Nobles Parents E-Newsletter October 2010

From the Nobles Theatre Collective



This fall, the Nobles Theatre Collective (NTC) presents Metamorphoses, based on the Myths by Ovid, written by Mary Zimmerman. Performances are scheduled for Nov. 10 and 11, at 6:30 p.m., Nov. 12 at 7:30 p.m. and Nov. 13 at 2 p.m. only. We look forward to seeing many of you then.

Below is a synopsis of the play from Todd Morton, Acting Director of Theatre:

Metamorphoses, a retelling of classical Greek mythology, mixes the ancient stories of pathos and tragedy with contemporary language, humor and thought. The play offers a compassionate view of the human condition. In Zimmerman’s Metamorphoses, we witness the transformative power of love, redemption and forgiveness in the stories of Midas, Orpheus and Eurydice, Eros and Psyche and others, all enacted in a unique and memorable stage set. The play was performed on Broadway and won the 2002 Tony Award for Best Director.

A New York Times reviewer wrote, “Ms. Zimmerman makes an ardent and eloquent case for the importance of a personal mythology that gives order to the chaos of suffering.”

We are pleased to recommend this production for new and experienced theatergoers of all ages. Information on tickets and performance length will be available at www.nobles.edu by early November.
