This production of The Vagina Monologues has been very challenging. Three rehearsals have been cancelled due to extreme weather conditions but Shawn P. Williams isn’t worried. This is his fourth year presenting The Vagina Monologues.  He’s prepared to handle whatever obstacles he’s presented.  He’s assembled a fantastic cast and he knows they are capable of handling a little adversity.  Survival and triumph over circumstances is what V-Day is about.
Shawn heard about the play several years ago but didn’t give it much thought.  Talking with FrankieDarcell about the ins and outs of domestic violence convinced him to be a part of V-Day.  Shawn says, “The production opens your eyes to women’s issues across the world.”

This year’s production has a large and talented team of women performing.  Many of the ladies have participated in previous years.  Shawn is confident that they will all “bring it” when they hit the stage no matter how many rehearsals he has.

Antionett Davis and Stacey Johnson are two of the women that will grace the stage this year.
Antionett Davis loves to dance, act, and sing as well.  She spends her free time with her family.  She also has lots of fun with her church family. Antionett puts God first in everything she does.

The Vagina Monologues is only Antionette’s second play.  She enjoys being in a amazing production and part of the cast.  She’s looking forward to her performance.  She is thankful for the support of her family and friends.

Stacey Johnson is married and has two young children.  She is a Detroit native, who studied Drama at ML King HS under the direction of Dr. Denise Cotton (Founder of Detroit Performing Arts HS).  She attended Dillard University and pursued a BA in Criminal Justice Administration at Concordia College (Ann Arbor, MI)
