NEO Theatre Experience to Present “She Kills Monsters” March 7-10

MIAMI — The Northeastern Oklahoma A&M College Theatre Experience will present “She Kills Monsters” in the Fine Arts Auditorium March 7-10.

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 D&D notebook, she stumbles into a journey of discovery and action-packed adventure. This high-octane dramatic comedy laden with fairies, nasty ogres, and ’90s pop culture offers a heart-pounding homage to the geek and warrior within us all.

“‘She Kills Monsters’ is the funniest script I’ve ever read or seen,” said NEO acting artistic director Aaron Smith. “It’s hilarious from beginning to end, even though the overall message is a serious one of inclusion and acceptance.

“Phillip Shamblin’s vision for this play is unique and engaging. He reveals how talented our NEO and area high school students are.”
