MEDFORD - A Medford couple is bringing their love for puppets to life in a production that will take center stage at a Manhattan festival.

The production, called Mythos, is the brain child of husband and wife production team Shawn Thorgersen and Heather Van Velsor.

Mythos is the story of boy and his father who learn some of life's great lessons through four Greek myths.

A friend of the couple entered the script into the New York City Children's Theater Festival competition, and after much anticipation, they found out their production had been chosen.

"I've written for all the different theaters on Long Island," said Heather Van Velsor. "But I've never written something like this, something as large as this."
