The Appleton North High School theatre department will present Tony Award-winning playwright Mary Zimmerman’s critically acclaimed play, ARGONAUTIKA on May 3RD -6TH in the Appleton North High School auditorium. With dazzling visuals and fantastical storytelling in Zimmerman’s unique theatrical style, ARGONAUTIKA recounts the adventures of Jason and his crew of famous Greek heroes, including Hercules, aboard the ship Argo in their quest for the Golden Fleece. Danger lurks at every turn as the Argonauts encounter sea-monsters and water nymphs, wicked and savage kings, a city of women, a dragon, and an army of warriors sprung from the earth. The goddesses Hera, Athena and Aphrodite each offer celestial protection during the Argonauts' perilous journey. However, no danger proves as great as the overwhelming love of a teenaged witch named Medea.
The North Theatre program is the first to be granted performance rights to ARGONAUTIKA after its successful professional run. Ron Parker, theatre director states, “It’s an incredible honor to be given this opportunity. Because of the history we have had presenting other works by Ms. Zimmerman including METAMORPHOSES, ARABIAN NIGHTS, THE ODYSSEY, and last year’s SECRET IN THE WINGS, she granted us the first license ever to perform the as of yet unpublished script. It really is unprecedented that this little high school in Wisconsin will be the first after Ms. Zimmerman’s original theatre company ever to stage what critics have called ‘sheer genius’ and ‘a masterpiece.’ There is even a chance that the famous playwright and director will travel to Appleton to attend one of the performances! We are both incredibly humbled and excited!”
