Our show is a one-act called Antigone Now by Melissa Cooper. "In the midst of a bombed-out city still feeling the aftershocks of war, the rebellious and intense Antigone defies her uncle to bury her disgraced brother. This contemporary response to the myth of Antigone brings powerful, modern prose to an ancient and universal story." - Playscripts.com
Participants must be in AT LEAST the 6th grade.
In addition to the actors, we'll need small teams for costumes, props, and sets! We'll only be using what we have in storage. We won't need a TON of people for these roles, but we'll need a few!

Still Life with Iris is a fantastical adventure which centers on a little girl's search for the simplest of things: home. Iris lives with her mom in the land of Nocturno a magical place in which the workers make, by night, all of the things we see in the world by day. In Nocturno, memories do not reside in people's minds but instead are kept in their coats. When the rulers of the island decide to make Iris their daughter, they have her memories removed and steal her away from everything she once knew -- leaving only a single button from her coat. Using the button as a clue, Iris joins with friends she meets on her journey to free herself and find her way back home.

"In this extraordinary play, a "room" and a "cage" and "people" and "captive birds" all become confused until a dramatic climax in which we suddenly see reality. Six women live in a locked room, each absorbed in her own petty interest and in placating the "Mistress" who takes care of them. Then a "Wild One" is thrust in among them. She talks of breaking out of the room to find freedom. She troubles the others who remain secure in their cage, and they all join against her in the shattering conclusion to this unforgettable play."

Always quirky, and sometimes bizarre, these eight tales are filled with magic, mystery, and morals."
