Where can you find a creature that is half eagle and half lion? Or one that is half goat, half fish! Or half horse, half human? Or half lion, half goat and half snake? Wait, that’s impossible… or is it? Not in the crazy, mixed-up world of ancient Greek stories, it’s not! (It’s called a Chimera)
Meet the brave heroes and immortal gods of ancient Greece, such as Theseus, Perseus, Zeus, Apollo and Aphrodite!
Encounter some of the mixed-up monsters of legend, such as the Minotaur, the Harpies, the terrifying Gorgons and the not terrifying-at-all-and-rather-silly Sea Goat!
Learn about the ways ancient Greece has shaped the modern world, from theatre and philosophy to mathematics and music!
Let Squashbox Theatre guide you through this ancient, magical world, using a quirky and ingenious blend of puppetry, storytelling, live music and comedy - all presented in that unique Squashbox style!
For children aged 4+ and their families.
