Overview

Welcome to Ancient Greece and the wedding of Pandora and Epimetheus! Pandora's a gift from Zeus, the king of the gods. A strange box appears amongst the wedding presents, and curiosity compels Pandora to open it. All manner of evil is released into the world! She grabs the box and runs away. This wasn't part of Zeus's plan! Follow the gods, goddesses, nymphs and mortals in their mad race to find Pandora and the box.

This mythical, fun-packed musical adventure, from the authors of the successful Shake, Ripple & Roll, runs approximately one-and-a-half hours, plus interval. The Greek chorus can involve a cast as large as required. With an exciting upbeat score and copious staging and author's notes, this musical should prove an excellent choice for drama groups of all ages.
