This year’s play is The Odyssey, by Tom Smith.
“This fast-paced and funny adaptation brings Homer’s original story to life for young audiences. Odysseus and his crewman Pete must overcome many perils on their long voyage home from Troy, including an awkward teenage Cyclops named Polly, some Sirens crooning elevator music, and various other gods and monsters. Along the way, they both learn some hard lessons in trust, humility, and the power of brains over brawn.”
Performances are scheduled for Saturdays at 10:30 a.m. on July 16, 23, 30.
The play is produced by special arrangement with Playscripts, Inc.
