In the Wings: The Music Man Jr. Meet Ashlyn Short.
Ashlyn Short plays Gracie Shinn 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 Gracie Shinn?
Ashlyn Short: Gracie is clueless and doesn't know what's going on.
Question: What is the best part of the camp?
A.S.: The best part of camp is probably meeting new people and meeting new directors like Lori Portner.
Question: What will the audience enjoy the most in The Music Man Jr.?
A.S.: I think the musical numbers. They're really fun and upbeat.
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.
