Rock opera plays Thursday

“Lysistrata’s War,” an original rock opera by the creators of “Guilty Pleasures,” will be showing at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival this summer.

Thursday will be the one chance to catch this production here in South Lake. In a fund-raising performance for the Lake Tahoe Community College study abroad trip, there will be a one-night only performance in the LTCC Duke Theater. Tickets for “Lysistrata’s War” are $10 and will be sold at the door. The show begins at 8 p.m.

Fashioned around the Greek play “Lysistrata,” co-creators David Hamilton and Mark D. Williams, take the story beyond the original comic premise. Set during the Peloponnesian war, the story of Lysistrata tells of how she brings the women of Athens and Sparta together to refuse sex with the men until they stop the war.

This musical explores the more serious issues of individuals and societies at war. This is LTCC’s first trip to the world famous Fringe Festival. This trip will provide students a chance to perform in front of an international audience and experience the largest theater festival in the world.
