Lilly loves all sorts of things. She loves school, she loves dressing up, and she even grows to lover her "stinky baby brother," Julius. In fact, Lilly loves everything! At least, she loves everything most of the time. Even Lilly has some bad days, but when you have movie star sunglasses and a purple plastic purse, how bad can it be?

Lilly's Purple Plastic Purse will be performed Friday, November 16 through Sunday, November 18 at the historic Monon Depot Theatre in downtown Lafayette. The Friday and Saturday shows are at 7:30 p.m. The Sunday show is at 2:30 p.m. Tickets are $10 for adults, $5 for youth age 18 and under.

The mission of Civic Theatre of Greater Lafayette is to enhance the artistic and cultural environment of Greater Lafayette through theatrical productions and educational opportunities.
