Prometheus is a re-telling of the ancient story of the Titan god who gave the gift of fire to the human race. Written and directed by William Conte, Prometheus is a sprawling epic that begins with the origins of the universe and concludes in the present day. It will be staged outdoors in the back lot behind Stage III Community Theatre as a contemporary urban ritual in the style of the “Theatre of the Poor.”
Monday, August 21, 2017 at 10am will be a special performance in which Prometheus’s theft of fire from the sun coincides with the moment of the total solar eclipse. This unique theatrical event has no parallel in the history of the theatre.
It is literally a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for both actors and audience to participate in an unprecedented performance that unites one of humanity’s greatest legends with a celestial event that has fascinated people for thousands of years.
Tickets are $10 and includes entrance into the Street Fair showcasing local Wyoming artist, food catered by Jackie Conte, and a pair of eclipse viewing glasses.
