In the Wings: Antigone. Meet Maggie Pearl.

Maggie Pearl 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?
Maggie Pearl: I really like to act. It's fun, and Civic is great. My best friend, Nicole Johal, was trying out and I thought, "Why not?" Nicole is in the chorus, too.

Q: What does the Chorus do as a group?
M.P.: They guide the audience along in the play, and they tell you what's going on.

Q: Who is your favorite character from Greek mythology or literature?
M.P.: Probably Antigone.

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
