The Center for Pacific Asian Families presents The Vagina Monologues by Eve Ensler Friday, March 2, 2007, 8PM Aratani Japan American Theatre.

Actress Tamlyn Tomita leads the first all Asian and Pacific Islander cast in Los Angeles of the Obie award winning play about women empowerment through the reclaiming of their bodies, in particular, their vaginas. The Vagina Monologues has been performed for V-Day events in over 90 countries around the world with the intent of raising awareness and funds to end the violence against women and children. All proceeds from this performance will go to the Center for the Pacific Asian Family (CPAF), which runs shelters and prevention programs in Los Angeles County for Asian and Pacific Islander survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault and to the 2007 V-Day (www.vday.org) spotlight of women in conflict zones throughout the world. Don’t miss this very special performance! Join us to help stop violence against women in the Asian and Pacific Islander communities.

The show we’re putting on will have a very diverse API cast of established actors performing. Besides Tamlyn Tomita, we have Angela Oh (Korean American activist), Sheetal Sheth (South Asian American actress), and Janet Choi (KTLA newscaster). We have a conditional yes from Sandra Oh based on her PR schedule and are in contact with Margaret Cho, Kelly Hu, Ming Na, and Maggie Q. It’ll be the first all API cast in Los Angeles and the most ethnically diverse API performance of any V-Day event.

If you are interested in purchasing tickets, please contact Nancy Park at npark@scrippscollege.edu — come support the greater API community. Tickets start at just $10 for students.
