CANTON, Mo. — Culver-Stockton College will be presenting “The Vagina Monologues” in the Mabee Little Theater in the lower level of the Robert W. Brown Performing Arts Center in February.

Performances are scheduled for 7:30 p.m. on Feb. 13, 14 and 15, with a 3 p.m. matinee set for Feb. 16.

After conducting interviews with more than 200 women about their own encounters with sex, relationships, and violence, playwright Eve Ensler crafted their experiences into a series of stories designed to raise awareness and anger in reaction to violence against women. She performed these stories herself as monologues in 1996. Subsequent revisions using women of various ages have enhanced awareness of the extent of violence to more than youth.

Faculty and members of the community will join student performers to emphasize the scope of this issue. Dr. Haidee Heaton will direct “The Vagina Monologues,” which contains subject matter
that is adult in nature.

The ensemble cast consists of: 

  • Krista Barth, a senior English education major from Bloomington, Ill.
  • Vanessa Bolen, a senior psychology major from Beardstown, Ill.
  • Kaitlyn Conaway, a senior English education and theatre major from Steelville, Mo.

  • Emma Hackett, a freshman art major from Buffalo, Mo.
  • Brianna Holder, a junior music education major from Moberly, Mo.
  • Rebecca (Bex) Holley, a junior legal studies major from Thomson, Ill.

  • Carly Poteet, a senior elementary education major from Quincy, Ill.
  • Sam Scott, a senior psychology and criminal justice major from Metropolis, Ill.
