"Penn State University Brandywine The Vagina Monologues” will be held on campus at 6:30 p.m. March 22 and at 2 p.m. March 23, in the Main Building Auditorium, Room 101.

Faculty, staff, students and Penn State alumni will serve as actors and volunteers for the performance, which aims to educate the campus and local community about sexual violence against women and girls while raising funds for the cause. Brandywine is one of 5,800 organizations worldwide to host a performance of “The Vagina Monologues.”

Both performances are open to the public. Student admission is $5 and general admission is $8. Proceeds will benefit Family Support Line, a local nonprofit organization that aids children and their families in addressing the distress caused by child sexual abuse. Family Support Line has been utilizing in-depth prevention programs and dedicated treatments to provide support to victims of child sexual abuse for 25 years, according to its website.

Penn State Brandywine Counseling Services will host several workshops to educate students about sexual violence and to encourage them to get involved in the performance. Workshops will be held at 12:30 p.m. Jan. 30, at 11:30 a.m. Feb. 5 and 12, and 12:30 p.m. Feb. 20, in the Tomezsko Classroom Building, Room 103.
