These talks will happen the 4th Saturday of each month February - November

Venus is the longest running regional women's theatre in the nation. Venus has produced 70 woman-empowering productions! We want to talk about it. Please join us is this Ted-talk-like format. Each month will highlight a different facet of the work at Venus. February will welcome playwright Claudia Barnett from Tennessee. The title of this talk will be "Kill or Be Killed". We'll explore Claudia's expertise on Women Who Kill, a class that she teaches at her University. And we'll talk about all of the plays of hers Venus has produced. In March, we will focus on Theatre at Arts Advocacy. We'll be diving back into the pre-Venus days. The days of Venus Envy where we led Take Back the Night Marches and workshops at the House of Ruth. Elena Velasco will be one of our speakers, She was an original Venus Envy player. In April we will take a Mentorship focus and we hope to welcome Migdalia Cruz from NYC. The list goes on and on. There are two ticket types. A General Admission which will include coffee service hosted by Sip and attendance to the talk as well as the feedback session to follow. There will also be a VIP option. This will include a Salt Bath at Salt on Main as well as Dinner at Olive on Main with many of the speakers of the evening. We hope you will join us as we celebrate our rich herstory and share the journey at Venus!!
