In the Wings: The Music Man Jr. Meet Cody Walker.
Cody Walker plays Mayor 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 Mayor Shinn?
Cody Walker: Mayor Shinn is kind of the bad guy in the show. He doesn't want Harold Hill, played by Aaron Brehm, to create a band. He's an awful person.
Q: What has been the best part of camp?
C.W.: There are a lot of good parts about camp. I enjoy everything about it. I like learning more about acting and that aspect of it. I've been in several shows, but it's still good to learn stuff.
Q: What will an audience enjoy the most in The Music Man Jr.?
C.W.: The musical numbers are amazing and the choreography is really good.
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.
