MISSOULA – The University of Montana Women’s Resource Center will host its annual production of “The Vagina Monologues” at 7 p.m. Friday, Feb. 15, in UM’s Dennison Theatre. Doors will open at 6:30 p.m., and cash-only $10 tickets will be available at the door.

Proceeds from the event will benefit UM’s Student Advocacy Resource Center, a campus organization dedicated to helping survivors of interpersonal violence and discrimination through support and advocacy.

Located in the University Center on campus, UM’s Women’s Resource Center is a student-run, consensus-based organization dedicated to raising awareness about women’s and gender issues through community events and outreach. The production is also supported by The Good Work Studio, a Missoula art collaborative that fosters growth and celebration of the theatre arts.

“The Vagina Monologues” is an all-gendered, all-bodied production dedicated to voicing the experiences of marginalized populations. This year’s production will include an epilogue with original monologues, followed by a panel discussion about both the cultural value and limitations of The Vagina Monologues 20 years after they were first written and performed by Eve Ensler.
