A modern re-telling of the Antigone story, echoBOOM uses the tragedy of a high school shooting to explore today's society, says Centenary College's Carrie Rowlett.

Brandy Austin directs Caitlin Parrish's script. Both are Centenary students.

Nathan Wasson portrays Brody Greyson, "a boy born for poetry" and the shooter in the rampage, while Rachael Lee Magill takes on the role of Ash Greyson, culpable only of wanting her brother to be remembered as one of the lives lost in the tragedy rather than as a terrorist.

Marjorie Lyons Playhouse would like to advise audiences that the
controversial subject matter, adult language, and violence in this
production is not appropriate for children.

The cast and crew take seriously the content of the show and hope to provide a dialogue for the community at discussion sessions following each performance.

echoBOOM opens April 10th at 8 pm and runs April 11th, 12th, 17th, 18th, 19th at 8pm and April 13th at 2pm.

(318) 869-5242 for ticket information.
