Auditions for SHE KILLS MONSTERS at Childsplay's YETi announced for March 26

YETi Announces Auditions for She Kills Monsters (Ages 13-18)

Director: Dale Nakagawa
Assistant Director: Madelyn Myres
Stage Manager: Alexis Nomorosa
Assistant Stage Manager: Zoe Garner

She Kills Monsters: Young Adventurer's Edition 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.

Character Breakdown:

NARRATOR - A mysterious voice (think Galadriel at the beginning of Fellowship of the Ring). May also double as Farrah the Faerie. 

- Agnes’s younger sister, killed in an accident. Her D&D notebook gives a glimpse into her life, both real and imaginary. In that world, she is Tillius the Paladin. 

AGNES EVANS - Tilly’s older sister, a senior in high school and a cheerleader. She is average. Agnes embarks on a quest to
 learn more about her sister by exploring the world of her D&D roleplaying game. 

CHUCK - A Dungeon Master who used to play with Tilly. He has an awkward, self-deprecating sense of humor. 

MILES - Agnes’s boyfriend.  A football player. 

LILITH - Lilith is a Demon Queen. Leather-clad with horns, she’s the muscle of the group. In real life, she’s a bit dorky.
 She was close with Tilly. 

- Kaliope is a white-haired Dark Elf. Agile, athletic, and a bit magical. She’s a tracker. In real life she’s Kelly, a normal high schooler with cerebal palsy. 

- Orcus is a demon overlord of the underworld. In real life, Ronnie is Kelly’s brother. 

STEVE - Dungeons & Dragons character, super nerdy spell caster, several death scenes involved as a running gag in the play 


FARRAH – A forest faeri with an evil and violent side. May also double as the Narrator. 

EVIL GABBI & EVIL TINA- Two succubi who are evil demons from the demon world. In real life, they’re cheerleaders who used to
 bully Tilly.
