Inver Hills Theatre Auditions: Antigone

September 7  and September 8, 2022 • 3 p.m.– 5 p.m. • Fine Arts Theatre

Inver Hills Theatre is holding auditions for Antigone, written by Jean Anouilh, translated by Lewis Galantiere, powered by Greek mythology, and based on the play by Sophocles, the ancient Greek tragedian. The Inver Hills Theatre production is directed by George M. Roesler.

This modern dress version of the Sophocles play follows the plot line of the original closely. Antigone, daughter of the cursed house of Oedipus, must defy authority to bury her brother, the fallen leader of a failed rebellion. Can one young person, willing to sacrifice everything, face down the power of a state determined to destroy her if she does not obey? Sophocles’ timeless myth pits the baser instincts of enmity and revenge against the power of love and reconciliation.
