GOLD: The Midas Musical follows the story of King Midas who, after the death of his wife, hardens his heart and turns to greed for solace. When Dionysus, the god of having a good time, offers him the power of the Golden Touch, Midas can't refuse. Only his daughter Lydia believes that the King can return to the man he used to be, and she'll do everything in her power to get her father back. Using contemporary pop and musical theatre styles, this energized and expanded re-telling of the Greek myth invites parents and children to remember that nothing can replace the value of your family.
