SUPERIOR — A play that dares to ask questions Greek mythology buffs may never have considered takes center stage in the Superior High School Performing Arts Center Dec. 2-4.
Dueling narrators take on the task of covering all of Greek mythology in “The Greek Mythology Olympiaganza” by Don Zolidis. They navigate through the pantheon of tales, finding comedy gold as well as asking questions:
Were Jason and the Argonauts the original super friends or just a band of pirates?
What was the relationship between Hercules and his dad, Zeus, really like?
What is the hidden meaning behind Daedalus’ wax wings?
Where is the island of lonely single women?
Audience members can expect to join in the fun during the “Destroy All Monsters” game show. Hint: Participants should brush up on their chimera sounds. Add in a lightning round of myths that get stopped short every time they become inappropriate, bedtime stories that may or may not have footings in mythology and a cautionary tale about angering a witch.
The 90-minute, PG comedy includes appearances by the big names in Greek mythology, from Achilles and Apollo to Athena and Bob.
More than 30 students are involved in the cast and crew for the production, directed by Amber Gilbert.
Performances take place at 7 p.m. Dec. 2-3 and 2 p.m. Dec. 4 at Superior High School. Tickets are $8 for adults, $5 for students. Advance tickets can be
