Greek gods are goosed and Shakespeare is shaken up in two one-act plays, My Big Fat Greek Myth and Great Scott! The Scottish Musical, performed by members of the 2014 Gaithersburg Inclusive Companies. My Big Fat Greek Myth scales Mt. Olympus to find the gods throwing an epic shindig. But amid the fluffy clouds and flowing nectar, a snubbed party guest plots trouble. Pivoting from myths to Macbeth, Great Scott! follows the efforts of a ragtag troupe to perform a musical take on Shakespeare's haunted tale. Featuring a cast of adult actors with intellectual disabilities and directed by theater professionals, ArtStream's Inclusive Theatre Companies produce original musicals based on members' own ideas, characters and improvisations. Products of months of hard work, the plays showcase the unique talents of each actor. Learn More

“Exhilarating…a rapid-fire musical funhouse!” —New York Magazine
One of the biggest Off-Broadway and Broadway successes of all time, Godspell tells the Gospel According to St. Matthew in a pageant of clowning, pantomime, charades, acrobatics, and vaudeville. Featuring an eclectic and sparking score by Stephen Schwartz that includes rock, folk, gospel, and Broadway music, Godspell boasts a string of recognizable songs, including “Day by Day,” “Prepare Ye the Way of the Lord,” “Learn Your Lessons Well,” and “By My Side.”
This new summer family attraction is produced under the auspices of Olney Theatre Center’s young artist education program, Olney Theatre Institute. The production will feature young professional actors from the finest regional talent and from outside the immediate area.
Music and lyrics by Stephen Schwartz
Directed by Eve Muson
