Three shows in one with classic themes and characters at each turn, the Chelsea High School Theatre Guild’s upcoming shows expect to be must-see.

The Chelsea High School Theatre Guild presents “The House of Atreus.” The shows are scheduled for April 13-14.

The CHS Theatre Guild describes the production this way:

“Three Classical Greek shows in one, this production follows the trials and devastation of descendants of Tantalus. Abridged versions of Hecuba by Eurpides, Agamemnon by Aeschylus, and Electra by Sophocles. Join us as Hecuba seeks revenge for her son’s early death, Agamemnon comes home from the Trojan War to meet a hero’s fate, and Electra leads a coup against her own family. In each succeeding generation, the House of Atreus was plagued by corruption, curses, and betrayal. This cycle of never-ending, bloody retribution ultimately ended only with one soul, who accepted the guilt and sought to make amends for his crime. By the eyes of Polymestor, the mind of Cassandra, and the hands of Orestes, join us for a tale woven by the Fates.”
