Gunn’s Fall 2018 Play: Metamorphoses by Mary Zimmerman

 You don’t need to know a thing about Greek mythology to understand and enjoy Metamorphoses.  In adapting Ovid’s Metamorphoses for the stage, theatre visionary Mary Zimmerman has created a work of stunning beauty and emotion.   Her fanciful updating of the Latin classic was a surprise hit on Broadway.  We have assembled a cast of nineteen Gunn actors, each of whom plays multiple roles, to bring to the stage a most memorable production.  In addition, the stage crew has constructed an unbelievably beautiful set surrounding a POOL of WATER on stage. The stories of Ovid and Metamorphoses have a vital, enduring, and universal quality which touches something inside each of us.  This powerful, timely, and timeless piece of theatre is just right for these “interesting times” and is not to be missed.  See you at the theatre!   Purchase Metamorphoses tickets here!

  Opening Night Lecture and Gala Friday, November 2nd at 6:00 p.m.

Come celebrate opening night with wonderful Greek treats and lively company.  You are sure to enjoy the show even more after hearing another one of our scholar emeritus Mr. Tim Farrell’s illuminating talks. Tickets are $25 for this evening and it will be held in the Gunn Faculty Lounge.  Proceeds support the Gunn Theatre Boosters. Purchase Tickets HERE!
