“We are so proud to be in our 11th year! It has been a commitment to love!" said Angela Amoroso, executive director for Scripps Performing Arts and founder of Isabella’s Giraffe Club. “Each year we strive to stage an elegant event held in a non-competitive, nuturing environment that promotes self-esteem, self- confidence and an understanding for all the good that we can accomplish together.”

This year's show will feature American girls and their friends ages 6-14 years young. A brand new format will include an inspiring new narration modeling the qualities for happiness and success inspired by the stories of our favorite dolls.

Thank you so much for your interest in participating in our fundraiser for premature babies.
When the girls arrive at the audition, we remind them that this is not a beauty contest. Every American Girl is beautiful inside and out. This is an opportunity to build a community with the other girls and help the tiny babies at UCSD. The children will learn so much from contributing their time and talents to such a great cause!

At the audition we will conduct a mini-modeling workshop, they will walk the red carpet, practice pivot turns. They will smile and wave and everyone has a great time!!! They can wear whatever they like to the audition, some choose to get dressed up and some dress down it is your choice! Bring your dolls and prepare to have a great time. If you don't have a doll no worries we have extra's!

We are auditioning Girls ages 6-14 years. Sizes 6x-8 and 10.
