Share Stories About Their Road to Smith
Ask an Ada Comstock Scholar
about her time before Smith and you’re bound to get
some amazing answers.
Telephone psychic. Barista.
Personal assistant to a crazy millionaire. Chef. Fishmonger.
Those are just a fraction of
the perspectives Adas bring with them to Smith, and a few
of the experiences presenters will talk about during the
second annual Ada Monologues, on Saturday, April 13, and
Friday, April 19, in which students of nontraditional age
write and tell about their roads to Smith.
This year’s Ada Monologues will include
some back-by-request pieces from last year’s event, as well as new additions
to the program. Both performances will begin at 7 p.m. in Graham Hall, Hillyer.
Some of their stories are intense
and difficult, others humorous and triumphant. Whatever their
stories, every Ada arrives at Smith wiser for her experience.
Tickets to the Ada Monologues—$2
for Smith students (with ID), $5 general admission—are
available for purchase at the Campus Center on Friday, April
12, and Thursday, April 18, and at the door before both shows
(cash only). Ticket proceeds will benefit the Ada Comstock
