Slaying monsters, kissing girls, and playing dungeons and dragons were only part of this year’s fall play, She Kills Monsters performed by the theatre department.. Every year, hours of rehearsal go into the production of the fall play, but this year the participants had an extra motivation to strive for excellence. For the first time since the production of Antigone, the fall play was attended by judges for the state conference.

“There is a chance that in January we will get to perform it again for all of Missouri’s thespian troupe. It’s always true that teach kids on all the crews work harder than the actors do in most cases, but this year that was especially true. Everyone was at a level of 100% dedication,” Cullen Curth (12) said.

Everyone in the crowd sees and experiences the work of all the crew members, but oftentimes, fail to consider the “behind the scenes” aspects. With the motivation of possibly being able to perform in front of other troupes at the state conference, the work of these tech members did not go unnoticed by the actors.

“All of the technical aspects were really above and beyond in this show and that helped take this production to the next level,” Michaela Jackson (12) said.

The conference is hosted annually in either Kansas City or Saint Louis, this year being in St. Louis. The Lindbergh theatre department always goes to the state conference regardless of whether or not they are performing so that they can support the thespians from other schools.

“To get picked would mean a lot of work this winter leading up to it because we would be practicing the play on top of musical rehearsals that are already planned. It would totally pay off, though, because there is no better audience than all of your fellow thespians,” Curth said.
