Women's Untold Stories: An Evening of Music, Dance, and Theater

 L to R: Performers Brenda Morand and Lottie Tweed.
Music, dance, and theater are coming to the Robinson Theater at Edison State Community College in Piqua on Thursday, September 22, 2016.

Sponsored by the Diversity Committee as a benefit for the Edison Foundation's General Scholarship Fund, the program will feature women from the college and the community displaying their talents as they salute girls and women.

At 7 p.m., the show will begin with dancers from the Center Stage Academy in Troy.

For the evening's main event, 18 area college students/employees, community leaders, and teens will take the stage and deliver monologs in answer to poet Muriel Rukeyser's question, "What would happen if one woman told the truth about her life?"

The monologs are original and feature diverse themes from sex trafficking to emotional and physical poverty to communication lapses.

Following the theater production, the audience and performers will be invited to dance to the piano music of Brenda Cobbs-Allen.

Admission is free of charge, and those who would like to make contributions to the Edison Foundation's General Scholarship Fund are encouraged to do so.

The Diversity Committee at Edison Community College is committed to advancing the College's academic mission and goals in the areas of diversity, equality, inclusion and human rights by leading efforts to define, assess, and cultivate diversity as both an institutional value and an academic priority.

For more information, contact Dr. Vivian Blevins at or (937) 778-3815.
