Montgomery College Students to Perform ‘The Vagina Monologues’ Proceeds from Production on April 14 to Benefit Women’s Organizations
Students from the Montgomery College women’s studies program will present a special production of “The Vagina Monologues,” by Eve Ensler, on Saturday, April 14 at 7:30 p.m. The performance will take place at the College’s Theatre Arts Arena, located in the Theatre Arts Building, 51 Mannakee Street, Rockville.
“The Vagina Monologues” is a collection of monologues that Eve Ensler wrote after interviewing hundreds of women. The resulting play celebrates women and works to raise awareness about the issues that affect women, such as sexuality, relationships, and domestic violence. These intimate portraits reveal women’s innermost thoughts and feelings about their lives and their bodies. “The Vagina Monologues” contains frank language and subject matter, and it is intended for a mature audience.
Montgomery College students are involved in all roles of the production from acting to behind the scenes. Students and faculty are team-coaching and team-directing the production.
Tickets cost $12 for general admission and $7 for students and seniors. To request tickets, e-mail the Women’s Studies program at: firstname.lastname@example.org. The performance will have ASL interpretation. For disability-related accommodations, call Genevieve Carminati, program coordinator, at 240-567-7446.
All proceeds will go to organizations that work to stop violence against women and girls. The V-Day Spotlight this year is on the women and girls of Haiti.
