Ancient Greek culture has shaped and influenced the Western world's ideas about government, literature, and art. Even our notion of how stories are told and the prototype of the "heroic journey" come from Greek mythology. One of the most iconic of all the Greek heroic myths is the story of Theseus, defeater of the Minotaur and champion of Athens. Runaway Puppet Theater retells this classic tale in their production "The Myth-Adventures of Theseus."
This isn't exactly the story as told by Homer or the way you would read it from Ovid. Runaway Puppet Theater draws upon the classic myth with the fantastic characters and surprising situations, but with the Runaway Puppet Theater twist to make the myth more accessible to modern audiences.
Theseus undertakes his heroic quest to defeat miscreants and monsters on his way to becoming King of Athens! Presented in the centuries old art of shadow puppetry, The Myth-Adventures of Theseus will engage, enthrall and entertain audiences young and old alike!
The Myth-Adventures of Theseus is a 45 minute shadow puppet production for all ages.
