MEDUSA'S FIRST KISS
A New Rock Musical
About the show
Medusa has just started at Olympus High. Look, there’s sports star Atlas out on the field, Aphrodite cheerleading from the side, goth Persephone hanging out by the school gates and don’t forget mysterious school-witch Circe…
Maybe this is the school where Medusa will finally learn how to fit in. But soon enough she’s out with the gods, as mean girl Athena writes a load of nasty words on her locker and even her own snakes-for-hair decide to give her the cold shoulder. She’s on her own.
Will she ever find friends, let alone love? And who will help her along the way?
Through playful knitted puppetry and electrifying punk rock music, this brand new musical of self-acceptance and friendship is brought thrillingly to life.
Percy Jackson meets Heartstopper,
with rock songs...
