Winking Kat has adapted the famous myth of "Hercules and the Golden Apple" into a fun and silly musical full of colorful characters from Greek mythology. The focus is on one of Hercules' twelve labors. Hera, wife of Zeus and always a nemesis of Hercules, constantly tries to thwart Hercules' quest to fulfill his many labors needed to free his soul from guilt. She even suggests that he retrieve two golden apples from her special golden apple tree because she believes Hercules will never be up to the task and will fail. But with help from his half-sister, Athena, the nymphs, and the Greek chorus, our hero might just succeed.
Original book and lyrics by P. Haines-Ainsworth. Music by Terence Alaric Levitt
