One year into college and still grieving over the sudden death of her sister, Margot Cates plans to spend every waking minute of summer vacation honing her skills at World of Warcraft.  But before she can even long on, Margot finds herself unwillingly whisked away to a wilderness camp for online gaming addicts.  Cut off from technology, the campers and counselors wrestle with personal demons both online and off.  A contemporary play built on contemporary concerns, TEN RED KINGS uses music, dance, and live-action avatars to capture the ever-shrinking gap between reality and digital fantasy.

Casting for the following roles:

Margot Cates, female, late teens.  In denial.

Stevie (Stephanie) Gallagher, female, late teens.  Lonely smack-talker.

Rhonda Pierce, female, mid-to-late twenties. It’s her job to be in charge.  Donovan Kuebler, male, late teens, race open.  Big shot.

Keith Moss, male, late teens.  In constant dread.

Paula Gonzales, female, late teens.  Very accepting.

Joey Rucci, male, late teens.  Hungry, and sure of only one thing.  Well, okay. Two.

Nightwatch, female, teens or twenties.  Coolly professional.

Varleigh, male, teens or twenties.  Impetuous. (The name rhymes with Harley)

Courtney Cates, female, late teens or early twenties. Margot’s older sister, now deceased.
