Cannon Theater Company’s filmed productions of “She Kills Monsters” and “Club Mojito” stream this week Thursday, Friday, and Saturday at 8:00pm! Go to to pick a night and get the streaming link. Per copyright guidelines, the streams will only be available from 8:00-11:00pm each night. “She Kills Monsters” is the story of Agnes, a high school cheerleader who finds her younger sister Tilly’s Dungeons & Dragons notebook a year after Tilly’s death, leading Agnes into a fast-moving adventure that is both funny and moving. Scenes take place at Agnes’s high school, in the imaginary lands of the D&D world, and in online Discord conversations. In “Club Mojito”, eight friends about to graduate from college gather on the roof of their apartment building to celebrate one last night before the next chapter of life begins. Can their friendships survive a fateful visit from the pizza guy and the revelations that follow?
