ANTIGONE

Jean Anouilh's play Antigone is a tragedy inspired by Greek mythology and the play of the same name by Sophocles. The play was first performed in Paris at the Théâtre de l'Atelier on February 6, 1944, during the Nazi occupation. Produced under Nazi censorship, the play is purposefully ambiguous with regard to the rejection of authority (represented by Antigone) and the acceptance of it (represented by Creon). The parallels to the French Resistance and the Nazi occupation are clear, however. Subject to change.

October 4-6 at 7:00 p.m. in Fine Art Auditorium

Auditions announced at later date.

 

STUDENT PRODUCTION 

Students enrolled in the Play Production Class at BCC are responsible to mount their own production. Students select (or write) the play, cast it, rehearse it, design and construct sets, lights, props, sound plus market and publicize it. This is a pure hands-on experience.

November 4-5 at 7:30 p.m. in the Barton Fine Arts Auditorium. Subject to change.

Audition announced at later date.

FIDDLER ON THE ROOF

Fiddler on the Roof is a musical with music by Jerry Bock, lyrics by Sheldon Harnick, and book by Joseph Stein. It is based on Tevye and his Daughters and other tales by Sholem Aleichem and set in the Pale of Settlement of Imperial Russia in 1905.

The story centers on Tevye, the father of five daughters, and his attempts to maintain his Jewish religious and cultural traditions as outside influences encroach upon the family's lives. He must cope both with the strong-willed actions of his three older daughters, who wish to marry for love and with the edict of the Tsar that evicts the Jews from their village. Subject to change.

Auditions announced at later date.
