In the Wings: Antigone. Meet Natalie Long.

Natalie Long 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?
Natalie Long: I really like Greek gods and stuff, and I love the Percy Jackson series. Also, I like tragedies like Romeo and Juliet where they end up killing each other in the end.

Q: Who is the Chorus? What does it do as a group?
N.L.: The Chorus is Creon's train of thought, what he's thinking at the moment.

Q: Who is your favorite character from Greek mythology or literature?
N.L.: Either Artemis or Athena. I like Athena because she's really smart. I like Artemis because she kills stuff and will never marry because men are boring.

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.
