NCT to present kids’ plays Friday night
The Newton Community Theatre will perform two productions Friday at its auditorium at the Newton YMCA. The shows begin at 7 p.m. with “Hercules,” followed by “The Brothers Grimm: Out of Order.”
“Hercules,” written by Craig Sodaro, is a modern-language comedy that retells the ancient Greek tale. Hercules’ girlfriend, Megara, has been poisoned by Hera, who is jealous, and now he must complete eight tasks for Hera, or lose Megara’s love forever.
The problem: Hercules is just a young human man. He can’t perform any great feats of strength, nor is he particularly clever. You’ll have to see the production to find out how he humbles the cocky Stymphalian birds, gets the best of the shady Arcadian stag, resists the Erymanthian Bore, cleans up King Augeus’ act and gives the Hydra heads a new hairdo to be reunited with Megara.
