Shaking the tree's high school program is a hands on creative experience for lovers of storytelling and the stage. Students come up with the design concepts, and star in the play, learning all aspects of theatre from technical skills to stagecraft. In each session we work on an exciting play by a brilliant author, so that students get to interact with quality material.
A comedic romp into the world of fantasy role-playing games, She Kills Monsters tells the story of Agnes Evans as she leaves her childhood home in Ohio following the death of her teenage sister, Tilly. When Agnes finds Tilly’s Dungeons & Dragons notebook, however, she stumbles into a journey of discovery and action-packed adventure in the imaginary world that was Tilly’s refuge. In this high-octane 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.
