Bank of America Children's Tour

at Syracuse Stage NOV. 4 @ 11:00 a.m. 


Written and Directed by Lauren Unbekant
Scenic and Costume Design by Lindsey Vandevier
Original Composition & Sound Design by Emmett Van Slyke

Metamorphan is the story of a young orphan boy named Gregory, whose difficult foster home has made his life at school miserable. Gregory is teased by his classmates and the school bully “Skeet” for his shabby clothes, second hand sneakers and lack of kickball chops. Then one day with a little magic from the school custodian Frank, Gregory awakes to find himself transformed into a super-sports beetle and all bets are off!

Metamorphan is a fast paced comical yet endearing story of how a young boy overcame obstacles, stood up to bullies and made valuable friends.

Performed in striking visual terms, Metamorphan offers an extraordinary opportunity to share a rich theatrical experience with your students. The writer/director, designers, performers, and production crew are students and professionals from the Syracuse University Department of Drama and Syracuse Stage.

Recommended for K through 6th grade audiences.
