The play “The Greek Mythology Olympiaganza” is currently being practiced at Monroe High School and will be presented March 23-25. The show is told by Narrator One (senior Jordan Jewell) and Narrator Two (junior Jacob Foulkrod). “The Greek Mythology Olympiaganza” includes multiple popular mythological stories with humorous twists told in a school presentation form.

The director of the play is Carol Sliwka, an English teacher at MHS. Sliwka is retiring this year, so she believes this play is perfect for her to end with. She said she has fun with the new people in the program and watching them progress.

Sliwka is thrilled to work with the experienced and inexperienced cast members for “The Greek Mythology Olympiaganza.”

“I’m very excited to be working with such a talented cast. We have some newcomers, and it’s always fun to see them find their stage presence,” said Sliwka.

As narrator, Jewell will be talking through the collection of popular plays in the show.

Jewell describes the play as two narrators who tell all the Greek myths, but with weird events added in to make the story more interesting.

The cast mates have had a few obstacles through the process of the play, but they have been compromised with the help of Sliwka.

Sophomore Emmy Krupinski, the Aphrodite and siren of “The Greek Mythology Olympiaganza.” She said the lack of space provided to the cast mates adds stress to the process but Sliwka’s directing makes the play better.

“It gets a little stressful with the lack of space on the stage, but with Mrs. Sliwka’s well thought out directing, it’s coming along nicely,” said Krupinski.

Tickets for the show will be $10 for adults and $5 for all MPS students and staff. They can be purchased from Drama Club advisor Alison Drougel in room A219 or at the door.
