Over sixty C-G-D high schoolers are readying for the spring play

            The lights are dimmed and the curtain is drawn in the Clarion-Goldfield-Dows High School gym. And dozens of students are preparing for their big spring production next week. This year’s play will be “The Greek Mythology Olympiaganza” by Don Zolidis.

            While it might not be a familiar title, the play will have lots of familiar characters that the audience can enjoy. The play’s synopsis describes the plot: Two battling narrators attempt to cover the entirety of Greek mythology using audience participation, cross-dressing, and general theatrical insanity. Famous myths such as Pandora's Box, Jason and the Argonauts, and the story of Hercules jostle for space with obscure, weird myths such as the myth of Linus and the legend of the Argus. Culminating in a bizarre, musical dance-influenced version of The Iliad complete with a full-scale battle of little green army men, this play is wild, silly, and a complete blast for audiences of all ages.
