Auditions: August 26, 27, 28

Around the World in 8 Plays

A traveling troupe of actors take the audience around the world as they explore forgotten myths and unusual legends. Both fast paced and hilarious this play allows the actors to improvise and interact with the audience making sure it is never the same twice. Stories included are tales from the ancient Far East, where a hero must kill a giant centipede to save a dragon king, to the Russian countryside, where a poor orphan must defeat three witches who stole his grandfather’s eyes. Always quirky, and sometimes bizarre, these eight tales are filled with magic and mystery.
