'Vagina Monologues' at Dalton for two shows

Feb. 3, 2010

KALAMAZOO--The 12th annual student performances of Eve Ensler's critically acclaimed "The Vagina Monologues" will be staged this weekend in the Dalton Center Recital Hall at Western Michigan University.

Shows begin at 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday, Feb. 5-6. Tickets are $5 and are available at the door.

WMU student organization Womyn's Equality is again staging the performances. Each year near Valentine's Day, thousands of women around the world perform "The Vagina Monologues" to benefit the V-Day campaign, which calls for an end to violence against women and girls.

Womyn's Equality performances of "Monologues" are directed by Jessica Hughes. The cast of WMU students and alumnae includes Saskia Boggs, Genae Carter, Bailey Champagne, Ashley Choker, Lauren Czap, Sammie Eyde, Katie Fish, Meghan Madigan, Kelsey Nimmo, Christy Nobbs, Jenna Pagan, Kim Pagan, Arcelia Stoner, Jessica Turner, Carolyn Walters and Ann Warsop.

"The Vagina Monologues" was nominated for Drama Desk and Helen Hayes awards and won an Obie Award in 1997.
