Feb 9 - 26The Vagina Monologues

As part of "THE ONE BILLION RISING" Event this year, The Art Centre Theatre is proud to present for the 5th year in a row the VAGINA MONOLOGUES with profits going to area groups like "Hope's Door" The 2018 season will be the 20th anniversary of V-Day and the sixth year of One Billion Rising. In 2018, staging a production of The Vagina Monologues  is more than just a theatrical experience; it is an ARTISTIC UPRISING, a RADICAL act, an ACT OF RESISTANCE.  An Obie Award-winning whirlwind tour of a forbidden zone, THE VAGINA MONOLOGUES 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."

This production is made possible through "VDAY" and with special arrangement through the "VSPOT

Feb 16 - 25:  To Kill a Mockingbird

Scout is a young girl in a quiet southern town, She is about to experience the dramatic events that will affect the rest of her life. She and her brother, Jem, are being raised by their widowed father, Atticus, and by a strongminded housekeeper, Calpurnia. Wide-eyed Scout is fascinated with the sensitively revealed people of her small town, but, from the start, there's a rumble of thunder just under the calm surface of the life here. The black people of the community have a special feeling about Scout's father and she doesn't know why. A few of her white friends are inexplicably hostile and Scout doesn't understand this either. Unpleasant things are shouted and the bewildered girl turns to her father. Atticus, a layer, explains that he's defending a young Negro wrongfully accused of a grave crime. Since this is causing such an upset, Scout wants to know why he's doing it. "Because if I didn't," her father replies, "I couldn't hold my head up."
