Chattanooga Theatre Centre youth director, Maria Chatten Carter discusses the rehearsal process for Jean Anouilh’s adaptation of Sophocles’ Greek Tragedy.    “Antigone” is about a young girl who chooses to make a big sacrifice inorder to secure an honorable burial for her brother.    This play is a tragedy Carter explains, and it is also a piece of literature surviving from antiquity and a required read for high school students.     A play written about a young character qualifies as a play to be performed by a youth theater troup, Carter says and Heidi Bradway who plays the Queen in this production agrees.
