Kathy Cox aka Kathy Lynnwood’s New Play
Friend and client Kathy Cox has written a play! Hercules: A Greek Legend is a play based on the legends of Hercules and the Greek Gods. This play is written specifically for middle school actors, a large cast, and to include all the fun stuff that kids this age enjoy, while still staying true to the storyline. It includes the lead Hercules along with his nemesis Hera and his eventually love interest…Hebe. And there’s mystery…Hercules’ birth and his true father. It includes magic. It includes huge monsters played in mascot/puppetry outfits with multiple actors inside. It includes a group of nymphs who dance and sing and play…even in the audience between scenes. (A show within a show). If you are interested in the script or seeing a performance, contact me and I’ll be glad to share Kathy’s contact info!
