10th Grade Presents Aristophanes' The Birds

Wednesday, February 2011

Thursday & Friday, February 17 & 18 at 7:30 pm In the school auditorium

This play was first produced in ancient Greece in the 5th century BC. The original production featured two Athenians who were fed up with government corruption, high taxes, a litigious society and a protracted war with Sparta (sound familiar?). These fellows hear about a legendary Athenian who has reincarnated as a bird and they go off in search his otherworldly paradise, Cloud Cuckoo Land. Their search results in a hilarious, madcap romp complete with music, dance and many surprises!

Come see the 10th grade production of this Greek classic which has been updated to the present (wherein the word, Twitter, takes on a whole new meaning…).

Recommended for grades 5 and up. Admission is free, but donations will be accepted at the door to support the 10th grade’s Service Learning Trip.
