She Kills Monsters

7pm on November 18 and 19, 2022
WCS Performing Arts Center

In a new edition created especially for high school performing groups, She Kills Monsters tells the story of high schooler Agnes Evans as she deals with the death of her younger sister, Tilly. When Agnes stumbles upon Tilly’s Dungeons & Dragons notebook, she finds herself catapulted into a journey of discovery and action-packed adventure in the imaginary world that was her sister’s refuge. In this high-octane dramatic comedy laden with homicidal fairies, nasty ogres, and ’90s pop culture, acclaimed playwright Qui Nguyen offers a heart-pounding homage to the geek and warrior within us all.

12 Angry Jurors

7PM January 20, and 21, 2023
Jonathan Gillespie Studio Theatre

12 Angry Jurors is a play that contemplates the huge responsibility of 12 ordinary people as they consider the guilt or innocence of a young man accused of murder. The 12 jurors bring their own histories, prejudices, and biases to the jury room as they work through this life or death decision. Despite being originally written for men only–12 Angry Men was written in a time before women could serve on juries– this play illuminates issues that still trouble our society in a very human way. Tempers get shorter as the arguments get hotter, but a decision must be made, as a man’s life hangs in the balance.

Newsies Jr.

Disney’s Newsies JR. is a 60-minute version of the 2012 Broadway musical, based on the 1992 film. Inspired by the rousing true story of newsboys in turn-of-the-century New York City, Newsies JR. features a Tony Award-winning score by Alan Menken and Jack Feldman and a book by Tony Award winner Harvey Fierstein.

When powerful newspaper publishers raise prices at the newsboys’ expense, the charismatic Jack Kelly rallies newsies from across the city to strike against the unfair conditions. Together, the newsies learn that their voices are stronger together and create a movement to fight for what’s right–once and for all.
