Working with professional directors, designers, and artists, students apply classroom training to the stage, learn rehearsal process and etiquette, and the discipline of performance. A play is a big commitment. Students should attend every rehearsal (conflicts must be listed at time of audition), meet memorization deadlines, and come to rehearsal prepared for the day.
Auditions will be held at ZACH Theatre. Information about auditions will be released soon! Check back often!

High schooler Agnes Evans is reeling from 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.
Please Note rehearsals for this production will take place at the ZACH North Campus located at 12129 Ranch Road N 620 Suite 310.
