Missouri S&T – News & Events – Missouri S&T Theater Students to Perform “She Kills Monsters”
Tickets are on sale now for Missouri University of Science and Technology’s student production of “She Kills Monsters.”
Performances will be at 7 p.m. on Thursday, October 13; Friday October 14; and Saturday October 15; with a matinee performance at 2 p.m. on Sunday, October 16. All performances will take place at the Leach Theater at Castleman Hall, located on the Missouri S&T campus at the corner of 10th and Main streets in Rolla.
“She Kills Monsters” by acclaimed playwright Qui Nguyen is a high-octane comedy-drama that delves into the world of role-playing fantasy. Loaded with homicidal fairies, evil ogres and 90s pop culture, it offers a poignant tribute to the geek and warrior in everyone.
“We’re excited to put on a Dungeons & Dragons-themed play, it seems pretty appropriate for our campus,” says Taylor Gruenloh, assistant professor of theater at Missouri S&T. “There are elves, demons and gelatinous cubes. Lots of 90s rock music and young ladies kicking some serious ass. It’s a fun ride.
Tickets are $15 for the public and $10 for Missouri S&T faculty, staff, and students with valid S&T ID. The show contains adult content and adult language and is recommended for audiences 13 and older.
Tickets can be purchased at the Leach Theater box office, located inside the main entrance to Castleman Hall, facing 10th Street. The ticket office is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday to Friday.
