Overview

Part of this year's Lighthouse Outside programme, taking place in the amphitheatre to the side of Lighthouse in summer 2022. An unforgettable theatre, music, comedy (for the grown ups and for kids) and more in our open air setting.  

You'll be seated on the grass, so please bring your own chairs, picnic rug, blankets and cushions to sit on.

 

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.

We have consulted the mysterious Oracle of Delphi and seen the future: and I can guarantee that Squashbox Theatre’s new show will be legendary!

 

For children aged 6+ and their families 

Myths and Monsters is 55 mins long
