DUAL AUDITIONS FOR THE MUSICAL "VIOLET"VIOLET and "SHE KILLS MONSTERS"
Tuesday, September 4, 2018 and
Wednesday, September 5, 2018


VIOLET
Music by Jeanine Tesori and libretto by Brian Crawley
Based on the short story "The Ugliest Pilgrim" by Doris Betts
Directed by Holly Holsinger 
PERFORMANCE DATES: November 8-18, 2018 (Thurs-Sun) at the Helen Rosenfeld Lewis Bialosky Lab Theatre (Playhouse Square)

As a girl, Violet was struck by a wayward axe blade when her father was chopping wood, leaving her with a visible scar across her face. With enough money finally saved she's traveling across the Deep South in 1964 towards a miracle – the healing touch of a TV evangelist who will make her beautiful. Although she may not succeed in having the scar on her face healed, Violet is able to repair those scars that are lying deeper than her skin. On the way, she meets a young, African-American soldier whose love for her reaches far past her physical "imperfections."

 
SHE KILLS MONSTERSShe Kills Monsters
FALL WORKSHOP PRODUCTION!
Written by Qui Nguyen
Directed by Lara Mielcarek
PERFORMANCE DATES: October 5 and 6, 2018 in the Black Box Theatre (MB 521)

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.
