Theatre
Metamorphoses Opening Night

The Ballard Playmakers theatrical group will perform Mary Zimmerman's Tony Award winning Metamorphoses for a five-performance run.

This is an exciting and dramatic season opener: riding the current trend of experiential theater, the play, based on Greek transformation myths, takes place entirely in a pool that is being custom-built by Ballard's tech crew. This show promises to be a remarkable experience!
