Myths and Monsters – Squashbox Theatre

Where can you find a creature that is half eagle and half lion? Or one that is half horse, half fish? Or half lion, half goat and half snake? Wait, that’s impossible… or is it? Not in the crazy, mixed-up world of ancient Greek stories, it’s not!Let Craig Johnson of Squashbox Theatre guide you through this strange, magical world, using a quirky and ingenious blend of puppetry, storytelling, live music and comedy – all presented in that unique Squashbox style!Meet the brave heroes and immortal gods of ancient Greece, such as Heracles, Odysseus, Perseus, Zeus and Aphrodite!Encounter some of the mixed-up monsters of legend, such as the Minotaur, the Harpies, the Cyclops and the terrifying gorgon, Medusa!Learn about the ways ancient Greece has shaped the modern world, from theatre and philosophy to mathematics and music!I have consulted the mysterious Oracle of Delphi and seen the future: and I can guarantee that Squashbox Theatre’s new show will be legendary!“Craig combines an innate understanding and joy in storytelling with fantastic comic and musical skill.”Mike Shepherd, Founder and Artistic Director, Kneehigh Theatre“Craig’s success lies in the fact that he talks to, rather than at, his young audience, and he does it all with a huge sense of joy and fun that is as inspiring as it is infectious.”Frank Ruhrmund, The Cornishman newspaper“An absolute celebration of all that is good about theatre for children.”What’s on Stage
