PIQUA — Edison State Community College will present “Women’s Untold Stories: An Evening of Music, Dance and Theater,” the Robinson Theater at the Piqua campus, Sept. 22 at 7 p.m.

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.

The show will begin with dancers from the Center Stage Academy in Troy.

In the evening’s main event, 18 college students and employees, community leaders and teens will take the stage and deliver monologues in answer to poet Muriel Rukeyser’s question, “What would happen if one woman told the truth about her life?”

The monologues 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; however donations to the Edison Foundation’s General Scholarship Fund will be accepted.
