Homer’s epic tale, “The Odyssey,” comes to life on Petra’s stage this November!
This classic story follows the valiant Odysseus as he endeavors to return to his home in Ithaca. Along the way, he encounters trials that test his mettle including the fearsome Cyclops, a witch that turns men into livestock, and a sea nymph that tries to keep him for eternity among others.
Meanwhile, back home, a rowdy bunch of suitors is trying to marry his long-suffering wife Penelope and steal the throne of Ithaca. This story for all ages is uniquely told through movement and minimalism and will be an epic show that you won’t want to miss!
There will be three performances: Friday, November 8, at 7 p.m. and Saturday, November 9, at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. Tickets are $10 for general seating and $24 for reserved seating.
