Ominous ogres, bloodthirsty fairies, Dungeons & Dragons, and a whole bunch of really cool stage combat filled the Herndon High stage this past weekend as students presented "She Kills Monsters: Young Adventurers Edition" by Qui Nguyen. The contemporary dramatic comedy centers around Agnes Evans, a high schooler who is longing to learn more about her recently-deceased sister, Tilly. Soon after discovering Tilly’s Dungeons and Dragons notebook, Agnes finds herself propelled into a fantastical adventure, and she learns more about Tilly than she ever could have imagined. Directed by Raphael Schklowsky, the show features humor, fun 90s references, amazing tech, and fight choreography by Casey Kaleba, who recently served as the audition choreographer for Marvel Universe Live. Theatre fans have one more weekend left to join the adventure. Tickets: https://herndondrama.org/
