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

The kids were absolutely adorable, the ballerinas were SO pretty, and it all looked like a lot of time and effort was put into it. Given it was opening night, there were obviously a few issues with sound systems and such but it didn't detract at all from the classical beauty. The historic theater, while somewhat on the smaller size, is the perfect atmosphere to see a Christmas classic.
Directed by Patricia Berrend
Choreography by Mary Day, Founder, The Washington Ballet
