The award-winning Lewisville High School Theatre Department is proud to present its 2018-19 season featuring a zany family musical, riotous comedies, and intense dramas featuring some of the area’s most talented student performers.

THE ADDAMS FAMILY features an original story, and it’s every father’s nightmare. Wednesday Addams, the ultimate princess of darkness, has grown up and fallen in love with a sweet, smart young man from a respectable family – a man her parents have never met. And if that weren’t upsetting enough, Wednesday confides in her father and begs him not to tell her mother. Now, Gomez Addams must do something he’s never done before – keep a secret from his beloved wife, Morticia. Everything will change for the whole family on the fateful night they host a dinner for Wednesday’s ‘normal’ boyfriend and his parents.


She Kills Monsters

Friday, November 30, 7 p.m.

Saturday, December 1, 2 p.m.

Monday, December 3, 7 p.m.

LHS Stuver Auditorium, 1098 W. Main Street, Lewisville

Tickets:  General Admission, $5.

A comedic romp into the world of fantasy role-playing games, 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 stumbles into a journey of discovery and action-packed adventure in the imaginary world that was Tilly’s refuge. In this high-octane dramatic comedy laden with homicidal fairies, nasty ogres, and 90s pop culture, acclaimed young playwright Qui Nguyen offers a heart-pounding homage to the geek and warrior within us all.


Too Much Memory

Thursday, November 29, 7 p.m.

Saturday, December 1, 7 p.m.

Sunday, December 2, 2 p.m.

Lewisville High School, 1098 W. Main Street, Lewisville

Tickets:  General Admission, $5.

A theatrical explosion of myth and revolution, TOO MUCH MEMORY is a retelling of the classic Greek story of Antigone set firmly in the present. This inventive adaptation straddles a line between the classic Greek tragedy and modern storytelling. Children fight to break away from their parents' shadows; a trophy wife agonizes over her diminishing role in both public and private spheres; and soldiers required to obey their commander-in-chief reject their roles in the battle between order and unrest. A play about collective history, TOO MUCH MEMORY explores what this means as we try to revamp and refocus it.


Secret in the Wings

Thursday, January 31, 7 p.m.

Friday, February 1, 7 p.m.

Saturday, February 2, 7 p.m.

Lewisville High School, 1098 W. Main Street, Lewisville

Tickets:  General Admission, $10. Student Admission, $7.

Mary Zimmerman’s The Secret in the Wings adapts a group of lesser-known fairy tales to create a theatrical work that sets their dark mystery against her signature wit and humor. The framing story concerns a child and the frightening babysitter with whom her parents leave her. As the babysitter reads from a book, the characters in each of the tales materialize, with each tale breaking off just at its bleakest moment before giving way to the next one. The central tale is told without interruption, after which each previous tale is successively resumed, with each looming disaster averted. As in Zimmerman’s other productions, here she uses costumes, props, sets, and lighting to brilliant effect, creating images and feelings that render the fairy tales in all their elemental and enduring power.

Saturday, May 11, 7 p.m.

Lewisville High School, 1098 W. Main Street, Lewisville
