What are your plans for this winter break? We hope you'll be having fun, spending time with friends and family, and, oh, practicing for your Vagina Monologues' audition!
The Domestic Violence Advocacy Project at NYU Law School will be producing The Vagina Monologues and is looking for cast and committee members. The production, which will take place in February, is open to students from all NYU grad schools this year, including Wagner, Stern and Silver. Last year, one Wagner student participated and this year we want even more Wagner Women to be involved!
The 2010 inaugural production raised more than $3,000 for Sanctuary For Families and their “Adopt-A-Family” program, which supports victims of domestic violence. Last year, the amount increased to $4000! In addition to Adopt-A-Family, part of our proceeds this year will go to the 2012 V-Day Spotlight Campaign: The Women and Girls of Haiti.
Auditions for cast members, which will consist of short readings from the monologues, will be held on:
- Thursday, Jan. 19
- Friday, Jan. 20
- Sunday, Jan. 22
The production team is also looking for crew members and committees for:
For both cast and crew, no previous experience is necessary – just an enthusiasm for the project and a dedication to the mission to end violence toward women.
- Technical production support
- Ticket sales
- Organizing awareness-raising panels
Lastly, the team is also looking for submissions for the official NYU Graduate Women 2012 Vagina Monologues Logo which will likely be used on our t-shirts, programs, and promotional materials. If you would like to submit something, please email your design or questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
