In the Wings: The Somewhat True Tale of Robin Hood. Meet Shane Guenin.

Shane Guenin plays Allan Adale in The Somewhat True Tale of Robin Hood, the fourth and final production of the 2012-2013 Civic Youth Theatre season at Civic Theatre of Greater Lafayette.

Question: Why did you audition for the play?
Shane Guenin: I've never acted before, so I thought it would be a fun thing to try. I had done things with Civic before on crew.

Q: What is Allan Adale like?
S.G.: He's not very smart, his I.Q. probably is somewhere around "3." He's very peppy, though, and I think he would do anything to help out Robin Hood, even if he's not appreciated.

Q: What will an audience enjoy most about The Somewhat True Tale of Robin Hood?
S.G.: A younger audience will definitely enjoy the humor. The writing of the play is great because there are some jokes that an older audience will enjoy, but they will go over the little kids' heads.

The Somewhat True Tale of Robin Hood runs April 12-14 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. The Sunday show begins at 2:30 p.m.

Tickets are $10 for adults, $5 for youth age 18 and under. Tickets can be reserved in advance by calling 765-423-PLAY (7529) or visiting

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.
