‘Monologues’ at CMU features new material, benefits charity
The Mesa Experimental Theatre at Colorado Mesa University will be the setting for V-Day 2014 featuring benefit performances of Eve Ensler’s “The Vagina Monologues.”
Directed by senior student Jordan Hoyle, the latest version of the play will be presented at 7:30 p.m. Thursday through Saturday, March 20–22, by CMU’s MET Theatre. The performances contain new monologues never before performed in Grand Junction.
Proceeds from the performance will be given to Hilltop’s Latimer House and the V-Day campaign, a global activist movement to end violence against women and girls. The V-Day campaign raises funds and awareness through benefit productions of “The Vagina Monologues,” a news release said.
“The Vagina Monologues” explores the mystery, humor, pain, power, wisdom, outrage and excitement buried in women’s experiences and is rated R for strong sexual content and language.
Tickets cost $10 for adults, $8 for seniors and $6 for students, and are available online at coloradomesa.edu/mosstickets or at the CMU box office, 248-1604.
