    GSODA Junior Players: 'Hercules the Panto!

    GSODA Junior Players are very excited to be presenting 'Hercules the Panto!’ 

    He’s strong, mighty, a hero, all singing, all dancing, and here in Geelong!

    In a venue as big as he is, get ready for Hercules - The Panto to take to the stage in The Geelong Arena in 2019.

    Let the GSODA Junior players transport you to Athens, to the theatre of Dionysus, in a pantomime that promises to have you clutching your stomach, rolled over in balls of laughter, tapping your toes along to a catchy catalogue of multigenerational hits, and dancing away in your seats.

    A classic tale with a healthy dose of twists and turns, this story is unlike any version of Hercules that you have ever seen or heard before. Will Hercules find his true love? Will Medusa run a successful hair styling business? Will the Kings daughter marry a pop star?

    Confused? Come along to the Geelong Arena to see Hercules - The Panto, and all will be revealed!

    Directed by Nicole Kaminski, Vocal Direction by Shayne Lowe and Choreography by Jana Kolacz
