When the Romans wrote their stories, they used all of the characters and many of the stories from Greek mythology, but they changed the names of the gods. We'll be working from the Roman versions in this class, by Jove! Magical transformations abound in these ancient stories, brought to life afresh by Seattle playwright Jennifer Dice ("Merry Maids of Nottingham," "Odysseus, or One Thing After Another"). Wonderful stories and great roles for young actors. Everything changes, nothing stays the same. Final performance 12 noon August 3.
