Medusa and More Monsters will feature the fearsome monsters of Greek mythology. Medusa is known for her hair -- made entirely of snakes -- and a gaze that turns her victims to stone. The hero, Perseus, caused her death, and from her body sprang the winged horse named Pegasus. Audience members will enjoy learning about the celestial royal family and the constellations that represent them.

A 10-minute Q&A session will follow the show to answer any questions audience members may have.

Post-event note: Extra showings of Medusa and More Monsters were scheduled in response to considerable public interest.
