The Story of Princess Anna Porphyrogenita” School Musical

We are excited to share with you a wonderful production St. Demetrios Preparatory School is putting together for the kids and the community.

“The Story of Princess Anna Porphyrogenita” is a thrilling, historical, cultural journey through Music, Dance, and Theater.

Set in the year 988 AD, the Heroic Age of Basil II Emperor of Byzantium, the story chronicles Basil’s sister Princess Anna Porphyrogenita and her world-rocking marriage to Grand Prince Vladimir. The show also explores Penelope Delta’s incredible world, as envisioned by the great author, of Emperor Basil II’s Byzantine Greek Macedonian Renaissance, his struggles, victories, and aspirations for his people and family.

Our community is getting an “Off-Broadway ” experience for a very affordable price. Many student clubs and staff are participating. This Porphyra Foundation’s show has premiered in Carnegie Hall and Off-Broadway. This is a musical in the Rock Opera genre where it features Rock Guitars and Greek ethnic instruments such as the Tzoura, the Pontian Lyra, and Greek Percussion (Daouli and Dumberleki). It features school dancers, actors, a Greek Children’s Choir, and Greek folk numbers from the school dance groups. The Greek American Folklore Society (GAFS) is also participating and we have many more surprises in store. We also tried to include all ages.

Most importantly, this is a Fundraiser for St. Demetrios Preparatory School and all its wonderful programs so we urge everyone to attend and bring their family and friends.

The show is running for a full weekend and there are three dates.

June 24th, Friday at 7:00 PM
