'Vagina Monologues' staged at Bowker Auditorium Feb. 15-17
In celebration of the 15th anniversary of the V-Day organization, “One Billion Rising” has been launched, encouraging one billion people to rise up and state why they are dedicated to ending violence against women. At UMass Amherst this semester, a group of women is putting together a production of “The Vagina Monologues” in support of the “One Billion Rising” campaign.
Performances take place at Bowker Auditorium on Friday, Feb. 15 and Saturday, Feb. 16 at 7 p.m. and Sunday, Feb. 17 at 3 p.m.
Tickets are $5 for students, low-income and seniors, $10 for the general public at the Fine Arts Center Box Office, 545-2511 or 800-999-UMAS (outside the local calling area) and online. Excess tickets will be sold the night of each show at the door in Bowker, but tickets sell fast, so advanced purchase is advised.
Proceeds go to V-Day movement to end violence against women and the Center for Women and Community.
The event is sponsored by the Center for Women and Community and VOX - Students for Choice.
