Spring Semester 2016

She Kills Monsters - February 25-27, 201 at 7:00 p.m. – Q. M. Martin Auditorium

Panola Collge will boldly go where a generation of dungeon masters has gone before, to tell the story of a young woman who, in losing herself in a game, reclaims a long-gone loved one.  Qui Nguyen’s agreeable comedy details the quest of Agnes Evans, a high school teacher unable to quell her grief over her younger sister Tilly, who died at 15 in a car crash in which their parents were also killed. Finding the playbook Tilly created for her deep involvement in Dungeons & Dragons, the role-playing game, Agnes persuades a sweaty, rumpled student, to preside as dungeon master and allow Agnes belatedly to enter Tilly’s fantasy world. This production will also be Panola’s TCCSTA’s Play Festival  entry in early March.  Tickets are $10.00 for the General Public and free for Panola Family and Students.  To make reservations, please call 903.693.2064 or email tickets@panola.edu.  No children under ten will be admitted.
