Local Girls

4W 1M / 90 minutes

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 Philadelphia Magazine (Azuka Theatre world premiere), Local Girls is a new scream rock fantasia comedy about girls growing up, getting out, and searching for big-time glory in a small-time town.
