In the Wings: The Somewhat True Tale of Robin Hood. Meet Nate Breneman.

Nate Breneman plays Prince John 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 show?
Nate Breneman: Robin Hood is classic, and after I heard that it was the "somewhat true tale" and it is very Monty Python-esque, I knew I had to audition.

Q: What is Prince John like?
N.B.: His goal is to become King of England and be the most fantastic person in all the land. I'm not an evil guy like him. I don't try to behead people.

Q: What will an audience enjoy most in The Somewhat True Tale of Robin Hood?
N.B.: It's hilarious. The characters break the fourth wall constantly, and the audience is completely involved. It's humor that you would see only in Monty Python or Napoleon Dynamite.

The Somewhat True Tale of Robin Hood will run 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 purchased 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.
