In the Wings: The Stinky Cheese Man and Other Fair(l)y (Stoopid) Tales. Meet Abby Hummels.

Abby Hummels plays The Frog, Kid #2 and sings in the chorus of The Stinky Cheese Man and Other Fair(l)y Stoopid Tales, a musical based on the book of the same name by Jon Scieszka. It is the final production of the 2008-2009 Civic Youth Theatre Season at Civic Theatre of Greater Lafayette.

Abby wanted to audition for the show because she had a good experience last spring while performing in How to Eat Like a Child -- also directed by Melanie R. Buchanan and Laurie Russell -- and wanted to be in another show.

Abby described what it's like to become several different characters over the course of a show.

"It's a challenge to take on this many characters but it's still a lot of fun," she said.

Abby concluded by explaining that audiences "will definitely enjoy the show."

The Stinky Cheese Man and Other Fair(l)y Stoopid Tales opens Friday, June 5 and runs through June 7. The Friday and Saturday evening shows begin at 7:00 p.m.; the Sunday afternoon show begins at 2:30 p.m. Tickets are $10 for adults, $5 for youth.

For more information about the show or to order tickets, please call 765-423-PLAY (7529) or visit Civic Theatre of Greater Lafayette's Web site.
