Repertory Company High School For Theatre Arts
“Antigone contrasts two types of law and justice: the divine or religious law on one hand, and the law of men and states on the other.”
Repertory High School is back at it again, with their very own written versions of the play Antigone. Antigone is a tragedy by Sophocles written in or before 441 BC. It is the third of the three Theban plays chronologically but was the first written. Antigone is about two sisters wanting justice for their two brothers that had gone to war against each other with everything ending in tragedy. The screenplay tells a tale of Determination, Power & Femininity. Repertory’s talented students are putting together three different director’s visions of Antigone. The first version is based around The Salem Witch Trials of Colonial, Massachusetts between 1692 & 1693.
The second version flashbacks to New York City in the 90’s. Then last but not least the third version is based in Africa setting around the Zulu Tribe. So that’s 3 shows, 1 day, for the price of 1. The students of Repertory High School worked hard to write the scripts for each play as well as create all the stage sets, costumes and more. Everything going into these productions is a representation of all the freshman have learned this year at the Broadway Theatre school, and they can’t wait to show off their talents.
So be sure to support the students of Repertory High School as they finish out this school year strong. Also, follow the production of this play on Instagram @antigone_rep2018 to catch all the behind scenes footage and photos.
