It was a wonderful production, giving us a variety of Greek mythology. Good voices for singing and a versatile cast. The backdrop was the acropolis , the rooftop was the stage. Wine and blankets were given for the chill of the night. All in all, a most pleasant and entertaining evening. It was more than an hour
