The Greek Mythology Olympiaganza
by Don Zolidis

Directed by Jennifer Hamilton
Presented by Oregon Coast Council for the Arts Summer Theatre Camp

A comedic joy! Two battling narrators attempt to cover the entirety of Greek mythology using audience participation, role-reversal, and general theatrical insanity. Creation myths such as Pandora’s Box and Cronos and the Titans jostle for space with other famous myths like Jason and the Argonauts (the original Super Friends). Culminating in a heart-pounding, five-minute, two-actor version of The Iliad, this fast-paced, free-wheeling play is wild, silly, and a complete blast for all ages.

Produced by special arrangement with Playscripts, Inc. (
