THE VAGINA MONOLOGUES Runs Sept. 22-24

LP_The Vagina Monologues logoTHE VAGINA MONOLOGUES
Lumos Players
Sept. 22-24
Lakeview United Methodist Church [Maineville]

Directed by Corey McOsker-Nieman
Produced by Amy Haake

Cast: Jennifer Martin, Jess Link, McKenzie Kugler, Ashley Herbert, Nicole Forbus & Laurie Barber

THE VAGINA MONOLOGUES was written in 1996 by Eve Ensler and is meant to begin conversations about women’s sexuality, sexual violence and the stigmas around them.

However, this idea of the female experience being tied exclusively to people with a vagina is clearly dated, but we hope to use this piece to begin important conversations about gender, reproductive rights, transphobia and voter rights in our own community.

Please join us for this moving production and a continued conversation with the staff and cast following the performance.

Auditions Announced for THE VAGINA MONOLOGUES at Lumos Players

LP_logoTHE VAGINA MONOLOGUES is a play that was written in 1996 by Eve Ensler that is meant to begin conversations about women’s sexuality, sexual violence and the stigmas around them.

However, this idea of the female experience being tied only to those with a vagina is dated and we hope to have as diverse and inclusive a cast as possible- so casting is open to ALL who connect or identify in anyway with the words and message of Ensler’s work. We hope to see you at auditions.

ALMOST, MAINE Runs Aug. 4-6

LP_Almost Maine logoALMOST, MAINE
Lumos Players
Aug. 4-6
Lakeview UCC [Maineville]

Directed by Jennifer Martin

Cast: Jonathan Turbin as Pete, Darien Hewett as Ginette, Shelby Carter as Glory, Olivia Burkart as East, Michael Cline as Jimmy, Darien Hewett as Sandrine, Karen Sence as Waitress, Amy Haake as Maryalyn, David Hart as Steve, Michel Cline as Lendall, Shelby Carter as Gayle, Jonathan Turbin as Randy, David Hart as Chad, Amy Haake as Hope, Michael Cline as Man, Jonathan Turbin as Phil, Karen Sence as Marci, Shelby Carter as Rhonda & Olivia Burkart as Dave

A woman carries her heart, broken into nineteen pieces, in a small paper bag. A man shrinks to half his former size, after losing hope in love. A couple keep the love they have given each other in large red bags, or compress the mass into the size of a diamond. These playful and surreal experiences are commonplace in the world of John Cariani’s ALMOST, MAINE, where on one deeply cold and magical Midwinter Night, the citizens of Almost — not organized enough for a town, too populated for a wilderness — experience the life-altering power of the human heart. Relationships end, begin, or change beyond recognition, as strangers become friends, friends become lovers, and lovers turn into strangers. Propelled by the mystical energy of the aurora borealis and populated with characters who are humorous, plain-spoken, thoughtful, and sincere, ALMOST, MAINE is a series of loosely connected tales about love, each with a compelling couple at its center, each with its own touch of sorcery.
