Play a part in a live Readers’ Theatre!
For anyone 14 and older!
The Odyssey was part of the oral-telling tradition in ancient Greece. Homer’s stories were first told from memory, only later becoming a part of the written literary canon. Ancient bards would often augment their storytelling with music and props, to help audience members better understand the meaning of complicated plots.
We will be performing one exciting book from Emily Wilson’s brilliant translation of this epic story.
Rehearsal: Wednesday, March 22, from 5 - 8 pm
Performance: Saturday, March 25, from 1 - 3:30 pm
