AN EXCLUSIVE run of Jason and the Argonauts comes to Cumbernauld Theatre next week.
The show, from Visible Fictions, is about to tour in the United States but is making a brief visit to Cumbernauld first.
Jason’s villainous uncle has murdered his brother, Jason’s father, and stolen the crown.
However, Jason, who was banished as a baby, plans to reclaim his rightful throne.
But first, Jason and the crew of the Argo must go on a quest for the golden fleece. All that stands between him and his goal are monsters, a dragon and clashing rocks...
Director Douglas Irvine said: “I’ve never forgotten seeing the Harryhausen film version for the first time as a child.
“The purity, inventiveness, thrills and scares it and the original story offer is something I want to pass onto new audiences.”
Suitable for ages nine years and up, Jason and The Argonauts can be seen at Cumbernauld Theatre on February 3 and 4. Tickets, priced £8/£7/£5, can be booked on 01236 732887 or from www.cumbernauldtheatre.co.uk. Family tickets are also available, priced £20.
