Girl Scouts Attend Free: From the Mouths of Monsters


Calendar > Scout Events & Opportunities > In Partnership with Scouting Events & Activities in NOVA


A Kennedy Center Production is coming to Herndon, VA! The Kennedy Center is performing its world premiere of From the Mouths of Monsters at Herndon High School March 17-19, 2017! Most appropriate for students in grades 7-12, this fiercely relevant play examines the monstrous power of words…and those who wield them. In celebration of Girl Scout’s Birthday, Herndon High School’s Drama Boosters would like to offer Girl Scouts free admission! Girl Scouts may come as individuals or with their troop; those interested in the free admission should call Mrs. Maxwell, of HHS Drama Boosters, at (703) 742-9395.

Teenager Michelle struggles to find the confidence to speak. A mysterious doctor gives her a mask to help, but the gift possesses supernatural powers that cause her to give words amazing power — and also the potential to cause terrible harm. Will Michelle be able to master the monster within?

This highly theatrical work is inspired by Mary Shelley’s enduring classic Frankenstein, which celebrates 200 years in 2018. For the book’s upcoming special anniversary, award-winning playwright and BreakBeat poet Idris Goodwin, along with acclaimed director Douglas Irvine (the Kennedy Center’s presentations of Jason and the Argonauts and The Adventures of Robin Hood), have created a fiercely relevant two-actor play that examines the monstrous power of words… and those who wield them.

Performance dates include:

March 17, 2017, 7:30 pm
March 18, 2017, 2 & 7:30 pm
March 19, 2017, 2 pm

Student tickets are only $5, adults are $15, and can be purchased here. Herndon High School Auditorium is located at 700 Bennett St., Herndon, VA 20170 (enter through door 6).
