Characters from Greek mythology come to life in this TV talent show parody. It’s hosted by Poseidon, the surfer dude Sea God, and Hades, the stage manager. All the Greek gods and goddesses compete to see who’s the ultimate hero based on audience text message voting. Judges include rock star Apollo and goddesses Artemis and Hestia. Zeus and his illegitimate son Perseus keep Medusa’s head covered to save the audience from turning to stone, but they run off when Zeus’ nagging wife Hera shows up. Nike runs in with a victory cheer, but sad messenger Hermes is obsolete due to text messaging. Appearances are made by Athena, Medea, Odysseus, Aphrodite, Atalanta, Ares, Calliope, Clio, Circe, and other gods, muses, and heroes. All explain who they are and why they should win. But the texts say that humble Hestia’s homemade cookies rock, so she’s the ultimate hero. A fun way to introduce students to the characters of Greek mythology. Easy to stage.
