Rehearsals are underway for the Newark High School Drams Club’s October 10 &11 performances of “Argonautika.”
“Argonautika” is the story of Jason and the Golden Fleece that features some well known Greek mythology characters such as Athena, Hera, Aphrodite, Eros, Hercules, and Medea.
“I was really drawn to this script because there is a true sense of ensemble in this piece,” Director Emily Howard said. “The actors are working together as a company to create all of these really interesting scenes of adventure. We have dragons, sea monsters and skeletons that come to life. We’re using movement and music to enhance the storytelling. I’m very excited about the creative possibilities that we’re working on together.”
