We just began rehearsals for a youth production of Antigone I'm Assistant Directing and choreographing puppetry for at the Castillo Theatre and I couldn't be more excited. Together with an intrepid group of 12 young adults we are studying this ancient Greek play, pulling it apart and putting it back together in our own words. It is so amazing to see these young people grapple with the play's dense language and complicated themes, and then watch as they come to an understanding of the story, even relating it back to their own lives and experiences.
Performances are September 25-26 and October 2-3 at the Castillo Theatre on 42nd Street. Email the Castillo Box Office for tickets at BOXOFFICE@ALLSTARS.ORG or call 212-941-1234
