Charlotte Chorpenning explores Greek mythology in this adaptation of the Midas myth. Ambitious for power and wealth, King Midas wishes upon the statue of Goddess Cybele that everything he touches turns to gold. Not realizing the dramatic consequences of such a wish, Midas soon learns that even his food turns to gold. Now he must live with the constant fear that he may turn his beloved daughter, Tyra, to gold with just one touch. Determined to save her father, Tyra designs a game to teach her father that the simple truth can break the spell. Originally produced by the Goodman Theatre, Chicago, King Midas and the Golden Touch is a fascinating theatrical experience that brings ancient mythology alive for young audiences.
