Hitch a ride on this riotous romp through Ancient Greece, as Achilles leads a vast army of Spartans to conquer Troy and rescue Helen from the the wicked clutches of her kidnappers. Jam-packed with memorable characters, witty dialogue and catchy songs, Troy Story will thrill adults and children alike and is all you could wish for in a musical production. Truly the stuff of which legends are made!

Plot summary
Although essentially a Greek tragedy, this story is told with lots of comedy, both spoken and physical. Even the fighting scenes will raise a chuckle or two! Truly the stuff of which legends are made, Troy Story promises to be a hoot from the first rehearsal until the curtain falls on your final performance!

After the opening song (Troy Story), we witness Mount Olympus in turmoil; Hera, Athene and Aphrodite are arguing over which of them is the most beautiful goddess, much to the annoyance of Zeus and the other gods and goddesses. A mortal man, Paris, Prince of Troy, is summoned to Olympus and asked to make the tough decision. Each of the three bickering goddesses offers Paris a fabulous reward if he chooses her as the fairest (song – Pick Me, Paris), but it is Aphrodite’s promise to give him the most beautiful mortal woman as a wife which clinches it. Furious at this, Hera and Athene vow to bring destruction on Paris’ home city of Troy.

Sometime later, Paris arrives as a guest at the court of Menelaus, king of Sparta, and immediately falls for his wife, Helen, who just happens to be the most beautiful of mortal women! Keeping her side of the bargain, Aphrodite instructs the god of love, Eros, to fire one of his arrows into Helen’s heart. Helen then falls in love with Paris (song – Completely Stuck On You) and, in a trance, is whisked off to Troy by him. The furious Menelaus raises an army of Greek heroes (song – Hard As Nails) who, led by Achilles, set off to rescue Helen and bring her back to Sparta.

After a long journey, the Greeks arrive at Troy and lay siege, but they are beaten in their first battle against the pompous Trojans (song – Bunch Of Losers). In this battle, Achilles’ best friend Patroclus is slain by Hector, Paris’s brother. Devastated, Achilles then kills Hector, after a long chase around the city walls! The vengeful Paris and his father, King Priam, decide to lure Achilles into the city by using the charms of Princess Polyxena! It works and once Achilles is in his sights, Paris shoots an arrow into his vulnerable heel and kills him. The Greeks are overcome with grief at the death of their top man (song – Always And Forever), and revenge is swift. Philoctetes kills Paris in a duel, releasing Helen from her trance-induced love and, with her help, secret plans are made for the Greeks’ invasion of Troy.

The Trojans are curious as to what the hammering sounds are in the Greeks’ camp (song – Chop-Chop, Brother) and are then surprised to see their enemy’s fleet of ships sailing away from the shores of Troy. On discovering a huge wooden horse which is left, they believe, as a gift from their fleeing foes, they rejoice in their supposed victory and bring it into the city. As night falls, the heroes emerge from the belly of the horse and easily defeat the dozing Trojans! Finally victorious (song – Job Done) they return to Greece with Helen, finishing the tale with a resounding reprise of the song Troy Story.
