Darien High School’s Theatre 308 will perform Mary Zimmerman’s “Metamorphoses,” a play exploring love, transformation and the enduring relevance of myth in our world.
— an announcement from Theatre 308
The play, written by Mary Zimmerman, melds classic and contemporary elements, based on the poet Ovid’s collection of Ancient Greek and Roman myths. “Metamorphoses” will have three performances, all at 7 p.m., from Thursday to Saturday, Nov. 17 to 20, in the high school Auditorium.
Live music composed by DHS student John Raskopf accompanies the storytelling.
The play is set in and around a pool of water, a symbol of reflection and transformation.
The production is directed by DHS English and drama teacher Dr. Andrew Rejan, and set construction and stage crew are led by Middlesex Middle School teacher Tim Sorensen. Over 50 students have contributed to the creative process as actors, musicians, stage managers, composers, artists, designers, set builders, and technicians.
Tickets are $10 for students/seniors and $20 for adults and may be purchased at Theatre308.org. All audience members are required to wear a mask in the auditorium and surrounding areas.
