Don't Kill the Messenger
by Stage & Steel Productions

Written and Choreography by Ruth Comley

Directed by Sam Kiser


Story Synopsis:

A visitor from an unfriendly kingdom shows up right before the yearly fall festival. Typically the fall festival is a time for tradition, song, merriment and for the knights of the realm to challenge each other in combat to try to advance their ranking. But this year things may be different... the Princess refuses to stay within the safety of the castle, a stranger with an even stranger request drops in, and some of the knights may not be as knightly as they appear.

Waldron loves Gladstone, Gladstone loves the Princess, but who does the Princess love? Found out! Cheer for your favorite knights, or boo your favorite enemies. King Conrad welcomes all to this Fall Festival, but remember, don't kill the messenger. Wassail! Drink Hail!

What to Expect:

     We do theater a little differently. While most shows you will sit quietly in the audience, and clap at the appropriate times, we encourage the audience to become a part of show. 

     For those adventurous enough to volunteer, you may be given a line to two to speak during the show, you may be asked to stand in as our Man-at-Arms and help to ready our fighters before they battle or you may be chosen to help guide the story and change the outcome based on your collective choices.

     You may, and should, cheer and boo your favorite champions as they fight. Yell out encouragement or jeers (just keep in mind we are a family friendly show, keep it PG please.) 

     There will be sword fighting and hand to hand combat. It will happen mere feet in front of you. Actors may break the fourth wall and interact with you, or the audience as a whole, please play nice and respond back. 

     Stick around after the show to meet the actors, or get a behind the scenes tour. We are a community theater and we love to share.
