Two battling narrators attempt to cover the entirety of Greek mythology using audience participation and general theatrical insanity. Famous myths such as Pandora’s Box and Hercules: Intern God jostle for space with obscure, weird myths such as the myth of Linus and the legend of the Argus. Culminating in a bizarre, musical dance-influenced version of The Iliad complete with a full-scale battle of little green army men, this play is wild, silly, and a complete blast for audiences of all ages.

Great news! CCPA has raised $8,760 of our 2017 fund drive goal of $10,000. If you helped with that, we are so grateful for your support. Perhaps you are considering end of year donations? We’d love to be included in your giving choices to help us get to $10,000. Oh yes – you know that wonderful smell of freshly popped popcorn that greets you when you come to a production at the Fox Playhouse? Our ancient and historic (!) popcorn machine in the Fox concession area is worn out. We would like to use $500 of additional donations from this appeal to purchase a new one. (Note: depending on the amount raised, we may purchase a different popper than the one pictured).
