Somerville-Spring Hill Vagina Monologues!

It is my great pleasure to announce that a dear friend and myself (Whitney) are organizing and performing in VDay Somerville-Spring Hill's production of The Vagina Monologues. I became involved with this play--and the VDay movement--as a freshman in college, when the play was banned on Providence College's campus for "vulgar content", despite its message of stopping all violence against women and girls around the world. Since then, I have been performing and participating in The Vagina Monologues as a college student and now as a community member.

This year's cast has women from Somerville, Cambridge, Boston, Arlington, Brockton, and Providence, Rhode Island. Each woman has their story as to why they became involved, but there is a common thread of community and solidarity for women's rights locally and globally.

This year, we are producing this informative and poignant play at the Center for the Arts at the Armory, located at 191 Highland Avenue in Somerville, Massachusetts. There is parking located behind the building, and is along the 88 and 90 bus lines, which both stop at Davis Square. Tickets can be purchased online at http://vdayspringhill.brownpapertickets.com. All tickets are will call, and there will be tickets available for purchase at the doors, spacing permitted.

For more information on the show, beneficiaries, and VDay in general, you may visit our Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/vdaysomerville

Performance dates are Wednesday, February 27th, and Friday, March 1st (but the New Wave group is going to the Wednesday performance only). Doors will open at 6:30pm, with the performance beginning at 7pm. There will be raffle items, baked goods, beer and wine, and t-shirts available for purchase.

All proceeds from both performances will benefit three Boston-based organizations that support women and girls:

    Hi everyone, Is anyone taking the T? Would Davis Sq be too far for everyone to meet and walk? Or would you like to meet up in front of the Armory? Let me know. If I don't get any responses, I will be in front of the Armory at 6:30pm. I look forward to meeting you all!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
