Mary Moody Northen Theatre at St. Edward's University presents METAMORPHOSES

In Mary Zimmerman's METAMORPHOSES, the ancient and the contemporary collide to create a magical timelessness of mythic proportion. As each tale gracefully unwinds, the resiliency of the human spirit and the transformative power of love are revealed. Set in and around a large swimming pool, these stories — including those of King Midas, Orpheus and Eurydice, and Baucis and Philemon — make a big splash as they are brought to life by a team of 12 actors, gracefully changing roles throughout the play. Turbulent and hopeful, METAMORPHOSES is commanding storytelling.


    Based off the myths of Ovid

    Written and originally directed by Mary Zimmerman

    Guest directed by Christina J. Moore
