Montcalm Community College’s Drama Class presents “The Greek Mythology Olympiaganza (Iliad! Iliad! Iliad!).”
Complete with little green army men, a beauty pageant, and warring narrators, this is a side-splitting parody of The Iliad. Two narrators have a blast recreating Homer’s quintessential epic myth at a rapid pace and in wildly varying styles, as it morphs seamlessly from a musical, a modern drama, and a bizarre one-man show.
The cast includes the Greeks, Tyler Young of Ionia, Megan Waite of Sheridan and Amanda Hall of Belding; the Trojans, Lyndsee Cerny of Ionia, Tanya Douglas of Greenville and Nick Cooper of Greenville; narrator Janice Vandenberg of Belding; and MCC Visual Arts Coordinator and Director Carolyn Johnson.
Performances are at 2 p.m. on Nov. 10 and 2 and 4 p.m. on Nov. 11 at MCC’s Barn Theater. Admission is free.
Area schools and other groups may book private performances in November and December by contacting Performing Arts Coordinator Val Vander Mark at firstname.lastname@example.org 989-328-1218. The cost is $75 per performance.
