JOIN US for the final week of

Metamorphoses, the area premiere of
James and the Giant Peach … and more!
Six more chances to experience Metamorphoses! This Tuesday through Saturday at 8 p.m. and Sunday at 2 p.m. in our Pinkerton Theatre
Based on the myths of Ovid | Written and originally directed by Mary Zimmerman
Venice Theatre production directed by Kathy Pingel | Sponsored by Laura B. Kopple, Inc.

This unique production brings Ovid’s ancient myths to stunning visual life. Set in and around a pool of water, Mary Zimmerman’s re-telling juxtaposes the ancient and the contemporary in both language and image.

Here’s what our audiences have been saying:
  • 90 minutes passed so quickly. The water aspect created a creatively entertaining twist to the old and familiar myths. ~ Lin
  • … a phenomenal production.  The direction, costumes, scenery, lighting, staging … all blended together and the water made it magical. Special mention should be made of Melyssa Dawson’s role as Hunger. I didn’t know a body could move like that. An exciting, moving production, everyone performed beautifully. ~ Rose & John
  • I thoroughly enjoyed Metamorphoses! I thought the set/stage was outstanding! The costuming a visual treat! And the acting superb! Loved it!
    The message of the Greek mythology is so full of timely insight & wisdom. Thank you for sharing this! ~ Ann
  • … extremely well performed by every actor. I am always surprised by the professional quality of Venice theater productions now and look forward to next season’s shows – especially in the Pinkerton where experiment and surprise are a delight. ~ John
  • I enjoyed the performance and became very emotionally involved – and a bit teary at the end.  Maybe it was thinking of four years of Latin years ago and the importance of continuing the culture of our past.  Thank you for the selection of this play. ~ Sara

Roald Dahl’s 

James and the Giant Peach
A Generations Musical on MainStage May 17-22 
Directed and Choreographed by Brad Wages
Musical Direction by Eli Schildkraut
We’re saving the best for last! Celebrate the end of the school year with this “delightfully offbeat” adaptation of the classic Roald Dahl adventure story.
Join James and his insect friends on their amazing journey across the ocean on a giant peach. With a wickedly tuneful score and a curiously quirky script, critics rave that James and The Giant Peach is a “masterpeach!”
Hurry up and get your tickets for the whole family. Roald Dahl’s James and the Giant Peach only runs for a week.  Just like the school year, it’ll be over before you know it!

Tonight is the our final Guild Spotlight of the Season. The young, musically gifted cast of James and the Giant Peach are ready to give you a look at what audiences will see – and hear (their voices are heavenly) – when the show opens to the public on MainStage May 17.

Spotlights are members-only events, (click here now to join!) although you are welcome to bring your own guests. As always, we gather at 5:30 p.m. in the lobby where there will be plenty of refreshments and the bar will be open for business. Then it’s into MainStage to meet Director Brad Wages and get our advance look at the delightful musical, James and the Giant Peach.
