Homer’s The Odyssey performed by Montana Repertory Theatre
September 14, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
The Northeastern Arts Network kicks off their Big Sky Concert Series on September 14th when Montana Repertory Theatre presents “THE ODYSSEY” adapted by BRIANDANIEL OGLESBY.
The Odyssey follows the journey of Odysseus as he encounters Cyclops, sirens, and more on his 10-year voyage home after the Trojan War. Oglesby’s adaptation condenses this sprawling tale into a fast-paced, slapstick comedy performed by a small ensemble of three actors playing dozens of characters. Through imaginative storytelling and physical comedy, the play captures the poetry and tragedy of the original work while making it accessible to modern audiences.
Every fall, the Montana Repertory Theatre, a professional theatre company in residence at the University of Montana’s School of Theatre and Dance in Missoula, MT, tours a short play and accompanying workshop to schools across Montana. The Northeastern Arts Network is proud to host this production which is perfect for the entire family.
This play will be held at the MonDak Heritage Center in Sidney at 7:00 p.m. Tickets can be purchased at the door – $20/Adult, $17/Sr., $15/Student.
