The Vagina Monologues Return to Wagner College

vagina-monologuesA crowd pleasing favorite is returning to Wagner! Every year, Completely Student Productions presents a variety of plays and musicals on campus! However, there is always one production theatre lovers and women can count on attending. Returning tonight for the 2012-2013 school year, Resident Educaiton and Completely Student Productions are pleased to present The Vagina Monologues.

The Vagina Monologues is a play by Eve Ensler made up of several monologues all performed by women which each describe and tell a different story of the feminine experience. Several examples of monologues are titled My Angry VaginaBecause He Liked to Look At It and I was there in the room. Every year, there is also a new monologue added to reflect a current issue women are facing and dealing with world wide. The show is performed thousands of times a year around the nation to not only raise funds for charities but awareness for women.

Picture 2The Vagina Monologues is an annual event that takes place at Wagner College. Each year, all the funds raised at the event go to support a different charity that is related to women. This year, all benefits of the event will go to Safe Horizon on Staten Island: Taking Women of Violence from Crisis to Control. How can you help out? You can donate by entering to win a raffle, purchasing a snack or donating money at the door. The year’s production is directed by Lisa Tinglum, who is pictured above.

I always get excited for The Vagina Monologues to return to Wagner each year. While Wagner is a campus where there is definitely no shortage of theatrical events taking place, The Vagina Monolgues always proves to be different. MAny people, some of whom have never attended another theatre production, come out to support this night of hilarious monologues that all goes towards supporting a fantastic cause. Its a great night filled with lots of talent but even more, it’s a greta night for the Wagner community. If you have the chance, don’t miss this.
