Two area residents will participate in the presentation of “Antigone” at Southern Arkansas University at Magnolia beginning Thursday, Nov. 8.

Matt Graham of Sheridan, a performing arts theatre major, plays “Guard 3” on the Blue and Gold Casts for the play. Eboni Edwards of Pine Bluff, a junior performing arts theatre major is “First Guard” on the Gold Cast for the play.

The shows will begin at 7:30 p.m. Thursday through Saturday, Nov. 8-10. The weekend matinees begin at 2 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 11, and Saturday, Nov. 17.

There will be an actor talk-back following both Saturday shows, according to a news release.

“Written by acclaimed French playwright Jean Anouilh and translated to English by Lewis Galantiere, ‘Antigone’ is based on the Sophocles play of the same name. It focuses on a young woman who is faced with the moral dilemma of following the law decreed by her Uncle Creon, the king, or doing what she believes will provide justice for her family,” according to the release.

“The show is recommended for a PG audience due to content and mild violence,” according to the release.

General admission tickets are $17; $12 for SAU faculty, staff, and senior citizens; and $8 for students. Tickets are available at the door, online at, or by calling 870-235-4255. There are also new options available for season subscriptions.
