This show is written by a woman from real women's stories, will be performed and directed by women, and is a benefit for the women, men, and children in our community. What we love about Love, Loss, and What I Wore is that it uses humor, warmth and sometimes sadness to illustrate the wide and varied experiences women have as we travel through our wonderful and complicated journeys. The play is a series of funny, touching, sometimes sad monologues, and a bit of dialogue, about real women's lives. The stories were compiled and written by the late Nora Ephron. We hope you'll bring your sister, your girfriend, your mom, your wife, your partner, your daughter and your friend to this very special event.

A cash bar will open pre-show at 7:15 and savories and sweets will be served post show courtesy of AGAVA Restaurant.

COMMONLY ASKED QUESTION: Will men like this show? YES! Bring your husband, your brother, your best friend! This show is a show for women. . . AND the men who love them!



Tip of the hat to all of our hard working students who did such a fabulous job in their student showcases. Great job everyone. You made us proud!
