Come see Hightstown High School’s Fall Play, “Argonuts: Jason and the Quest for the Golden Fleece” by Scott Lynch-Giddings. Tickets are on sale now through Ticket Spicket for our show on November 17 at 7pm and November 18 at 2 and 7pm.
Argonuts is a creative, innovative, and truly hilarious version of the ancient Greek myth of Jason and his heroic quest for the Golden Fleece. When young Jason learns about his family tree, he embarks on a quest to take back the kingdom that is rightfully his. He’s joined by the Argonauts, a band of strong heroes, who help him fulfill his destiny. Packed with laughs, a wild cast of characters, and just a hint of treachery, Argonuts is “a comedy of tragic proportions.”
