WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Prepare to be transformed. Tony Award-winning Mary Zimmerman's smash hit Metamorphoses is a play of such grace and beauty that the memory of it lingers long after the lights have gone down. Written to be performed in a pool of water, the staging of SPT's Youth Program production makes ingenious use of all theatrical elements to conjure the force of Ovid's myths into gorgeous imagery, provocative moments, and breathtaking storytelling. Experience magic and enchantment, bawdy humor and deep sincerity, told in a provocative mix of both contemporary and classic styles.
"This is an intelligent, imaginative, kind, and creative ensemble," says SPT Education Director, Shana Bestock. "They move with ease and confidence, and I happily step out of their way as they individually and collectively solve problems, make personal acting breakthroughs, triumph over the exhaustions and pressures of school, and achieve moments of great joy and beauty onstage."
