Washington Elementary School is proud to present the 2014 production of its Annual School Show with three performances on Friday, February 7 at 8:00 p.m. and Saturday, February 8 at 1:30 and 7:00 p.m., at Roosevelt Intermediate School, 301 Clark Street in Westfield, NJ.
This year’s production, Pandora’s Box draws from Greek mythology for a creative, contemporary and comedic spin on the age-old story of “good vs. evil.” The tale follows three Washington School kids who find the mythical box and, unable to resist the temptation to open it, unwittingly unleash four mischievous villains from Greek mythology: greedy Midas, jealous Medusa, vain Narcissus, and intolerant Ares. The adventure unfolds as these four immortals wreak havoc by spreading their vices throughout Washington School. As the kids endeavor to return the immortals with their evil traits back into Pandora’s Box, four “good” mythological characters come to their aid providing the “antidotes” to each of the evils. But the vices will not go quietly and an epic battle ensues between these forces of good and evil. Can the kids restore peace and harmony to their beloved school? For now, only the gods know how the story ends.
Tickets are available at the door, pending availability.
