‘Vagina Monologues’ at Valhalla Grand Hall

The fifth South Lake Tahoe presentation of “The Vagina Monologues” will take place in the Valhalla Grand Hall at 7 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 9.

Half of the cast are first-time members of the show.

“We are reaching out to different people in the community,” said organizer Jennifer Gurecki. “It’s more than raising money for the beneficiaries. It’s educating and empowering women.”

Proceeds from the event go to South Lake Tahoe’s Women’s Center, Tahoe Youth & Family Services and Court Appointed Special Advocates. Ten percent of the proceeds from “The Vagina Monologues,” which is showing all over the world for the 10th time, will, in the United States, go to victims of Hurricane Katrina.

Eve Ensler’s script has two additions: a spotlight on the women of New Orleans and the Gulf South monologue, which Gurecki will read, and “Under The Burka,” which Brandi Schlagel will present.

Antonia Gonzalez directed a presentation of “The Vagina Monologues” in Spanish on Feb. 4 before a sellout crowd at the Al Tahoe gymnasium, Gurecki said. Pamela Taylor is the director of Saturday’s English version at Valhalla.

Tickets are $20.

More than 2,000 communities presented “V-Day” events, raising more than $6 million last year. The mission is to heighten awareness about violence against women and girls. In its first nine years, V-Day has raised more than $50 million.
