See this season’s lineup below.

“She Kills Monsters”

“She Kills Monsters” by Qui Nguyen tells the story of Agnes Evans as she leaves her childhood home 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 fairies, nasty ogres, and ‘90s pop culture, acclaimed playwright and storyteller Nguyen offers a heart-pounding homage to the geek and warrior within us all.

Adapted and directed by Steven Volpe, the award-winning high school theatre students of Arcadia Stage will present this delightful production, on Nov. 14, 15 and 16, 2019.
