Rehearsals will start the following week. Multiple scheduled rehearsals and meetings will be mandatory, so individuals will need to be very committed to the performance.

Tahoe SAFE Alliance has long leveraged performance theater as an important way to bring awareness around the prevention of violence and abuse. This will be the agency’s 7th showing of The Vagina Monologues for V-Day, a global activist movement to end violence against women and girls. For the first time this performance will incorporate The Power of Voices, our director’s artistic vision of diversifying community involvement in a play that restricts the monologues to be read by women. This means that we are encouraging men to be part of this important movement.
Tahoe SAFE Alliance has many volunteer positions open. If you are interested in volunteering to help make The Vagina Monologues a fantastic experience for the community, please contact Hayley Adamski at HayleyA@tahoesafealliance.org .
