Odysseus and his sailors journey home from the Trojan War and along the way encounter the one-eyed Cyclops, hear the irresistible song of the sirens, and are wooed by the goddess Circe. You are not immersed in the pages of Homer’s epic. You are at McCarter Theater, where Chris Parks and the education department have organized a free, family performance of “The Odyssey Experience,” on Sunday, March 10.
The audience is part of the show and uses its imagination to set the scene for Oysseus’ great adventure. Students, along with professional actors, become engrossed in all aspects of the theatrical production.
The Odyssey Experience, McCarter Theater, 91 University Place, Princeton. Sunday, March 10, 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. Free. 609-258-2787 or www.mccarter.org.
