In The Wings: Honky Tonk Angels. Meet Darlene.

Honky Tonk Angels is the first show in the 2008-2009 Mainstage season at Civic Theatre of Greater Lafayette.

Katie Biehl plays Darlene, an 18-year-old girl whose mother has passed away. She leaves for Nashville to pursue her dream of singing music when her father ignores her and chooses to focus on his grief.

"One reason I auditioned for Honky Tonk Angels is the music. When I read the synopsis, I realized I knew and liked a lot of the songs. I'm a fan of the older style of country music, which is the style this show focuses on," Katie said.

She said another highlight of the show is the personalities of the characters.

"They are three very different people, yet they come together harmoniously," she explained.

Honky Tonk Angels opens Friday, September 12, and runs three consecutive weekends through Sunday, September 28. The Friday and Saturday evening shows begin at 8 p.m. The Sunday afternoon matinees begin at 2:30 p.m. There is a performance scheduled Thursday, September 25, at 8 p.m. To order tickets, learn about seating or ask other questions about the show, please call 765-423-PLAY (7529).
