Sunday’s performance is at 2 p.m. Doors open at 1 with the pre-show beginning at 1:15. A silent auction, featuring art and feminist themed goods and services, will be held prior to each performance.

This year, the production is directed by LLCC Theatre student August Roy and produced by Dr. Deborah Brothers, professor of English. Cast members include Annisa Kumerow, ReBecca Young, Valerie Perrero, Audrey Holmes, Amber Berman, Sarah Kiliman, Angela Case, Brenda Protz and Sara Kilman.
The production is part of the “V-Day College Campaign” to raise awareness of issues related to violence against women and girls around the world. Proceeds from the event will be donated to the Prairie Coalition Against Sexual Assault (PCASA), the Sojourn Center and Eve Ensler's V-Day Foundation. Past productions at LLCC have raised more than $10,000 for V-Day and local organizations dedicated to this cause.
