From Mio Magee ’18:
Unleash the geek and warrior within you… Audition for She Kills Monsters! She Kills Monsters is a one-act comedic romp about a considerably average young woman who finds a Dungeons and Dragons game module her deceased teenaged sister had left for her. She battles in the fantasy world alongside her sister’s D&D character, combatting demons, homicidal faeries and three-headed dragons. Hilarity and epic swordfighting ensue.

An invitation from Nora Canby ’17:
For years, Chairman Mao Zedong was able to balance it all: being an awesome dictator, pulling funny pranks, being a “silly” dad. But now, with Sarah Silverman maybe visiting the palace next weekend, Mao must swallow his pride and find a governess to help wrangle his six healthy teenagers. He hires Magnolia, an American tourist, but she turns out to be crazy and in love with him! Meanwhile, the teenagers face problems ranging from environmental activism to being a goth.

An invitation from Josh Davidoff ’18:
Could you tell your life story in the space of a moment; the length of a sonnet? Come try out for Sonnets for an Old Century by Jose Rivera, a beautiful play that we are adapting to take place in and around Westco, as well as including original student material.
