Local Girls

Diskit needs some friends who aren’t her dad. Riley needs a new screamer for her metal band. The Zombie Fuel Energy Drink Wreak Ruckus Battle of the Bands could transform them both from high school losers into rock gods. Maybe it'll even be enough to get them out of Tucker, Georgia.

Named "one of the smartest things that's happening in Philadelphia," by the Philadelphia Inquirer (Azuka Theatre 2016 world premiere), Local Girls is a metal fantasia comedy about searching for big-time glory in a small-time town.
