Saturday’s opening-night production of Aristophanes’ The Knights, which closes Genesius Guild’s summer season and runs through this weekend, began with a few words from Guild founder – and uncredited Knights scribe – Don Wooten, and it’s hard to imagine the evening commencing on a more charming note.

For 43 years, Don Wooten has been re-writing Greek history. His history lessons are anything but serious or classroom-worthy, and that’s all right with him. Wooten, the founder of Genesius Guild theatre group, has most recently altered the more outdated sections of Aristophanes’ comedy Plutus to make its already-quirky script even quirkier and more accessible to modern audiences. Wooten has added musical numbers and touches of local humor about bridge construction and the Mallards hockey team, and he addresses national issues such as war, education, President Bush, and television infomercials. With a bit of assistance from Aristophanes, Wooten has produced an appealing script.
