PENELOPE is a hilarious musical comedy set in Ancient Greece. Odysseus is off to war and his wife Penelope is running the Kingdom. A quartet of singing and dancing suitors follow Penelope everywhere, and to manage their expectations, she writes outrageous letters to herself, which she grandly presents to the court, recounting Odysseus' extraordinary adventures at sea. The suitors are inspired to assemble their own rock acapella group, mayhem and comedy ensue when Odysseus returns from war. 

“A classic tale in a smart and amusing new way.”

“It's funny, it’s fierce and, above all, it's epic!”
