30 REASONS NOT TO BE IN A PLAY

By Alan Haehnel

The Wellington School, 3650 Reed Road 

Stage kisses, pinkeye, inciting World War III -- these are only a few of the many things that can go wrong during the production of a play. From the author of 15 Reasons Not To Be in a Play comes a full evening of the horrors and hardships that befall those who feel the call of the stage. In a series of hilarious examples, this play proves that drama can be a very dangerous thing and it must be avoided at all costs. (Playscripts)

SHE KILLS MONSTERS: Young Adventurers Edition

By Qui Nguyen

April 7-9, 2022, at 7 p.m.

The Wellington School, 3650 Reed Road 

She Kills Monsters tells the story of high schooler Agnes Evans as she deals with the death of her younger sister, Tilly. When Agnes stumbles upon Tilly’s Dungeons & Dragons notebook, she finds herself catapulted into a journey of discovery and action-packed adventure in the imaginary world that was her sister’s refuge. In this high-octane dramatic comedy laden with homicidal fairies, nasty ogres, and ’90s pop culture, acclaimed playwright Qui Nguyen offers a heart-pounding homage to the geek and warrior within us all. (Concord Theatricals)

Runtime: 90 Minutes (no intermission)
