Weed / COS – Looking for a fun night of Theatre or a reason to dress up after Halloween. Join us for the COS Fall Production opening next week! Our Performing Arts Department is thrilled to present “She Kills Monsters.” Performances are scheduled for Friday and Saturday evenings, November 3, 4, 10, 11, 17, and 18 at 7 p.m. and Sunday afternoons, November 5 and 12 at 3 p.m. in the Weed Campus Kenneth W. Ford Theater.
Identity, grief, and triumph intersect in this zany, fantastical play by Qui Nyugen. “She Kills Monsters” is a story about kids who make up stories; stories in which girls wield swords, and nerds rule the earth.
A comedic romp into the world of fantasy role-playing games, “She Kills Monsters” follows the journey of Agnes Evans as she leaves her childhood home in Ohio following the death of her teenage sister, Tilly. When Agnes finds Tilly’s Dungeons & Dragons notebook, she stumbles into a journey of discovery and action-packed adventure in the imaginary world that was Tilly’s refuge. In this high-octane dramatic comedy laden with homicidal fairies, nasty goblins, and 90s pop culture, acclaimed young playwright Qui Nguyen offers a heart-pounding homage to the geek and warrior within us all.
There was such a great response to auditions, the show was cast TWICE…so there will be two full casts sharing the stage during this run. The production will feature current and former COS students, as well as students from several local high schools that are cast, crew, and monsters in this fun production. Please be aware the show contains adult themes and violence and is not necessarily appropriate for younger patrons. Suggested Donation: $10
