Fairytale Town presents 'The Readers of Homer' | Arts & Culture
Friday, Jun. 22, 6:30 p.m. through Saturday, Jun. 23, 7 a.m.
From dusk till dawn, 200 individuals--including children, veterans, poets and teachers--will read aloud pre-assigned passages from Homer's great epic, "The Odyssey." The poem follows the famous hero, Odysseus, and his 10-year struggle to reach home following the end of the Trojan War.
The all-night, nonstop reading, presented in partnership with the Readers of Homer, will take place on the outdoor Mother Goose Stage.
The park opens at 6:30 p.m., and the reading begins at 7:30 p.m.
Attendees are welcome to bring lawn chairs and/or tents.
The reading is free for active-duty military, veterans, students with valid ID and children ages 12 and under. Advance tickets are $20 for adults. Day-of tickets are $25 for adults. Tickets will be available for purchase at www.fairytaletown.org and the box office beginning May 15.
