Village Theatre’s KIDSTAGE Company Originals has written and produced its seventh musical in Issaquah.

This new work, “The Last Shot,” will have only one reading at 7:30 p.m. Monday at the Francis J. Gaudette Theatre, 303 Front St. N.

Set in present-day Western Washington, “The Last Shot” explores how the healing power of art can help people overcome fears and find strength and peace, while telling the story of a high school senior/aspiring filmmaker who takes a cast of fellow students to shoot a movie over Memorial Day weekend.

When the filmmaker’s best friend screws up, the group has to relocate to an old, abandoned and possibly haunted hotel. The students are forced to confront their worst fears about the future, while still trying to complete the film.

Created by teens, for teens, “The Last Shot” strives to depict the teen experience honestly and authentically. “The Last Shot,” features four writers and 14 actors, ages 14-20, from Issaquah, Sammamish, Bellevue, Mercer Island, Renton, Black Diamond, Seattle, Snoqualmie and Woodinville.

Tickets are $10 and are available by calling the box office at 392-2202 or online.
