Bless My Soul! Following its 2019 outdoor premiere in New York City, Hercules is back in this brand new production debuting at the Paper Mill Playhouse in winter 2023 - and don't worry, you won't have to brave the weather this time - it'll now be staged inside. Adapted from the classic Disney movie, Paper Mill's Hercules will feature music by the legend (and Disney favorite) Alan Menken, lyrics by David Zippel, and a brand new book by Kwame Kwei-Armah and Robert Horn. Lear deBessonet returns to direct with choreography by Chase Brock.

One of the most visually distinct and beloved Disney movies, Menken's glorious tunes (including 'The Gospel Truth', 'Go The Distance', 'Zero To Hero', and many more) make this story of a young demigod an infectious adventure about reaching your full potential that all the family can relate to.

What is the story?

In Ancient Greece the gods on Olympus reign supreme. Disaster strikes when Zeus' (the kingpin of all the Greek gods) newborn son, Hercules, is kidnapped and turned into a demi-god by the terrible god of the underworld, Hades. With Hercules no longer allowed on Mount, Olympus Hercules is adopted by a humble farming couple. 

As Hercules grows into a teenager he begins to realize that his super-human strength may be the key to finding out who he really is. Setting out on a quest to become a hero, young Hercules meets Phil, a cynical Satyr who was once a great trainer to the heroes. But Hercules doesn't have long before he has to meet his match - an army of titans directed by none other than Hades himself... 

Will Hercules be able to rescue Greece in time?
