About This Show

Share an amazing voyage complete with magic, monsters and feats of great bravery, as Lookingglass Theatre’s Youth Ensemble brings to vibrant life The Odyssey, Homer’s epic tale of Odysseus’ fantastical ten-year journey. Odysseus and his stalwart crew battle the Cyclops, outwit the bewitching Sirens and brave the wrath of Poseidon so that they may, at last, return home to their loved ones. Employing elements of circus, puppetry and tumbling, The Odyssey is sure to hold even the youngest theatergoers spellbound, ready by the final curtain for adventures of their own.

Adapted by Mary Zimmerman.

The Odyssey is recommended for ages 7 and up.
