Nicole Johal 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?
Nicole Johal: This is my first Civic play. I just love acting, and I thought it would be a good opportunity because this is what I want to do for the rest of my life. I read the script before auditioning, and I thought it was interesting.
Q: What does the Chorus do as a group?
N.J.: We are a single entity, and we are like Creon's or Antigone's mind.
Q: Who is your favorite character from Greek mythology or literature?
N.J.: Aphrodite. I just like love, and she seems pretty cool.
