Performances are 10 AM and 12:30 PM on Friday and Saturday, and 10 AM on Sunday.

A new musical by the creators of “Lulu’s Lemonade Stand,” “Lulu and Mona vs. The Minotaur” is an adventure-comedy for the whole family.

The new tale brings together Lulu (Celia Cota) from “Lulu’s Lemonade Stand” and Mona (Nora Canaday) from “The Kind of True Story of Mona Coyote.” “Lulu” was based on Homer’s “The Odyssey,” and “Mona” was based on Miguel de Cervantes’ classic tale, “Don Quixote.”

The 10-person ensemble includes Ms. Cota and Ms. Canaday along with six other young actors performing alongside Cotuit favorites Anthony Teixeira and Hannah Carrita.

The book and lyrics are by Ms. McCarthy. Music is also by Ms. McCarthy, with arrangements by Henry Buck. Sander Goldman created the show poster. Music direction is by Anthony Teixeira. Choreography is by Hannah Carrita.

Tickets are $12 and can be purchased online. Cotuit Center for the Arts is at 4404 Route 28.
