Benefit Production of The Vagina Monologues March 3-5 at UNO

Omaha -The Women's Resource Center at the University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO) will present a benefit production of Eve Ensler's The Vagina Monologues in conjunction with the 2006 No Limits Conference March 3-5 at UNO.

The production, directed by Sonali Kumar, will be performed in Eppley Auditorium in the Eppley Administration Building on the UNO campus Friday through Sunday, March 3-5.  The house will open at 7 p.m. with a 7:30 p.m. curtain for all performances.  The March 5 performance will be ASL interpreted.  A talk-back session with the director, designers and cast will follow the March 4 performance.

This year, more than 1,150 communities around the world are hosting V-Day benefits to raise funds for ending violence against women.  More than $4 million was raised last year through performances of The Vagina Monologues.

"Hot on the heels of their success, UNO has joined this global movement as part of the V-Day 2006 College Campaign," Kumar said.  V-Day Omaha 2006 will benefit Heartland Family Service, which provides a variety of services to protect children, help adults and strengthen families.  Founded in Omaha in 1875, the agency serves 40,000 people annually in 12 Nebraska counties.

Tickets for the March 3-5 performances can be obtained through the UNO Women's Resource Center on the first floor of the Milo Bail Student Center.  As all proceeds benefit Heartland Family Service, tickets are a suggested donation of $10.  They may be purchased at the door, by e-mail to tgobagoba@mail.unomaha.edu or by calling 402.554.2730.

For more information about the production, contact Tumelo Gobagoba at 402.554.2730.
