her hand at a different art - theatre.

Crowe joins a cast of women of all ages for The Vagina Monologues, the

Co-produced by Malaspina's theatre department and students' union, the
cast of players includes Laura Johnston, Laura Gainey, Lorna McNeil, Pat
Donaldson, Staci Gauvreau, Tara Mitchell, Vanessa Jones, Jenn Stuart,
Tabetha Wood, Kristin Robinson, Shannon Matthews, Fiona Walsh, Maria

Showtimes are 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday (Feb. 11-12) and 2 p.m. Sunday
(Feb. 13).

Tickets are $10 through the students' union, Bella Nail Studio and
Lobelia Lair.
