The Department of Theater Arts at Saddleback College will be opening a new show next week in the McKinney Theatre.
“Metamorphoses-A Play” will be opening on Nov. 7 at 7:30. The adaptation of the classic poem by Greek writer Ovid is described on the Fine Arts department website as, “…deeply moving and humorous, weaving familiar Greek mythology into a stunning exploration of love, loss, memory, imagination and the power to adapt and endure.”
The play first opened on Broadway in February 2002.
That year, it was nominated for three Tony Awards, with writer and director Mary Zimmerman receiving the Tony for Best Direction of a Play.
“Metamorphoses-A Play” will be running at the McKinney Theatre from Nov. 7 to Nov. 9 at 7:30 p.m., and from Nov. 9 to Nov. 10 at 2:30 p.m.
Tickets will cost $15 for the general public, while students and seniors can get in for $10.
