Calendar Listing

CSM Auditions for “The Vagina Monologues.” 7 p.m., Feb. 8. College of Southern Maryland, Prince Frederick Campus, Flagship Building, Room 119, 115 J.W. Williams Road, Prince Frederick. The CSM Theatre Company will hold auditions for its upcoming Cause Theatre production, “The Vagina Monologues.” CSM’s Cause Theatre offers several touring shows per semester, each bringing to light a different social issue, designed to be informative and challenging. Each is followed by a facilitated discussion. “The Vagina Monologues” by Eve Ensler is a play that addresses the issues of sexual violence and disempowerment in a provocative, entertaining manner. The script is based on Ensler’s interviews with more than 200 women about their personal experiences and includes topics such as genital mutilation, incest and rape. Although the play has been well received by audiences in many countries, it has also generated controversy. The play has spawned a grassroots movement, The V-Day Campaign, with a goal to end violence against women and girls in the global context. Auditions will consist of cold readings from the script. This production will be performed at all three CSM campuses, Feb. 25-27. 301-934-7828, 240-725-5499, 443-550-6199, 301-870-2309, Ext. 7828 or BxOffc@csmd.edu. http://www.csmd.edu/Arts.
