In the Wings: Antigone. Meet Alysa Cline.

Alysa Cline 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?
Alysa Cline: I love acting. I enjoyed The Somewhat True Tales of Robin Hood so much that I had to do something else.

Q: What does the Chorus do as a group?
A.C.: We're the consciousness of Creon and everyone on stage. We're partially a narrator.

Q: Who is your favorite character from Greek mythology or literature?
A.C.: Probably Athena because she's beautiful like me, and she's the goddess of wisdom.

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.

Tickets are $10 for adults, $5 for youth age 18 and under. Tickets can be purchased by calling 765-423-7529 or visiting

The mission of Civic Theatre of Greater Lafayette is to enhance the artistic and cultural environment of Greater Lafayette through theatrical productions and educational opportunities.
