BRAVO Wrap-Up of all WINNERS!



Then at the Diversionary Theatre, we have now  ....
Three best friends from Washington got together and decided to make a musical. The rest is history – or at least it will be when the cast of LIZARD BOY makes their San Diego debut at Diversionary Theatre this September. Kirsten deLohr Helland, Justin Huertas and William A. Williams, make up the entire cast and band of LIZARD BOY, a fantastical comic-book rock concert-slash-theatrical explosion. Director Brandon Ivie Brandon Lvie, originally staged the show at Seattle Repertory, and will return to stage it fresh for Diversionary.
LIZARD BOY follows an unlikely hero in Trevor (Huertas), who hasn’t left his house in a year. After being disfigured in a freak accident as a child (A playground, kids, dragon blood… it was messy) he’s too uncomfortable with the way he looks to go out in public. But the night we meet Trevor he is motivated to take a chance: using Grindr as a lifeline he ends up meeting a cute stranger named Cary (William A. Williams) who does his best to get the shy guy to open up.  Weird, doesn’t begin to describe the kind of night Trevor embarks upon - where he must confront a stranger from his dreams (Siren, played by Kirsten deLohr Helland), and is challenged to transform from Freak to Hero. The show illuminates a fantastical comic book world where individuality is celebrated to the tune of a wild assortment of instruments from kazoos to cellos, and guitars to ukuleles.

LIZARD BOY plays September 29th – October 30th on the Diversionary Theatre Mainstage.  Performances run Thursdays at 7pm, Fridays and Saturdays at 8pm, and Sundays at 2pm.   More information is available at
