 This one-time-only performance will be presented at the Stepping Stone Playhouse in the Queen Ka‘ahumanu Shopping Center on Valentine’s Day, Sunday, Feb. 14, at 7 p.m.

Tickets are $15 at the door. There are no pre-sales or reservations and seating is limited, so it is recommended that attendees arrive early. The box office opens at 6:30 p.m.

The goal of V-Day Maui 2010 is to raise awareness to stop violence against women and girls, and to raise funds to assist Women Helping Women in its mission to end domestic violence through advocacy, education and prevention, and to offer safety, support and empowerment to women and children, victims of domestic violence.

V-Day Maui 2010 is being produced in association with Maui Academy of Performing Arts.

V-Day is a global movement to end violence against women and girls that raises funds and awareness through benefit productions of Playwright/Founder Eve Ensler’s award winning play, The Vagina Monologues, and other artistic works. In 2009, over 4200 V-Day benefit events took place produced by volunteer activists in the U.S. and around the world, educating millions of people about the reality of violence against women and girls.

To date, the V-Day movement has raised over $70 million and educated millions about ending violence against women, crafted international educational, media and PSA campaigns, launched the Karama program in the Middle East, reopened shelters, and funded over 11,000 community-based anti-violence programs and safe houses in the Democratic Republic Of Congo, Haiti, Kenya, South Dakota, Egypt and Iraq.
