time in advance via email at theaterfilm@artsbonita.org. We will continue to allow walk-in auditions, but we will accommodate scheduled actors first.
