REACH sponsoring The Vagina Monologues
RUMFORD -– REACH, the sexual assault support center for Oxford County and the towns of Bridgton and Harrison, is
once again sponsoring the production of Eve Ensler’s The Vagina Monologues.
Last year, the production took place at Oxford Hills Comprehensive High School in South Paris to a full house. To make the production accessible to other areas of Oxford County, this year’s 7 p.m. event will take place at two venues:
Friday, May 6 at Telstar High School Auditorium, Bethel, and Friday, May 13 at Mtn. Valley High School Auditorium, Rumford.
Ticket can be purchased at Books N Things, Main Street, Bethel; Bartash Gifts and Cards, 98 Congress St., Rumford; Red Hill Natural Foods, 228 Waldo St., Rumford, and the REACH office, 1 E. Main St., S. Paris. Ticket
prices are $12 for advance purchase; $15 at the door on performance nights; $10 for senior citizens and students.
REACH has announced the call for Readers of the monologues; no acting experience is required. The performance is by local women. While all cast members are required to be women, men and older teenagers are welcome and encouraged to attend the performances. There will also be displays and refreshments.
The Vagina Monologues (TVM) is the award-wining play based on V-Day Founder/playwright Eve Ensler’s interviews with more than 200 women. With humor and grace the piece celebrates women’s sexuality and strength.
Through this play and the liberation of this one word, countless women throughout the world have taken control of their bodies and their lives. For more than twelve years, The Vagina Monologues has given voice to experiences and feelings not previously expressed in public. A major goal of the production is to raise awareness about, and end sexual violence worldwide.
REACH has been providing services to survivors of sexual assault and abuse and their loved ones for almost 30 years. For more information on The Vagina Monologues production please contact the REACH office at 743-9777, or send email to email@example.com.
