Tales of Olympus: A Greek Myth Musical

Book, Music & Lyrics by Min Kahng
A commission by Bay Area Children's Theatre.

Peering down from their home on Mt. Olympus, the ancient Greek gods see a fast-paced, modern world filled with high-tech distractions. Holy Thunderbolts! Who will remember their stories?

Calliope, the goddess of epic poetry, descends from the mountaintop to enlist the help of a mortal. But will this mortal, Jason, have the guts to overcome his stagefright and become the next bard?
