After a fatal accident, Agnes comes to the uncomfortable realization that she knew nothing about her nerdy little sister, Tilly. To fix this, she recruits Tilly's friend Chuck to help her play through a Dungeons & Dragons module that Tilly had created. Within the game, Agnes and Tilly go on a quest together through a world full of magic and monsters, giving Agnes a chance to learn about her sister’s life and to finally be able to say goodbye. She Kills Monsters offers a heart-pounding homage to the geek and warrior within us all.

Note: Ages listed are general guidelines for the characters' appearance, not a requirement for the actor's actual age.
Actors must be available for all performances (May 31, June 1, 2, 7, 8, 9, 14, 15, 16), as well as tech weekend and the full dress rehearsals (May 26 and 27 during the day, May 28 and 29 in the evenings). Other mandatory dates include the first read-through and the poster run (to be scheduled).
We recommend that you prepare a monologue from a modern production of your choice (comedic or dramatic is great). Monologues will be available for those who do not wish to prepare something. You may be asked to present your monologue in a different style and/or do a cold reading from the script with a partner.
