Avalon Isle is dedicated to creating feminist theatre. Our purpose is to offer feminists an opportunity to express their voice through performance art. Avalon Isle welcomes all men and women who support these goals.
Eventhough I suppose they are referring to Greek gods, I could paint myself blue and go as Rama, but that might be sacreligious. Then again Hindus do dress up as Hanuman. Hanuman would be far more fun. He's a monkey and can leap like the dickens.

Do you think anyone will have the chutzpa to show up as Jesus?

Yeah, they will. This is Utah, after all and people show up regularly in what some might term sacreligious garb. I expect some heavenly mothers, too.
