The award-winning Happenstance Theater announces the world premiere of Pantheon. The Happenstance quintet delves into ancient Greek mythology with guest artist Craig Jaster ’83 generating a live musical score. In a pared-down 1940’s aesthetic, a chorus of workers assembles lightning bolts and mines the Underworld. Like Sisyphus they must endlessly repeat their tasks. With an ample smattering of amusement, the performers invoke the Muses, offer Sacrifice, suffer Hubris, consult Oracles, and meet Fate as they portray an array of mortals and Gods whose flaws reflect their own. Featuring Mark Jaster, Sabrina Mandell, Gwen Grastorf, Sarah Olmsted Thomas ’08, Alex Vernon and Craig Jaster ’83. Two sets of performances are currently scheduled for April 4-14 at Baltimore Theater Project and June 18-July 1 at Joe’s Movement Emporium in Mt Rainier.
