V-Day Lawrence University will perform Eve Ensler’s “The Vagina Monologues” again this February. Performances will be held on Feb. 25 at 3 p.m. and 8 p.m. and on Feb. 26 at 8 p.m. in Cloak Theatre of the Lawrence Music-Drama Center, 420 E. College. Ave. Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for students and may be purchased at the Lawrence University Box Office, 920-832-6749.
“The Vagina Monologues” has been performed in cities all across the nation and at hundreds of college campuses. It has inspired a dynamic grassroots movement—V-Day—to stop violence against women.
This is V-Day Lawrence University’s fifth year performing the monologues. Through the performance V-Day hopes to generate awareness, raise funds to end violence against women, as well as provide a night of entertainment. Junior Brianne Mueller is directing this year’s show.
V-Day generates broader attention for the fight to stop violence against women and girls, including rape, battery, and incest.
Through V-Day campaigns, local volunteers and college students produce annual benefit performances of “The Vagina Monologues” to raise awareness and funds for anti-violence groups within their own communities.
Proceeds from the V-Day Lawrence University performances will benefit the Fox Valley Sexual Assault Crisis Center, Men Can Stop Rape and KIWOHEDE. This is the fifth year that V-Day will support the Fox Valley SACC, a local organization that provides a variety of important services for those affected by sexual assault. Men Can Stop Rape is a national organization that focuses on ending rape and sexual violence through education. KIWOHEDE is an organization in Tanzania that educates, shelters and rehabilitates women rescued from sexual slavery and domestic abuse.
