MACON – Mercer Theatre will present Qui Nguyen's “She Kills Monsters” at Tattnall Square Center for the Arts Nov. 10-13 and Nov. 17-20. The central Georgia premiere is a comedic romp into the world of fantasy role-playing games.

General admission tickets are $15, and $10 with a Mercer I.D. Advance purchase is recommended, but tickets will also be available at the door. To purchase tickets, visit tickets.mercer.edu.

In “She Kills Monsters,” Average Agnes is finally leaving her childhood home following the death of her totally weird sister, Tilly. When she stumbles upon Tilly's Dungeons and Dragons notebook, however, Agnes embarks on an action-packed adventure to discover more about her sister than she previously cared to know. A high-octane comedy fraught with hostile fairies, randy ogres and '90s pop culture, “She Kills Monsters” is a heart-pounding homage to the geek within us all.

Mercer Theatre Director Scot Mann said, “This show is a wild ride featuring a young woman's self-discovery through the lens of Dungeons and Dragons. Sword fights, magic, bawdy humor and dialogue, and, of course, monsters.”

The show is recommended for ages 18 and up.

With this production, Mercer Theatre welcomes new faculty member Frani Rollins. Rollins takes over as lighting and scenic director after the retirement of professor Marian Zielinski in February.

Rollins earned her M.F.A. in theatre design and technology from the University of Oregon and her B.A. in theatre from Wesleyan University in Middletown, Connecticut. Her current research interests focus on new technologies in theatrical design and the scholarship of learning and teaching theatre in higher education. She has designed scenery, lighting, projections and props for shows including the musical “Anything Goes” and Shakespeare's “Much Ado About Nothing” at Georgia College.

Performance times for “She Kills Monsters” include Nov. 10-12 and Nov. 17-19 at 7:30 p.m. A Sunday matinee at 2:30 p.m. will be available Nov. 13 and Nov. 20.

Tattnall Square Center for the Arts is located at 1096 College St. in Macon.
