Welcome to the Circus: Circus Olympus

Ready for some fun with Greek mythology that also gives your students a chance to stretch themselves through physical action? Circus Olympus by Lindsay Price is all of that plus three plays in one – full length, one-act, and a twenty minute competition piece. The characters and staging are fun and the costuming is flexible – welcome to the circus!

The circus has come to town! Well… sort of. There’s no elephant on a bicycle but there are the Greek Geeks and have they got a story or two to tell. More specifically, a myth or two: Pandora’s Box, Persephone and the Underworld, King Midas, Athena and Arachne, and don’t forget the Mythapalooza Slam Jam!

A gleeful celebration with excellent large cast expansion and parts for all abilities. Circus elements are optional and are suggested for each myth.

With a cast size of 48 students, the talented performers at Wabasha Kellogg High School in Wabasha, MN definitely understand the true meaning of the word “ensemble”. Director Cris Medina was thrilled to share their success with their production:

Circus Olympus was a great script to build ensemble and give many students acting roles. 

Congratulations, Wabasha Kellogg High School!
