An epic battle between Hercules and Hades over dominion of Mount Olympus will be waged next week in Red Deer.

Cornerstone Youth Theatre presents Hercules — A Hero’s Tale, starting from Friday, May 30, at First Church of the Nazarene at 2 McVicar St.

The stage production that runs to June 8 features Greek mythology at its most thrilling: Hercules, the awkward hero, fights ruthless monsters aided by his loyal sidekick, Platie, and his hardly helpless love interest, Nani.

Audience members can “watch this boy grow into the man he wants to be, as he learns to use his might for what’s right!”

Zeus, Hades and his minions will co-star in this production about kidnapping, bribery, riddles and romance.

Advance tickets are $12 ($11 seniors/$10 children, during school day performances). Tickets at the door are $14 or $10 for school day matinees.
