Meeting the players

So you’ve read the cast list, and maybe even visited our website to get more details. But how well do you know these characters?

Meet some of the players of the hilarious new musical, Lysistrata Jones.

 Here’s the 411 on our leading lady – Lysistrata has great girlfriends and is dating the hunky captain of the basketball team: 

BUT something’s still not right – the basketball team never wins, and never even tries! They’re in it for the team parties. Lyssie is at a loss on how to get these guys motivated…

Enter Robyn:

Sure, she looks angry & possibly scary – but she’s in the middle of a serious poetry slam. Lyssie (in a rare moment) finds herself at the school library, where Robyn works. Lyssie learns about the classic Greek play her parents named her after, and gets a totally brilliant plan.

NO. MORE. BOOTY.

Give up ‘giving it up’ to the guys? This just might work…
