Creative 360’s BlackBox 180 Dinner Theatre returns with a two-night engagement of The Vagina Monologues on Friday, February 11 and Saturday, February 12. Both shows begin at 8:00 pm. The cast includes Denyse Clayton, Debbie Lake, Susie Polito, Marci Rogers and Carol Rumba.

Eve Ensler’s Obie Award-winning tour of a forbidden zone, introduces a wildly divergent gathering of female voices, including a six-year-old girl, a septuagenarian New Yorker, a vagina workshop participant, a woman who witnesses the birth of her granddaughter, a Bosnian survivor of rape, and a feminist happy to have found a man who “liked to look at it.”

The Vagina Monologues is frequently performed during February, March and April to benefit organizations working to end violence against women and girls. A portion of the proceeds of the February 11 and 12 performances will be donated to Shelterhouse, a non-profit serving Midland and Gladwin counties that is committed to providing safety, shelter, advocacy and counseling to survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault.

Creative 360 (formerly Creative Spirit Center) is located at 1517 Bayliss in Midland. Shows are Friday, February 11 at 8:00pm and Saturday, February 12 at 8:00pm. Tickets are $26/$23 members and includes dinner (A selection of soups and salad provided by Café American and chocolate covered strawberries…comfort food for a night out!)
