She Kills Monsters with San Leandro High School
We are deep into choreography for the monster(s) of a show - She Kills Monsters!
This challenging show features tons of fighting in the most ridiculous of ways! Our team of heroes fights fairies, demons, gelatinous cubes, and even a 5 headed dragon! This play is a particular favorite of mine - and all nerdy fight people really. The playwright does an amazing job of blending badass fighting and touching narrative. The high school team we have at San Leandro is training hard to bring these monsters to life and I must say they are doing a FANTASTIC job! I cannot wait to see this play continue to unfold. We have master puppet maker Jesse Vail working to help bring these creatures to life. This show is epic on an scale of epic!
About She Kills Monsters:
A comedic romp into the world of fantasy role-playing games, She Kills Monsters tells the story 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, however, 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 ogres, and 90s pop culture, acclaimed young playwright Qui Nguyen offers a heart-pounding homage to the geek and warrior within us all.
