It’s almost February. For many, this is the time we begin to evoke romantic images of flowers, chocolates, and elegant dinners as we build up the ideals of Valentine’s Day. For us here at Boston GLOW, we are getting just excited for V-Day. For the 3rd year, we are embarking on our annual celebration of the V-Day movement by organizing, performing, and awareness raising through Boston’s only community based production of Eve Ensler’s The Vagina Monologues.
This year, nearly 40 women from all walks of life will join together in performance and volunteerism on March 23, 24, and 25. So what makes V-Day and The Vagina Monologues different? V-Day is a movement, not a day. It is a fundraising and awareness raising movement for all men and women focusing on ending violence against women and girls. The Vagina Monologues consists of stories from real women’s experiences across the world. These are stories of sexual empowerment, of confusion, of dating, of rape, of birth, of war, of connection. They will make you laugh, cry, scream, and question. Each monologue is a real woman’s story. Each monologue ensures that women’s voices are heard. Most importantly, the entire production is a fundraiser! This year, proceeds from the production will be supporting the Young Black Women’s Society, the YWCA Boston, and Boston GLOW.
So, hopefully you’re asking yourself – HOW CAN I BE INVOLVED?
Currently, we are looking for women of all ages, colors, shapes and sizes to perform in and assist with all elements of the V-Day experience (from ticket sales, promotion, community building, light design etc!) You DO NOT need any previous performing experience. You only need a commitment to ending violence against women and girls.
(As a note: only individuals who identify as female can perform in the Vagina Monologues, but we love and need male volunteers for the production and community building. All genders and backgrounds are needed to end violence against women and girls!)
We are holding two days of auditions:
Both audition days will be held at the YWCA Boston, 140 Clarendon Street, Boston MA.
You do not need to prepare a monologue for the audition.
If you would like to participate, but can’t attend an audition date please contact our director at firstname.lastname@example.org
March 23 at 7pm, 24 at 7pm, and 25 at 3pm
YWCA Boston – Kuumba Library
140 Clarendon Street
So come join the movement to end violence against women and girls!
