In the Wings: The Music Man Jr. Meet Abbee Westbrook.
Abbee Westbrook plays Mrs. Paroo in The Music Man Jr., the production mounted during an intensive four-week summer camp at Civic Theatre of Greater Lafayette.
Question: How would you describe Mrs. Paroo?
Abbee Westbrook: Mrs. Paroo is an old Irish woman who's waiting for her daughter Marian, played by Annie Furtner, to find the man she will marry before she becomes an old maid.
Q: What has been the best part of camp?
A.W.: Being back on stage after doing work backstage.
Q: What will an audience enjoy the most in The Music Man Jr.?
A.W.: It's a musical that a lot of people from earlier generations grew up with. I think it'll be a walk down memory lane.
The Music Man Jr. opens Friday, July 29 and runs through Sunday, July 31 at the historic Monon Depot Theatre at the corner of 5th Street and North Street in downtown Lafayette.
