Now accepting The Vagina Monologues (TVM) Director applications!

Deadline to apply is November 1st!

Being a Co-Director of the UNHSHARPP, student production of TVM is an amazing experience!

  • A challenging yet rewarding experience
  • A leadership experience like no other
  • An opportunity to showcase your creative talents
  • A fabulous addition to your resume
  • An awareness venue to give voice to women's issues

Before you fill out an application, here are several items to keep in mind:

  1. There will be two Co-Directors of TVM with the expectation of shared responsibilities of the production.
  2. There are two performances and the dates for this year are TVM is Friday, 2/23/2018 and Saturday, 2/24/2018. You must be available for both  performance dates.
  3. The time commitment is big and you will need to host multiple rehearsal dates for your cast/crew. The production takes place a month after the end of Winter Break which leaves four weeks for rehearsals before the performances. The reason there are co-directors is to help share the job responsibilities, this is especially true around availability for rehearsals.
  4. Organizational skills are key to a successful production.
  5. There are creative restrictions which are part of the licensing agreement (between SHARPP and Eve Ensler, the founder of The Vagina Monologues) that must be adhered.
  6. Directors are in charge of a creative theme, casting, rehearsals, supervising your cast and crew, set design and other production duties. SHARPP handles all the marketing, production funds, room rental, sound equipment and ticket sales.
  7. Deadline to apply November 1, 2017

Where it all began

Hailed by The New York Times as “funny” and “poignant” and by the Daily News as “intelligent” and “courageous,” Eve Ensler’s, Vagina Monologues, dives into the mystery, humor, pain, power, wisdom, outrage and excitement buried in women’s experiences.

The award-winning play is based on V-Day Founder/playwright Eve Ensler's interviews with more than 200 women. With humor and grace the piece celebrates women’s sexuality and strength. Through this play and the liberation of this one word, countless women throughout the world have taken control of their bodies and their lives. For more than twelve years, The Vagina Monologues has given voice to experiences and feelings not previously exposed in public. Once a year, in February, March, and April, Eve allows groupsaround the world to produce a performance of the play and use the proceeds for local programs that work to end violence against women and girls.

V-Day is born

On Valentines Day, 1998, Eve, with a group of women in New York City, established V-Day. Set up as a 501(c)(3) and originally staffed by volunteers, the organization's seed money came from a star-studded, sold out benefit performance at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York, a show that raised $250,000 in a single evening. V-Day's mission is simple. It demands that violence against women and girls must end.

Today, V-Day is a global activist movement to end violence against women and girls. V-Day is a catalyst that promotes creative events to increase awareness, raise money, and revitalize the spirit of existing anti-violence organizations. V-Day generates broader attention for the fight to stop violence against women and girls, including rape, battery, incest, female genital mutilation (FGM), and sex slavery.

One Billion Rising

In conjunction with the 15th anniversary, V-Day launched its most ambitious campaign to date - ONE BILLION RISING. The concept of the campaign is simple. If you take into account the statistic that 1 out of 3 women will experience violence in her lifetime, you are left with the staggering statistic that over 1 billion women on this planet will be impacted by violence. On V-Day's 15th Anniversary, 2.14.13, we are inviting ONE BILLION women and those who love them to WALK OUT, DANCE, RISE UP, and DEMAND an end to this violence. V-Day wants the world to see our collective strength, our numbers, our solidarity across borders.
