Coming up next...
This weekend, our next virtual production, dramatic comedy She Kills Monsters: Virtual Realms! She Kills Monsters tells the story of Agnes Evans after the death of her younger teenage sister, Tilly. When Agnes finds Tilly’s Dungeons & Dragons notebook, she stumbles into the imaginary world that was Tilly’s refuge. Coming to the realization that she never really knew her sister, Agnes decides to play out Tilly’s homespun game. Along the way Agnes is forced to fight characters that give her clues as well as questions about her little sister’s true identity, all while juggling the expectations of her own reality.
This play contains mild adult themes of grief, loss, sexuality, gender identity, and bullying, with some instances of strong language. The purpose of these themes is to address the complex issues of identity, inclusion, and growth that are at the heart of Qui Nguyen’s script.
Virtual performances are July 23, 24, 30, & 31 at 7:00pm, with Sunday matinees at 3:00pm on July 25 and August 1. Tickets are $12 for an individual streaming pass, or $16 for a household streaming pass for those that want to view on one device together with family or friends.
Our Annual BBQ Cook-Off is BACK in 2021! For $10 you’ll get tickets to sample each competitor’s barbecue, one vote for your favorite, one drink ticket (beer, pop, or water), family-fun entertainment from the band Alibi, and entry into raffles!
Several 2020-21 productions and their directors have been moved to the 2021-22 Season, while others have been postponed, cancelled, or are on hold. We are currently seeking directors for three productions in the 2021-22 Season, with an application deadline of July 16!
This year's Annual Meeting will be held over Zoom once again, Tuesday August 17th at 6:30pm. All are welcome, Zoom link coming soon! The event will include a look back at this very unusual season, announcement of the Board of Directors Election outcome, reports from committee chairs, and a financial report.
There are a lot of tasks that need to be done during the year that keep the organization running but aren’t directly related to putting on a show–and committees are the best place to go to help get that work done! Membership is not required to be on a committee.
