Homer’s epic poem will come alive at the Mountain View Commons gym, 1925 Blaine St., in the production starring youngsters from 5 to 17 years old.
Performances are set for 7 p.m. today and next Friday, March 22; at 3 p.m. this Sunday; and finally at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. next Saturday, March 23.
Admission is by any contribution at the door, with a suggested donation of $10 for adults and $5 for children.
The show, supported by the Jefferson County YMCA and the Port Townsend Arts Commission, is a benefit for the Opportunity, Community, Experience, Academics, Navigation — or OCEAN — program, an independent-study project in Port Townsend’s public school, and no one will be turned away, co-director Marc Weinblatt said.
Cyclops and Scylla
Puppets will include a 10-foot-tall cyclops and six-headed Scylla made by local sculptor Thaddeus Jurczynski with help from students and parents.
Most of the seating will be on the gym floor, and audience members are encouraged to bring their own seating.
