With a cast of colorful characters and deft sleight-of-hand, master puppeteer Patrick Wadden brings to life Homer's ancient epic of Odysseus and his trouble-fraught journey home from the Trojan War. A voyage of two-weeks turns into ten years as capricious gods and wayward mortals thwart the Hero’s passage across the 'wine-dark sea'. The infamous one-eyed Cyclops, the alluring Sirens, six-headed Skylla, and the terrible whirlpool of Charybdis are but a few of the legendary monsters in this timeless adventure story. Through courage, cleverness and determination Odysseus triumphs over these trials and eventually is reunited with his family. Tales From the Odyssey is designed to introduce young audiences (ages 7 & up) and their families to one of the foundational stories of western literature. The visual elements in this poetic presentation are inspired by ancient Greek painted ceramics. Available June -December 2015, the show is well-suited for public libraries and small community venues. In fact, it's a perfect fit for the 2015 Summer Reading Theme: Every Hero Has A Story.
