Doane Theatre to Present "The Odyssey"

Doane College will present the drama The Odyssey, Nov. 18-20. 

This dramatic adaptation of Homer's myth begins with a modern young woman who is struggling to understand Robert Fitzgerald's translation of The Odyssey. A classical muse appears, and the young woman becomes the goddess Athena--a tireless advocate for Odysseus in his struggle to get home. This new adaptation brings to life the story of Odysseus's ten-year journey through movement, music and theatricality, depicting his encounters with characters such as Circe, the Cyclops, Poseidon, Calypso, the Sirens, and others.

Performances begin at 7:30 p.m. in the Whitcomb Lee Conservatory, 1014 Boswell Ave., in Crete.

Tickets are $5 or free with a Doane ID, and can be purchased at the door.

For tickets or more information, contact the Faulty Office at 402.826.8256.
