The show must return! Shaker Theatre opens its doors after two years with The Greek Mythology Olympiaganza 

 

The Shaker Theatre fills its seats for the first time in two years– limited capacity, of course– for the fall play on November 19, 2021. The Greek Mythology Olympiaganza blends traditional Greek myth and sarcastic wit, crafting the ultimate crowd-pleaser to welcome back audiences after a break from the stage. 

 

The performing arts were particularly affected by the pandemic; live theatre was no exception, with its very essence dependent on the silent dialogue between a performer and audience. Grace Commisso, who played Medea and more in the fall production, explored the future of live theatre and its possible changes, “I think people are going to appreciate it more, coming back to live theatre.”
