Director Rhiannyn McCauley And Found Space Theatre Company Receive Standing Ovation at NMU
Marquette, Michigan - NMU student Rhiannyn McCauley made her directorial debut this week with the newly-created, student-led, Found Space Theatre Company performing The Vagina Monologues by Eve Ensler in the Lydia M. Olson Library Atrium at NMU.
Today's performance played to an overflowing, enthusiastic, and sometimes tearful audience. The actors brought fierce emotion to their performances and brilliantly succeeded in captivating their audience from beginning to end. This play brought stories to life about empowerment and the end of objectification and submission of female glory, strength, and power. This performance was a call to action to end torture, rape, and mutilation of females. Ultimately, this performance celebrated freedom and courage to stand free and to be seen and heard without threat of destruction.
A standing ovation demontrated the rich appreciation of the audience for the moving performances by all.
Congratulations, Rhiannyn and FSTC!
