Visions of Possibilities is pleased to announce a star-studded presentation of the critically acclaimed play, “Conversations ‘Bout The Girls.” Conceived, written and directed by Sonia Jackson, “Conversations” is an exploration into the lives of young girls and women and the relationships they have with their breasts, i.e. “the Girls”. The first three women cast in this production are Georgia Muldrow (VWET III, The Last Stand), Josefa Salinas (L.A.’s POWER 106, Gold Coast Broadcasting) and Monika Casey (Shameless, Rebel). This inspiring production is going virtual for the first time ever on May 14th, 2022.
Jackson says “Visions of Possibilities is extremely grateful to these three incredible women with very distinct talents and ways of life. They have said ‘Yes’ to donating their time and voice. These women have stepped forward to spread the message.”
The long-running stage play by film & TV actress Sonia Jackson (“Speed”, “Jurassic Park III”) reveals the several ways women look at themselves, their bodies, and most importantly—their breasts! Funds raised by the event will benefit Susan G. Komen®, the world’s leading breast cancer organization.
The contemplative interpretations will help the audience appreciate and understand what it is like to be a woman.
Georgia Muldrow: Georgia Muldrow is an LA native that comes to our team with a background in music as a producer, singer and multi-instrumentalist. She is also the co-founder of SomeOthaShip Connect record label. Muldrow thrives in the making of jazz-fusion, neo-soul and blues music; you can find her at various music festivals, bars and events. Visions of Possibilities is eager to have Muldrow’s beautiful mind and soul present with our team. “Sonia is doing something so beautiful… I’m thankful to be a part of a project that could influence someone’s life and/or wellbeing,” says Muldrow. Follow her Instagram account (@georgia.muldrow) for positive, stimulating videos as well as updates on performances.
Josefa Salinas: Josefa Salinas is known for her on-air personality in the LA area. On the air everyday – she’s recently joined Gold Coast Broadcasting, bringing her show “The Community Review” to listeners every Sunday at 8 am. Salinas is more than a voice you listen to in the mornings though; since she was young, Salinas was ambitious to be a role model for women as well as a mentor/advocate for underprivileged communities. In 2020, the LA County Commission for Women honored Salinas as one of the Women of the Year with an Award for her civic dedication to making a difference in the lives of women in the community. She has also served the LA community as a Commissioner, improving public libraries as well as making them more accessible and inclusive for the entire public. Salinas is also the founder and CEO of her own stations; she even has a station called “Your Military Voice” which targets active-duty servicemen/women and their families. “I firmly believe that I found my purpose at a young age, and ever since then, I dedicate every day to achieving that purpose. I’m so excited to implement that into this production for all these girls and women,” says Salinas. For a glimpse into Salinas’ life, positive quotes and event updates, follow her on Instagram (@josefasalinas).
Monika Casey: Monika Casey is an actress, producer and comic from San Francisco. She went to Arizona State University where she got her BFA in Theater. She was originally doing stand-up around well-known comedy clubs in the LA area but she then grew a desire to get into mainstream entertainment. Not only did she make an appearance in a flashing scene in the comedy film, Sex Ed (2014), but she also produced it. Casey has made appearances in other productions such as Shameless and Rebel. Her most current project is the development of a series about her life after divorce. Casey is also a frequent co-host on the Jeff Lewis Live show on SiriusXMRadio. When Casey is not busy with her career, she is a mom to a 7-year-old little girl. The two enjoy their time together with frequent visits to the park, exploring the city of Los Angeles and baking their favorite treats. “My goal as a mother of a young girl is to mold her into the best version of herself and for her to have the utmost confidence, seeing herself the way her loved ones see her. Being a part of a project like this creates conversations that other women and myself didn’t have growing up. It’s important for women to hold up women in the world we live in today,” says Casey.
