RIDGEWOOD, N.J. -- The Ridgewood High School New Players Company will present "Metamorphoses" on Thursday through Saturday, May 12-14.
Mary Zimmerman's 'Metamorphoses' brings Ovid's tales to stunning visual life. Set in and around a large pool of water onstage, 'Metamorphoses' juxtaposes the ancient and the contemporary in both language and image to reflect the variety and persistence of narrative in the face of inevitable change.
The work was nominated for three Tony Awards in 2002, including Best Play, and it won Zimmerman a Tony for Best Direction of a Play.
Louisa Vilardi will directed, and Molly McCarthy and Katie VanBuskirk are stage managers. Music is by Evan Beirne and Emily Kopec.
The production stars Katherine Kearney, Jack Slomin, Cammy Lucca, Michael Crowe, Maeve Montague, Sally Wantanabe, Teddy Wavle, Hayley Tyrrell, Nik Gambardella, Sara Vaccaro, Chloe Blauner, Patrick Meyer, Jess Marr, Ben Feder, Carly Corcoran, Jack Mathey, Morgan Mastrangelo, Sam Flynn, Abby McKenna, Sofia Gambardella, Olivia Cherry, Devon Allan, Cat Taura, Brendan Sheehan and Julia Louizides.
Tickets are $15, or $10 for students, seniors and staff: you can buy them online here.
The performances will be at 7 p.m. on May 12, and 8 p.m. on May 13-14, at the Little Theater at Ridgewood High School, 627 E. Ridgewood Ave.
