In the Wings: The Music Man Jr. Meet Annie Furtner.
Annie Furtner plays Marian 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 Marian?
Annie Furtner: Marian is kind of closed off. She doesn't want anyone to talk to her. She's closed off from the rest of the town, but secretly inside she's yearning for love and stuff.
Q: What has been the best part of camp?
A.F.: Seeing all my friends again and getting back on stage.
Q: What will an audience enjoy the most in The Music Man Jr.?
A.F.: The songs. They'll be, "Oh, I know that song! I listened to that song when I was a kid!"
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.
