‘The Vagina Monologues’ Event Rescheduled for April 25 at Ferris

Vagina MonologuesFerris State University’s 10th anniversary performance of “The Vagina Monologues” has been rescheduled for 7:30 p.m. Thursday, April 25 in Williams Auditorium.

The performance, originally scheduled to kick off the university’s Women’s History Month celebration on Friday, March 1, was canceled due to a widespread power outage that closed Ferris’ Big Rapids campus and affected the greater Mecosta County area.

Sponsors of “The Vagina Monologues” can pick up their tickets on the day of the performance, said Avery Larson, public relations coordinator for the event. Tickets purchased online for the March 1 performance have been refunded, she said.

Tickets are $10, $5 for students with ID, available at the door. The first 30 students will be admitted free, courtesy of the Office of Multicultural Student Services. Online ticket sales will begin about two weeks before the April 25 performance, available here.

All proceeds from the event will go to Women’s Information Services, Inc. of Big Rapids, a shelter that provides support to domestic violence victims.

Students performing in Ferris’ production of activist Eve Ensler’s award-winning play are well-prepared, Larson said, so additional rehearsals for the rescheduled date will be minimal.

“When the power went out, there were a lot of questions about the performance being asked on social media,” Larson said. “After we announced the new date, I think a lot of people were understanding of the circumstances and are looking forward to the performance. Students should look for new posters and promotions around campus and stay updated through Facebook.”
