Description:

Auditions for "Real Women Have Curves" show - video submissions. Seeking a teen girl. Please see the details below. ONLY LOCAL TALENT WILL BE ACCEPTED. About the project: Set in the sweltering East LA summer of 1987, Ana, a first-generation Mexican American, prepares for post-high school life as she impatiently awaits acceptance to Columbia University in NYC. When Ana finally tells her family of her dreams to live outside their tight-knit community, she meets resistance from her mother, Carmen, who thinks Ana should stay in Boyle Heights, get married, have a few babies, and definitely lose a few pesky pounds. Even as she obtains encouragement from her friend, Henry, Ana’s college plans begin to rip at the seams when Carmen insists that she work at her older sister’s absurdly hot garment factory. During the longest summer of her life, Ana finds herself stuck doing manual labor alongside a group of curvy, funny, and extremely gossipy Latinas who spend their days discussing marriage, sex, and dashed dreams while speedily hiding from “La Migra” at the sight of every passing van. She chronicles her experiences with these women as they sweat together in the summer heat and feverishly try to meet a nearly impossible production deadline that would make or break the factory. From this group of unassuming seamstresses, Ana begins to patch together the complexities of womanhood, feminism, and her own immigrant identity, as she prepares to unstitch herself from her family’s expectations and pen her own story. Rate: Development Agreement. $1350 weekly minimum (Tier 3). Additional info: Dates: May 8, 2023 – June 4, 2023. NYC actors are encouraged to apply.
