Dragons and sea monsters and giants–oh my! An all-star cast of Greek heroes, gods, and goddesses populate this epic maritime adventure about Jason, his crew of Argonauts, and their quest for the Golden Fleece. Adapted by the Tony Award-winning director and playwright of Metamorphoses and Arabian Nights (both previously produced at BYU), Argonautika weaves a lively tale the entire family will enjoy!

Argonautika Lunch and Learn

LUNCH AND LEARN is a free opportunity for all playgoers ages 8+ to participate in learning activities building on and inspired by Argonautika. BYU student “Teaching Artists” will lead the 60-minute Lunch and Learn workshop and then provide a free sack lunch and a space for participants to enjoy lunch before the play performance begins. One free meal will be provided by BYU for each registered participant.

TMA DEPARTMENT PRODUCTION: William Shakespeare’s Hamlet

This is not your parents’ plodding, reverent recitation of Shakespeare’s masterpiece. The masterpiece remains. But our production, taking cues from both Original Practice’s focus on popular entertainment, and from David Ball’s analysis of the play in his seminal text Backwards and Forwards, tells the story of the vengeful Dane as a contemporary spy thriller.

“When sorrows come, they come not single spies, but in battalions” –Claudius

This production is a TMA 671 graduate student directing project.
