Eleven exceptional young women from diverse backgrounds have created Massive Company’s newest production The Girls’ Show which has its premiere season at the Concert Chamber, Auckland Town Hall, THE EDGE® in July.

The Girls’ Show draws on the differing backgrounds of the cast members to explore the experiences and stories about being a young New Zealander today.

The cast, which includes young women aged 16-20 years from Maori, Cook Island, Samoan, Chinese and Vietnamese ethnicities, has been working together with directors Sam Scott and Carla Martell to create the show since the beginning of the year.

Director Sam Scott says The Girls’ Show has been created in the style of which Massive Company is renowned – “physically dynamic, visually engaging, excellent theatre."

“The girls have created a show which is personal, raw and relevant.”

Auckland-based Massive Company has been the launching pad for many New Zealand actors and directors including Oliver Driver, Danielle Cormack, Madeline Sami and Craig Parker.

The company last year presented Up Close Out Loud, following its 2006 offering 100 Cousins. Its most acclaimed play The Sons of Charlie Paora received rave reviews on its tours of New Zealand and London in 2004.

“The audience cared because the actors cared; they told their stories from the heart, the soul and with eloquent bodies, and were given a standing ovation” – NZ Listener

In 2008, Massive Company will also present the New Zealand premiere of Albert Belz’s Whero’s New Net, adapted from stories by Witi Ihimaera. This major new New Zealand work will open in Auckland in September.
