Empowering, expressive, revelatory
Fall Production: "Antigone"
The Thespians of GSA will produce Emma Snow and Erin McCormick's fresh adapation of the Greek tragedy "Antigone." Over a 48-hour period, a young princess risks a sentence of death to defy a law she considers unjust, while her loved ones try to persuade against it before it is too late.
A live performance of the play will take place on the GSA front lawn on Sunday, Nov. 14, at 2 P.M. Seating is limited. Masks requested for all audience members, please, as our actors can't wear theirs. As the show will be outside, dress accordingly for your comfort. The performance is free, but donations to support the Thespians of GSA are always gratefully accepted.
A filmed version of the play will be released in early December.

In addition to those named above, there are a few more students who may play citizens and soldiers in the crowd scenes.
The objectives of the our group, apart from having fun, are to grow as actors and strengthen our abilities to be truthful, brave, bold, flexible, and supportive on stage or in front of a camera.
