Antigone, Presented by the Girls of St. Catherine's

April 30 to May 9, 2015 | On the Hertz Stage
Part of the Education Performances

Recommend for ages 16 +

The St. Catherine's drama club is struggling to put up its first school play—Sophocles' Antigone. As if staging this tragedy in an all girls’ Catholic school isn’t challenging enough, the cast’s beloved director ends up betraying them in an unforgivable way. And it’s almost opening night! The actors must then figure out the right course of action, all while rehearsing the classic play about impossibly difficult choices. What is the right thing to do? And must the show go on? 

The Alliance Theatre Teen Ensemble is a group of high school students from all over Metro-Atlanta, who are interested in performance, writing, and theatre production. The goal of the Teen Ensemble program is to give Atlanta area high school students an inside look into the work being done at the Alliance Theatre, and provide opportunities to create world class theatre experiences with a teen perspective.

We've officially hit summer here in Atlanta, and while temperatures are rising outside, we're staging the hottest dance party inside: The Dancing Granny. But with all there is to do this season, why should you grab the kids and come see the show?

A little known fact about the Alliance?
"We are the largest producing theatre in Georgia and if you break out our education department and its shows, that would be the second."

What is your hope for the future?
