‘Begets’ opens April 9 in Stone Theatre

Directed by the director of Tech’s School of the Performing Arts, Mark Guinn, the show runs April 9-13, 7:30 p.m. and April 14 at 2:00 p.m.

Arthur W. Stone Theatre will become the hall of an all-American high school overrun with shogun bullies in this action-packed samurai adventure. Emi Edwards, played by junior Theatre major Madelynn Deason, is a geeky girl who has found the courage to fight the shoguns and defend geek-kind.

However, in her journey to right wrongs, will her own cravings for popularity and power corrupt her quest to save the school? Will she able to establish a new world order? Or will violence just beget more violence.
