ABOUT ABOUT

Page to Stage is a Pre-Professional  training program where literature is brought to life in a meaningful way through in-depth study of narrative, dialogue, character, plot, circumstance, and social relevance. Each semester focuses on a different book and results in a staged performance of the story.

Story Summary: Treachery, betrayal, and vengeance-these are the hallmarks of Jason’s tale. When he was but a baby, his own uncle murdered his parents. Jason returns to Thessaly to avenge their deaths and reclaim the throne. Despite his youth and inexperience, Jason makes a bargain with his uncle-he will sail in search of the famed golden fleece in return for the crown. With his young crew, the untried Hercules and budding poet Orpheus, as ready as they will ever be, the sailors begin their voyage. Their quest takes the naive warriors to lands cursed and deceptively sweet, where they must fight ferocious supernatural creatures. But when they finally make their destination, the land of the golden fleece, Jason finds his strength and captures his treasure.
