Lone Star College-North Harris fine arts presents “The Odyssey”

The Lone Star College-North Harris Division of Fine Arts presents “The Odyssey,” by Homer. Performances are scheduled for February 26 through March 2.

This dramatic adaptation of Homer's myth begins with a modern young woman who is struggling to understand Robert Fitzgerald's translation of “The Odyssey.” A classical muse appears, and the young woman becomes the goddess Athena--a tireless advocate for Odysseus in his struggle to get home. This irreverent and witty twist on a classic brings to life the story of Odysseus's ten-year journey, depicting his encounters with characters such as Circe, the Cyclops, Poseidon, Calypso, the Sirens, and others.

Nightly performances will take place Wednesday, February 26 through Saturday, March 1 at 7:30 p.m. On Sunday, March 2, the play will conclude with a 2 p.m. matinee show.

Tickets are $10 for general admission and $5 for students, faculty and seniors. Group discounts are available. Reservations are recommended. The performances will take place in the LSC-North Harris Performing Arts Theater located in the Fine Arts Building at 2700 W.W. Thorne Drive, Houston, Texas.
