Greek mythology comes alive in 'Myth Adventures'
Stories of Greek mythology come alive in the Theatre Factory KidWorks' production of “Myth Adventures: Five Greek Classics,” which opens Aug. 3 at the Trafford community theater. Robert MacIntyre of Irwin directs the comedy that revisits the adventures of King Midas, Athena, Narcissus and more.
“I think children and young adults are going to be drawn to this show because it doesn't talk down to them,” MacIntyre says. “It's a very intelligent show and has its moments of seriousness, but that's not to say children won't have fun, too. There are definitely fun moments and laughs along the way, as well as moments that I'm sure will scare them.”
The show focuses on five different tales about the gods, heroes and monsters of the ancient Greeks: “King Midas,” “Orpheus and Eurydice,” “Echo and Narcissus,” “Daedelus and Icarus” and “Theseus and the Minotaur.”
“Myth Adventures” features Steven Begg of Level Green as Dionysus, who narrates the journey, and he also portrays Narcissus and Theseus. Others in the cast include David Fraley of Wexford as Zeus and King Minos, Cameron Swartz of Delmont as Orpheus and Icarus, Doug Peters of Harrison City as Daedalus and King Midas, and Claudia Shafer of North Huntingdon as Clotho. Crystal Bodnar of Manor is stage manager and Amanda Vines of Paintertown is assistant stage manager.
