Asolo Rep On Tour Public Performances

Join us for this year's Asolo Rep On Tour! Public Performances are available to the general public and are great opportuntiies for families to see theatre, make art, and connect with each other.

Dates coming soon! Designed for all audiences.

An epic Greek poem becomes an adventure of universal proportions in this 45-minute adaptation of Homer’s iconic tale, presented by Asolo Rep and produced by the FSU/Asolo Conservatory for Actor Training.

LOOKING FOR ITHACA: AN ODYSSEY is an imaginative retelling of the classic journey of a family that has been fractured by war and unseen forces. The story is told through the eyes of a family fighting their way back to one another: Odysseus, a father whose yearning for his wife and child drives him to traverse the dangers hidden in the sea; Penelope, a mother protecting what’s left of her home and her family; and Telemachus, a son embarking on an Odyssey of his own, looking to fill the shoes of an unknown father. They may return home, but that isn’t where their journey ends.

Sharing Stories

Join Asolo Rep Artists as we bring stories to life in the community!

Each event centers around a book or story, inviting language learners to explore stories together using their minds, bodies, and voices. Asolo Rep Teaching Artists challenge participants to share the books we read and stories we tell in imaginative, dramatic, and fun ways. Available for both in-classroom early language learners and families of all ages.
