07aug11:00 am1:00 pmShe Kills Monsters by Qui Nguyen - Auditions

Event Details

A comedic romp into the world of fantasy role-playing games, with more 90s references than you can shake a D20 at! She Kills Monsters tells the story of high-school teacher Agnes Evans as she deals with the death of her younger and weirder, sister, Tilly. When Agnes stumbles upon Tilly’s Dungeons & Dragons notebook, she decides to try out what kept her sister so occupied and falls into a journey of discovery and action-packed adventure. As she delves deeper into her quest, the fantasy world and reality begin to collide and mix as Agnes searches to connect with Tilly and realises how much of her sister she never knew.
ACTORS WANTED: Show up at 11am ready to read. Director, Dinna Myers.
We are seeking:
AGNES (20s-30s) – The protagonist. A 24 year-old woman, a very average in every way high-school English teacher.
TILLY (Teens-20s) – Agnes’ sixteen year-old sister. About as different to Agnes as possible. A total badass, she’s into magic, dragons and the vanquishing of evil.
CHUCK (Teens-20s) – A nerdy, grungy teen Dungeon Master.
LILITH/LILLY (Teens-20s) – A leather-clad Demon Queen fighter character questioning her sexuality.
KALIOPE/KELLY (Teens-20s) – A Dark Elf rogue character. A supermodel who is incredibly strong.
ORCUS/RONNIE (Teens-20s) – The Demon Overlord of the Underworld. Truly evil, he likes his TV shows. Also plays a high-school student.
VERA (20s-30s) – Agnes’ best friend. Works as a student counsellor at the same high school.
STEVE (Teens-20s) – The Mighty Mage Steve! In real life he is one of Tilly’s classmates. Dies a lot.
MILES (20s-30s) – Agnes’ boyfriend of two years and 18 months. Like Agnes he’s pretty average. He appears in the game as a shapeshifting “gelatenous blob” that Agnes must kill.
EVIL GABBI / EVIL TINA (Teens-20s) – Cheerleader succubi that torment Tilly, in particular about her sexuality, both in the game and when she was alive. They are based on Tilly’s high school bullies.
