Auditions set for "Vagina Monologues" performance

Auditions for one of the most head-turning stage shows from the past decade will be held next week at Pittsburg State University.

Organizers of the PSU 2008 performance of Eve Ensler’s “The Vagina Monologues,” will hold auditions at two different times and locations on Wednesday, Nov. 14. The first session will be from 12:30-1:30 p.m. in the Prairie Room, and the second session will be from 5-6 p.m. in the Collegiate Room. Both rooms are located in the Overman Student Center.

Students and members of the community are invited to audition for the show, which will run Feb 8-9, 2008, at PSU. The benefit production is being sponsored by the PSU Women’s Studies Club.

Past performances at Pitt State have raised more than $6,000, money which was donated to the Crisis Resource Center of Southeast Kansas. This year, the organization will receive 90 percent of the proceeds, with 10 percent going to V-Day’s 2008 spotlight campaign “Women of New Orleans.” In 2007, more than 3,000 “V-Day” events were held around the world in a global movement to end violence against women.
