Description: In the boarded-up building of the now-closed School For Super-Heroes, alumni of the school’s drama club gather for a secret reunion – and a meeting of the underground Resistance to the repressive Regime. The founders of the club are missing, but they’ve left behind a tantalizing clue: It’s a partial script, telling the story of Theseus, the legendary hero and founder of democracy. Now, new leaders must step forward to lead the club and bring the script to life, mounting an audacious production that may be the last hope to reopen the realm of storytime, rescue the missing heroes, and undermine the Regime’s despotic power.

Homeward Bound is a rollicking musical based on The Odyssey by Homer. It tells the parallel stories of history’s most resourceful couple, Odysseus and Penelope. In his quest to return home after the Trojan War, the wily Odysseus surmounts challenges on land, at sea, and in the underworld. Meanwhile, shrewd Penelope must outmaneuver the Ithacan patriarchy to preserve her position, her independence, and her home. In addition to the questing hero and the besieged heroine, this fast-moving story features a runaway prince, scheming suitors, enchantresses, monsters, cannibals, giants, ghosts, a magic veil, a deadly whirlpool, and a shipwreck. Join us and help tell the tale that has enthralled human beings for 2800 years: An epic adventure, a domestic comedy, and an enduring love story.
