DANCERS

Our love and thanks to the dancers and their instructors who have offered their time and talent to help us celebrate our weekend of Greek culture through song and dance!

The Holy Cross folk dance groups participating in this weekend's festivities are:




PLAY ~ "Theseus and the Minotaur"

Based on Greek mythology.
Adapted for the stage by Alexandra Nemchik.
Production Crew: Helene Nemchik, Alexandra Nemchik, Gabrielle Nemchik, Eva Canellos

The terrible half-bull, half-man “Minotaur” of Crete lives in a huge maze called the labyrinth and demands four people a year to eat. But brave Prince Theseus of Athens launches an ambitious plan to slay the Minotaur, and with some help from the beautiful Cretan Princess Ariadne, he not only slays the monster, but also escapes the labyrinth, marries his sweetheart, and repairs strained relations between Athens and Crete.




PLEASE NOTE: All Festival performances are at the Plaka or Amphitheater. Times and locations are subject to change - please see updated schedule posted near the entrance gate or listen for updates from our emcees.
