Actor Brian McEleney graces the Denizen Theatre stage in this adaptation of Homer’s epic, joined not by another actor, but cellist Erich Schoen-Rene. In the tale, the “Trojan war and modern-day collide” as McEleney “recounts familiar tales of gods and goddesses, conflicts and battles, and humanity’s unshakeable attraction to destruction.” Tickets are $5 for students and $25 for all other theatergoers.


Your Dance Closet, Cornwall
March 24-26

“Come As You Are” to this production of Godspell, which is set “in the ’90s in Seattle at the forefront of the Grunge music scene.” (See what we did there?) In this reimagination of Stephen Schwartz’s iconic musical, “a group of musicians, groupies, a barkeep, a waitress, [and] an angsty janitor” are brought together by the new ideas of one “unassuming woman.” The show begins at 7 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, with a 2 p.m. matinee on Sunday.
