Center Stage Theatre to present ‘The Penelopiad’ Nov. 15-19

St. Charles Community College’s Center Stage Theatre will present The Penelopiad Nov. 15-19, in the Donald D. Shook Fine Arts Building theater on the SCC campus.

The show will be performed at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday-Saturday, Nov. 15-18; 10 a.m. Thursday, Nov. 16; and 2 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 19. Tickets are free to SCC students with ID, or $8 general admission and $6 seniors, veterans and students. The campus is located at 4601 Mid Rivers Mall Drive in Cottleville.

The Penelopiad is Margaret Atwood's new stage adaptation of her own wry, witty and wise novel. In what amounts to a theatrical Olympiad, Penelope and her wronged maids tell their side of the story - how she patiently and devotedly waited 20 years for the return of her husband Odysseus from the Trojan War, only to have him repay her and her maids' devotion with heart-wrenching ruthlessness. Full of music, poetry and movement, this new telling of an ancient story echoes with the fluidity of the original mythic material and timeless resonance for today.
