This webpage is designed to familiarize you with the selected musical, Rock Odyssey, and give you access to curriculum to guide your instruction as you prepare students for the experience.

Rock Odyssey
Rock Odyssey is a fast and funny rock musical version of Homer's Odyssey for families to enjoy together. Travel from the heights of Mt. Olympus to the darkest Mediterranean caves with all the great characters from the greatest adventure tale of them all—the original rock idol Odysseus, his smart and soulful wife Penelope, his boy-band wannabe son Telemachus, the powerful gods Zeus, Athena and Poseidon, the one-eyed monster Cyclops, and the magical temptress Circe. And hear them like you've never heard them before—crooning love ballads and belting out anthems to a killer rock beat.
