The Riverland Community College 2020-21 theater season opens Oct. 21 — roll for initiative!

The first play of the season, "She Kills Monsters: Virtual Realms," opens Oct. 21 and will be delivered to audiences entirely online.

The show, written by Qui Nguyen, follows protagonist Agnes Evans through her first action-packed foray into the world of Dungeons and Dragons following the death of her sister, Tilly, an experienced Dungeon Master.

On Feb. 24, the college theater will present "Almost, Maine," a romantic comedy about a quaint little town where over the course of one night, many residents will fall — sometimes quite literally — in and out of love.

That play will be directed by Susan V. Hansen.

The season ends with a pop musical adaptation of William Shakespeare's "As You Like It," postponed from the 2019-20 season. Williams will direct the show, which follows Orlando, Duke Senior, his daughter Rosalind and niece Celia, as they escape to the Forest of Arden and find acceptance. The show features an original folk-pop score by singer-songwriter Shaina Taub.
