PANDORA AND THE JAR OF HOPE - Theatre Arts School of San Diego

Pandora has opened the jar given to her by Zeus, inadvertently unleashing Ambition, Competition, Greed, Envy, Jealousy, Hatred, Injustice, Treachery and Disease into the world. These spirits are bound to haunt the earth for eternity. Luckily, Pandora closed the jar before its contents were completely released, leaving one element to remain: Hope. This immersive piece will engage WOW audiences through large-scale puppetry, dance, music, spoken word and forum-style theatre. Directed and written by Courtney Corey and Wendy Maples, with music by Matthew Armstrong.

Theatre Arts School of San Diego (TAS+SD)

was founded in 2012 at Liberty Station by Courtney Corey, whose credits include the original Los Angeles and Chicago productions of Wicked, the first and second national tours of Rent, as well as La Jolla Playhouse, The Old Globe. TAS+SD has been producing innovative, outside-the-box theatre pieces and experiences for diverse young theatre artists for the past seven years and is proud to present their first professional piece for the San Diego theatre community at the WOW Festival.
