Pasadena City College Performing and Communication Arts Theatre Department presents


Based on the Myths of Ovid
Written and originally directed by Mary Zimmerman

Directed by William Hickman

Metamorphoses is a ceremonial look at what it means to be human in an ever changing world. It mixes the classical stories of ancient Greek myths with modern poetic language and visual artistry centered around a large pool of water. Metamorphoses is, at its heart, a celebration of humankind’s better instincts of kindness and love.
