This January 14th and 15th, the First Light Theater group is putting on an original version of Antigone, adapted from the version written over 2,000 years ago by the Greek playwright Sophocles. The crew and cast is made up entirely of middle schoolers, and also involves high school students helping with direction and lighting. I'm deeply involved with the production—I was the one who adapted the play. The story hasn't changed, the words have just become a bit more modern—to make it easier for everyone to relate to.
This is an incredibly unique and exciting production, and we'd love to get people to come to see it from all over the state. So if you're able, please try and make it! Tickets are $7 for adults, $5 for students, and can be purchased at Frederick Tuttle Middle School or at Dorset Street Beverage, in South Burlington. They can also be purchased at the door. Performances are at 7:30 PM on both days, and take place at South Burlington High School.
