In the Wings: Antigone. Meet Hope Quattrocki.



Hope Quattrocki plays Ismene 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?
Hope Quattrocki: I heard a lot of great things about Mr. Radtke as a director, and I was looking for a chance to work with him. I also wanted to gain more acting experience.

Q: Who is Ismene? What is she like?
H.Q.: Ismene is Antigone's older sister. She is the good girl. She follows the path, she doesn't want to do anything that would be considered wrong.

Q: Who is your favorite character from Greek mythology or literature?
H.Q.: Athena. She's wonderful.

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.
