Fall Production: "Antigone"
The Thespians of George Stevens Academy produced Emma Snow and Erin McCormick's fresh adaptation of the Greek tragedy "Antigone." Weather prevented a live performance, and filming was beset by difficulties, but the cast and crew worked diligently to record this production to share with you!

Our grateful thanks to Chris Kowalski and the custodial staff of GSA for their generous help with our set and props, Lori Sitzabee and Tony Rolfe for the loan of equipment, Chek Wingo for his invaluable camerawork and mentorship, Katrina Walls '16 for sharing her theatre training with the cast, and James Marsters for his guidance and support in the creation of this project.
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.
