V-Day returns to Sedona

Tickets are going fast for the ground-breaking play "The Vagina Monologues," which returns to Sedona on Friday, April 12, as part of V-day Sedona 2013.

Transforming for both cast and audience alike, this funny irreverent and poignant show features a diverse group of women from the Verde Valley.

The Los Angeles Times said of the V-Day charity. "Eve Ensley's The Vagina Monologues is not just a play anymore. It's a social movement." In Sedona organizers have raised nearly $65,000 with performances of" The Vagina Monologues" in the past five years.

This year's production of the Vagina Monologues once again features an array of talented women from the Verde Valley. Combined over the past five years well over 250 different women from the area have performed in the annual benefit production. There are new monologues this year, hilarious new facts and many surprises. The show is being completely restaged. Past year people who have also seen the show in other places have commented that the Verde Valley Production is better than or rivals what they have seen in major cities.

"I am humbled and proud to a part of this amazing charity and want to thank everyone who has been involved in the past four years," says V-Day Organizer Mindy Mendelsohn, "Whether they have been a part of the cast, a sponsor, donated a prize or bought a ticket to the show together we have made a tremendous difference to the Verde Valley Sanctuary. "

The money raised for Verde Valley Sanctuary has gone for things such as a new roof and adding new beds to house women and children often in dire life threatening circumstances. "I think we sometimes forget how powerful we are individually." says Mendelsohn "The audience will have an incredible, funny poignant evening, and while they are enjoying themselves they will also be making a crucial contribution to women and children they don't even know."

V-Day Sedona's production of "The Vagina Monologues" takes place on Friday April 12 at 7:30 p.m. at the Sedona Creative Life Center. Tickets are tax deductible and 90 percent of the proceeds go to the Verde Valley Sanctuary with 10 percent going back to the world-wide campaign to stop violence against women and girls.

You can purchase tickets by calling 1-800-838-3006 or by going online to Tickets are also available at Twice Nice Thrift Store in Sedona. For more information about V-Day Sedona please call Mindy Mendelsohn at 203-9215.
