MythMasters: Tales from Greek Mythology
Blow the dust off stories from ancient Greece and bring the power, majesty, and magic of Mount Olympus to life! MythMasters supplements your teachers’ units on Greek mythology and explores the stories of Phaeton and Helios, Orpheus and Eurydice, and Echo and Narcissus. Through a skillful blend of mime, comedy, drama, puppetry, masks, music, reverence, irreverence, and lots of audience participation, the gods and goddesses, heroes and villains, monsters and maidens of Greek mythology walk the earth once more.
