THATCHER — Eastern Arizona College’s Department of Theatre Arts is proud to produce Antigone, an iconic Greek tragedy, April 17-20, at 7:30 p.m. in the SC 3 Theater. There is also a matinee scheduled for 2 p.m., April 20
This production of Antigone, a completely student designed show, is one of tragedy, emotion, and exploration of justice. The play will take the audience through a journey of discovery concerning many of the great themes, symbols, and literary genius of the Greek playwright, Sophocles. Antigone features design teams made up of the students in the acting company.
“I’m excited for our audiences to see our adaptation of Sophocles’ Antigone because we took his original ideas and kept the integrity of them while exploring the human aspects behind the tragedy,” said Isaac Burton, who plays Eteocles.
The EAC Repertory Acting Company is thrilled for the community to come and partake this immersive theatrical experience. “My favorite part of the artistic process has been seeing our creation come to life,” said Megan Codling, who plays Polynices
