UNCG’s Theatre’s production of Sophocles’ “Antigone,” directed by John Gulley, opens on February 16, with a “pay what you can” preview at 7:30 p.m. The subsequent evening shows, on February 17, 18, 22 and 23, are at 8 p.m., and the matinée performances, on Feb. 19 and 26, are at 2 p.m. For ticket purchases, the Theatre Box Office is located at 402 Tate Street, in room 115 of the Brown Building, open 11 a.m. to 5p.m., Monday through Friday. For more information call 336-334-4392 and see Triad Stage’s website for online ticket purchases. Ticket prices are $18 for adults, $12 for students and seniors and $12 for UNCG students.
On Thursday, Feb. 23 (that is the corrected date), the production will be part of the Frame/Works series, a program that links scholarly work to artistic practice. Dr. Jen Feather from Women and Gender Studies and the English department, Wade Maki, from the Philosophy department and Dr. Derek Keyser from Classical Studies will make presentations at 5:15 p.m. in the lobby of the Brown Building Theatre. Their presentation will be followed by a dinner break from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m., before the performance of “Antigone” in Taylor Theatre. After the performance, Feather and Keyser will join members of the cast and creative team, including John Gulley, for a post-show discussion and Q & A. Audience members are encouraged to join in the discussion. Frame/Works participants may purchase tickets to the performance for $12. The pre- and post-show events are complimentary but seating is provided on a first come/first serve basis.
Correction: The Frame/Works evening will be Thursday, Feb. 23, not the 26th as earlier indicated in this post.
