Auditions, rehearsals and performances will all be held at St. James Episcopal Church in Upper Montclair, NJ.


Creon -- Ruler of Thebes, a commanding, egocentric presence. Powerful, complicated.

Antigone -- Oldest daughter of Oedipus, noble, headstrong, idealistic, defiant.

Ismene -- Antigone's sister, pragmatic, representative of the "middle way."

Haimon -- Creon's son, hopes to marry Antigone. Forthright, sensitive.

Eurydice -- Wife of Creon, and Queen of Thebes. Kind-hearted, visionary.

Tiresias -- A blind prophet, bold, wise, militant, eccentric.

Sentry -- Timid and obliquely humorous.

Members of the Chorus -- The Chorus is the heart and soul of the play. The individual members -- each of whom have several speeches -- are eloquent, intelligent, and civic-minded. Their recitations serve as both summary and conscience of the play

Orator -- Sets the tone at the beginning of the play as he reads from a scroll, returns at the end of the play for the tragic peroration.

Dancers and Musicians -- Key figures in creating the bizarre ambiance of the play, performed originally as part of festival of worship for the god Dionysus.
