During the academic year, students in our Conservatory and Ensemble programs perform full-scale musicals – typically in our intimate, 142-seat Christopher and Dana Reeve Studio Theatre or the larger Lerner Family Theatre. These programs require an intensive commitment spanning one semester to two years and require an audition.

Join us for an all-female version of this classic story of a teen gang in rural Oklahoma where the Greasers are perpetually at odds with the Socials, a rival group. When Greasers Ponyboy and Johnny get into a brawl that ends in the death of a Social member, they are forced to go into hiding. Soon Ponyboy and Johnny, along with the rest of their Greaser family, must contend with the consequences of their violent lives. While some Greasers try to achieve redemption, others meet tragic ends.

She Kills Monsters
By Qui Nguyen

Friday, December 18 at 9:00 p.m.

Saturday, December 19 at 9:00 p.m.

She Kills Monsters tells the story of Agnes Evans as she leaves her childhood home in Ohio following the death of her teenage sister, Tilly. When Agnes finds Tilly’s Dungeons & Dragons notebook, however, she finds herself catapulted into a journey of discovery and action-packed adventure in the imaginary world that was her sister’s refuge. In this high-octane dramatic comedy laden with homicidal fairies, nasty ogres, and ’90s pop culture, acclaimed playwright Qui Nguyen offers a heart-pounding homage to the geek and warrior within us all.

The Wolves
By Sarah DeLappe

Sunday, December 20 at 5:00 p.m.

Left quad. Right quad. Lunge. A girls indoor soccer team warms up. From the safety of their suburban stretch circle, the team navigates big questions and wages tiny battles with all the vim and vigor of a pack of adolescent warriors. A portrait of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness for nine American girls who just want to score some goals. The Wolves was the 2015 winner for the Relentless Play Award for Playwrighting and a finalist for the 2017 Pulitzer Prize for Drama!
