Govenaires 2018 ...

A Wo/Man's World

The Govenaires are proud to present their 2018 program, A Wo/Man’s World. The show explores the challenges and triumphs of women as they navigate through a traditionally “Man’s World.”

A Wo/Man’s World is a place where strength is celebrated … where glass ceilings are meant to be shattered.

We conclude with a call to everyone to unite in support of each other – regardless of gender – for the betterment of our world.

Follow us this summer as the Govenaires perform A Wo/Man’s World.

“I am not lucky. You know what I am? I am smart, I am talented, I take advantage of the opportunities that come my way and I work really, really hard. Don’t call me lucky. Call me a badass.” – Shonda Rhimes
