Adapted from Ovid's poems of classic Greek myths, Metamorphoses tells the stories of a rich and powerful king's search for endless gold, of two lovers who are transformed into seabirds, of a man consumed by hunger, of a princess who literally dissolves into tears as well as many other stories.
The play, as created by the eminent Chicago playwright Mary Zimmerman, is staged as a series of vignettes that relate thematic tales of the Greek Gods and their human interlopers. Come see the 10th grade students perform this latest adaptation as part of the excellent drama program at Chicago Waldorf School.
Admission is free, although donations will be gratefully accepted at the door to help support the 10th grade's Service Learning trip to New Orleans to help rebuild the homes of Katrina survivors with the St. Bernard Project.
