‘Vagina Monologues’ returns to South Lake Tahoe

"The Vagina Monologues" returns to South Lake Tahoe for its 15th year this weekend.

"The Vagina Monologues" returns to South Shore for its 15th year this weekend — on Friday and Saturday, Feb. 24-25, a diverse cast of women will perform Eve Ensler's play to raise funds for Live Violence Free, Tahoe Youth & Family Services and Partners Against the Trafficking of Humans.

The story, along with its corresponding V-Day, is a global movement to end violence against women through raising funds and awareness.

"The award-winning play, 'The Vagina Monologues,' is based on V-Day founder/playwright Eve Ensler's interviews with more than 200 women. With humor and grace, the production celebrates women's sexuality and strength.

"Productions like this and other V-Day benefit events organized by volunteer activists take place around the world, [educating] millions of people about the reality of violence against women and girls," states a V-Day South Lake Tahoe press release.

This year's cast features members of the community, such as students, mothers and daughters — some are new to the stage, while others are seasoned performers.

In addition to the play, the event includes live music, a bar, silent auction and raffle. On Friday evening, attendees have the option to enjoy dinner beforehand — from 6-7:15 p.m., Tahoe Beach Retreat will provide a meal, and tickets must be purchased in advance.
