A Modern Adaptation by Don Zolidis
Based on the original play by Aristophanes
Directed by Nathan Cummings

$10  for youth 21 and under
$15  for adults

Don Zolidis’s irreverent modern adaptation of Aristophanes’ classic play turns the original, written in 414 BC, into a contemporary comedy full of big birds and bigger laughs.

Fed up with a world of insurance salesman and petty problems, tow miscreants flee to the kingdom of the birds for a simpler life. While living there, the two scheme up a financial jackpot that could turn the birds’ land into a powerful utopia. Their only obstacle: the wrath of the gods. A hilarious and satirical look at politics, religion and the foolishness of mankind that revives and revamps Aristophanes’ classic comedy.

With a large cast consisting of 27 young performers of Sonoma County ranging in ages from 12-17 years old.

Underwritten by Stephen and Fiona Hamilton

Ages: 12 – 18
Tuition: $500
