In the Wings: Antigone. Meet Maggie Huston.

Maggie Huston plays a Guard 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?
Maggie Huston: I found out about auditions after I finished doing Schoolhouse Rock Live! Jr., and I was desperate to do something else. I really love theatre.

Q: Who is the Guard? What is she like?
M.H.: The Guard is a nervous wreck. If the Guard slips up, she probably will be executed. She's very nervous around Creon.

Q: Who is your favorite character from Greek mythology or literature?
M.H.: Probably Hades because he's very menacing. I think he's a good villain, and he's really interesting to read about.

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.
