Saving the Greeks

Cornerstone Academy theater students poked fun at the ancient Greeks with two performances of the comedy, “Saving the Greeks: One Tragedy at a Time.” The show poked fun at mythology, and it was performed April 19-20.

“We had fun inserting characters that didn’t belong in Ancient Greece – for example Napoleon, a mailman, and a chorus from “Grease,” the American movie, not Greece,” stated July Pendergrass with Cornerstone Drama. In addition, Cornerstone middle school students designed and built a 10-foot cyclops that came to life through four puppeteers.

In Greek and Roman mythology, a Cyclops was a member of a primordial race of giants, each with a single eye in the middle of its forehead. Students also designed and painted a 15x30 feet backdrop. They also created additional projected backgrounds through the use of Cornerstone’s newly installed projector.
