Saturday

Fire and ice: Kristin Wold presents "Thetis: Immortal Fire" in the Tina Packer Playhouse at Shakespeare & Company tonight at 5 p.m. A dance theatre performance inspired by the story of Thetis, the sea nymph of Greek mythology who was a shape-shifter and mother of the great warrior Achilles. Thetis tries to immortalize the baby Achilles by burning him in the hall fire by night and anointing him with ambrosia by day. The performance features Susannah Millonzi as the seagoddess Thetis, and Josh McCabe as Peleus, the mortal father of Achilles. For tickets call the Shakespeare & Company Box Office at 413-637-3353 or visit https://tickets.shakespeare.org.
