Get ready for some high-octane fun, as Mira Costa High School's Drama/Tech team presents the acclaimed dramatic comedy "She Kills Monsters."

"She Kills Monsters" tells the story of high school student 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. Filled with homicidal fairies, nasty ogres, and ‘90s pop culture, the play honors the "geek warrior" within as seen through Dungeons & Dragons mythology. 

The play will run from November 8-16 in the Mira Costa High School New Theater. Performance times are as follows:

Friday, November 8 at 7:30 p.m.
Saturday, November 9 at 7:30 p.m.
Wednesday, November 13 at 4 p.m.*
Thursday, November 14 at 6:30 p.m.
Friday, November 15 at 7:30 p.m.
Saturday, November 16 at 7:30 p.m.
