Lit Lore: The Oddest Sea - Greek Gods & Giggles

On Stage
April 1 & 2, 2023

Ten years after the fall of Troy, Odysseus has learned the hard way that you really shouldn’t anger Poseidon. Our hero STILL hasn’t made it home from the war a decade later, thanks to getting on the vengeful sea-god’s bad side. And it won’t be happily-ever-after right away once he does get home… because after his long absence, his wife Penelope is being pursued by 108 suitors who think she’s a widow! Join us for this fabulously fun, fast-paced, and family-friendly expedition through a collection of stories from Homer’s Odyssey, retold by Patti Murtha for young audiences. Our student cast brings to life this classic saga of gods and goddesses, a cyclops, a whirlpool, a sea-witch, marvelously mythical monsters, and lots of other legends of literary lore. Set sail with us on this epic adventure!
