LVC Students and Staff Stand Up Against Violence Toward Women
03.20.13 |
Lebanon Valley College students will present the annual production of Eve Ensler’s “Vagina Monologues” Saturday, March 23 at 2 and 7 p.m. on the Leedy Theater stage inside Mund College Center. Tickets are free for LVC students, $5 for non-LVC students, and $10 for the general public.

“The show contains a group of very diverse women who come together with one common goal: to raise awareness and end violence against women,” said junior Rachel Snavely, show director. “It is important that we continue to perform the show every year to continue raising awareness. We won’t stop performing until the violence stops.”

“Vagina Monologues” is a series of monologues about sex, love, rape, menstruation, and other female issues. The show has been performed in more than 130 countries and translated into 45 languages.

“This show allows us to talk about issues that are normally considered taboo. It gives women a voice. At the end of each show, we ask everyone that has experienced or knows someone who has experienced violence against women to stand. Almost every single person in the theater stands,” Snavely said. “Our goal is to eliminate the need for people to rise at the end of this show.”

All proceeds from the show will benefit organizations devoted to eradicating violence against women. Canned goods will also be accepted to benefit local shelters.

Rachel Snavely ’14, Ashley Artz ’14, McKenna Snyder ’14, and Erin Rider ’14 will be directing the show. Faculty and staff cast members include Venus Ricks, director of multicultural affairs; Dr. Cathy Romagnolo, associate professor of English; Dr. Stevie Falk, director of counseling; and Dr. Karen Walker, associate professor of education and director of secondary education.

Student monologists include Stephanie Aguedlo ’16, Jessica McKelvin ’16, Brittany Baird ’15, Samantha Devine ’15, Bethany Mary ’15, Christine Sangco ’15, Samantha Walter ’15, Morgan Hartmoyer ’15, Suzette Madanat ’15, Charelle Bryant ’14, Carli Weldon ’14, Melissa Pavone ’14, Laura Bremmer ’13, Jennifer Koch ’13, Chloe Skylakon ’13, and Samantha Oates ’13.

Alumni and community cast members include Jessica Scola, Brianna Jones, Megan Repoley, Ashley Conzelman, Theodora Sakellarides, Trish Harkins, Robyn Stine, Christa Levko, Rachel Beazley, Ashley Orndorff, Alison Reed, Christi Garrison, and Aprhodite Sakellarides.
