In the Wings: Antigone. Meet Aaron Walker.

Aaron Walker plays a Chorus member in Antigone, the first Civic Youth Theatre production in the 2013-2014 season at Civic Theatre of Greater Lafayette. David Felshuh adapted the script from the original by Sophocles.

Question: Why did you audition for Antigone?
Aaron Walker: I've worked with Mr. Radtke before, and I really like him as a director. He's fun to work with. I jumped on the opportunity to work with someone I know and with a cast I've grown up with at Civic.

Q: What does the Chorus do as a group?
A.W.: We're basically Creon's followers, disciples of all the kings in Thebes. We don't get a say in anything, but we're there if Creon needs support.

Q: Who is your favorite character from Greek mythology or literature?
A.W.: Ares, the god of war.

Antigone opens Friday, September 27 and runs through Sunday, September 29 at the historic Monon Depot Theatre, 320 N. 5th Street, at the corner of 5th Street and North Street in downtown Lafayette. Friday and Saturday shows begin at 7:30 p.m. The Sunday show begins at 2:30 p.m.
