Dragons and wizards onstage? Surely, you joust!

Armed with only a role-player's handbook and multi-sided dice, three modern day fantasy geeks are magically transported back in time and forced to save the kingdom of Nerdvana. From the beloved author of past season hit plays, All Greek To Me and Once Upon a Decade, you’ll laugh along with this original fantasy spoof performed by Beck Center's talented youth. Huzzah-Ha-Ha!
"Whether it's a medieval role-playing game or fantasy football, being a geek is not defined by what you love but by how much you love it." remarked Spence. "This comedy celebrates the geek in us all.” Spence has cast a variety of Beck Center students – actors, artists, dancers, and singers – who are currently enrolled in arts education classes. Going Medieval features a talented cast of 27 young actors ages 6 to 12 who have all joined together to present this hilarious spoof under Spence’s creative direction.
