In the Wings: Antigone. Meet Tori Rosa.

Tori Rosa plays the Chorus Leader 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?
Tori Rosa: It's one of my favorite plays.

Q: Who is the Chorus Leader? What is she like?
T.R.: She is the connection between the audience and what's happening in the play. In the more difficult parts to understand, she relates everything between the characters to the audience. There are nine members of the chorus, including the Leader.

Q: Who is your favorite character from Greek mythology or literature?
T.R.: Pandora, because she did whatever she wanted. Even though people told her not to open the box, she opened that box. She just went for it.

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 http://lafayettecivic.tix.com
