Our Next Show

Written in the Stars: Greek Mythology Comes to Life!

Join us this summer for retellings of three different Greek myths!
  • The 12 Labors of Heracles: Meet Heracles, a normal kid with a name fit for the son of Zeus! When a new kid in the neighborhood takes his action figurine, Heracles must complete twelve challenges to get his favorite toy back. Everyday objects and neighborhood pets become monsters of mythic proportions and Heracles learns that, with confidence and imagination, he can rise to become a true hero. This modern take on Heracles is fun for the whole family! No monsters were harmed in the making of this play.
  • Icarus and Daedalus: Master craftsman Daedalus just wants a quiet, ordinary life, while his son Icarus dreams of having adventures like the heroes in his favorite myths. When Daedalus accepts a job to build a Labyrinth - a maze impossible to solve - to trap a monstrous minotaur, he and his son find themselves on a much bigger adventure than they ever expected! Daedalus must use his intelligence and talent to save himself and Icarus. His master escape plan comes with two very serious rules: don’t fly too high, and don’t fly too low.
  • Perseus and Medusa: Perseus is a young prince who has been sent on an impossible quest by an evil king: defeat the snake-haired monster Medusa, who can turn people to stone with a single glance! With help from some mystical creatures and magical items, can Perseus outwit Medusa before she turns him to stone? Find out in this family-friendly production of the ancient Greek myth about the world's first adventure hero. Perseus and Medusa is a special Children's Museum & Theatre Alumni Production, featuring high school and college age actors who acted on our stage between 2008-2015!
Produced with generous support from the Morton-Kelly Charitable Trust.
