In the Wings: The Honky Tonk Angels Holiday Spectacular. Meet Kate Martin.
Kate Martin plays Darlene in The Honky Tonk Angels Holiday Spectacular, the holiday show of the 2011-2012 season at Civic Theatre of Greater Lafayette. The show was created by Ted Swindley.
Question: How would you describe Darlene?
Kate Martin: She is a young, innocent girl who wants to be a big country star. She's like LeAnn Rimes or an early Dolly Parton. She sings innocent, happy country songs.
Q: What are your favorite holiday songs?
K.M.: My favorite is "Silent Night," which Verna Pasley sings in the show.
The Honky Tonk Angels Holiday Spectacular opens Friday, December 2 and runs through Sunday, December 18 at the historic Monon Depot Theatre at the corner of 5th Street and North Street in downtown Lafayette. Friday and Saturday shows are at 7:30 p.m. Sunday shows are at 2:30 p.m. For more information or to order tickets, call 765-423-PLAY (7529) or visit Civic Theatre's website.
