Stage

Staged Reading/Acting Workshop

When: Tue., March 20 2012

My wife scoffs at the breathlessness of sporting events like March Madness, with TV announcers lauding "warriors" who "do battle" for "ultimate" glory. I often scoff back at her inability to appreciate pure (cough, cough) human drama. But tonight, the Pikes Peak Library District's ongoing Ancient Greeks/Modern Lives programming leaves me no choice but to smarten up. At 7, the New York-based Aquila Theatre group will be running through staged readings of scenes from Greek classics, then giving way to a town hall-style discussion about the similarities between ancient heroes and today's military veterans. Head to East Library (5550 N. Union Blvd., ppld.org) for a shot of perspective before the Sweet 16 gets underway on Thursday. — Kirk Woundy
