A good voice is an asset. A strong stage presence certainly helps.

But mostly what organizers of the third-annual Vagina Monologues are mostly looking for is women passionate about supporting women.

"Last year, many of the cast mentioned how glad they were to be taking part in this benefit production as a contribution to the local beneficiary which once again will be Cowichan Women Against Violence Society," event spokesperson Pattrica Greenwell said in an email.

"We have some returning cast members, but are still needing new blood to round out the cast."

"Last year V-Day Cowichan raised over $6,500 for CWAV. CWAV is totally on board with us again this year, helping to organize preshow events, speakers and the Gallery display for February, titled The Art of Healing; The Healing of Art."

Auditions for the Cowichan Theatre's benefit production are scheduled for Jan. 16 between 3 and 8 p.m. at the theatre.

No acting experience is necessary to audition. Register by email with your name, contact information and preferred time: info@cowichantheatre.bc.ca

The Vagina Monologues will be performed Feb. 16.
