DIRECTOR DEADLINE: She Kills Monsters
May 6, 2021
July 23, 24, 30, & 31 at 7pm

This is a virtual theatre event. All rehearsals are being held via Zoom. Performances will be recorded via Zoom and OBS and then edited to add dramatic effect. All performances shown will be pre-recorded to avoid technical distractions for patrons.
SHE KILLS MONSTERS tells the story of Agnes Evans after the death of her teenage sister, Tilly. When Agnes finds Tilly’s Dungeons & Dragons notebook, she stumbles into a journey of discovery and adventure in the imaginary world that was Tilly’s refuge. In this dynamic 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.
This play contains mild adult themes.

Recently CSJ Youth Theater did a virtual table read of GOOSE-NAPPED. Based on the positive feedback received, we are going to do another virtual activity but this will be just a little closer to an actual performance. CSJ Youth Theater is doing a virtual performance of two scripts called ONCE UPON A ZOOM and ALICE IN CYBERLAND.
Although this is technically a performance, actors will not be required to memorize lines (although you are welcome to do so). All actors will perform from their home via a Zoom call.
If you are interested, just fill out the form in the link above and hit submit by 6:00pm on Friday, May 14.
There will be a couple of rehearsals for each script and a virtual performance on Friday June 4 at 7:00 pm, which you can invite your friends and family to watch. There will be no charge to watch on Zoom.
Center Stage Jackson is seeking a director for our next live, in-person production, STEEL MAGNOLIAS!
If you are interested in directing, please contact Katie Meyers at email@example.com by May 20, 2021 for more information and/or to schedule an interview. Directors interviews will be held via Zoom May 22-28, 2021.
In Steel Magnolias, the action is set in Truvy’s beauty salon in Chinquapin, Louisiana, where all the ladies who are “anybody” come to have their hair done. Helped by her eager new assistant, Annelle (who is not sure whether or not she is still married), the outspoken, wise-cracking Truvy dispenses shampoos and free advice to the town’s rich curmudgeon, Ouiser, (“I’m not crazy, I’ve just been in a bad mood for forty years”); an eccentric millionaire, Miss Clairee; and the local social leader, M’Lynn, whose daughter, Shelby (the prettiest girl in town), is about to marry. Filled with hilarious repartee and not a few acerbic but humorously revealing verbal collisions, the play moves toward tragedy when, in the second act, the spunky Shelby (who is a diabetic) risks pregnancy and possibly her life. The sudden realization of their mortality affects the women, but also draws on the underlying strength—and love—which give the play, and its characters, the special quality to make them truly touching, funny and marvelously amiable company in good times and bad.
