In the Wings: Tartuffe. Meet Kristin Walker.

Kristin Walker plays Loyal in Tartuffe, the fifth show in the 2011-2012 MainStage season at Civic Theatre of Greater Lafayette. The script is by Molière.

Question: Why did you want to be involved with Tartuffe?
Kristin Walker: I've never been involved with Civic Theatre, so I'm glad to be able to do a show here.

Q: What is Loyal's goal?
K.W.: Loyal's goal is to deliver a writ for the family to leave the house in the most pleasant way possible, delivering bad news with a smile.

Q: What do you think an audience will enjoy most about the show?
K.W.: They will most enjoy the comedic dialogue and action. Timothy Devery, our Tartuffe, is hilarious. Everyone's character is funny and enjoyable.

Q: Have you ever conned or been conned?
K.W.: I have never been conned; I perhaps have conned my parents on an occasion or two.

Tartuffe opens Friday, May 11 and runs through Sunday, May 27 at the historic Monon Depot Theatre at the corner of 5th Street and North Street in downtown Lafayette.

Friday and Saturday shows begin at 7:30 p.m. Sunday shows begin at 2:30 p.m. Tickets are $18 for adults, $15 for seniors and $10 for youth age 18 and under.
