In the Wings: The Somewhat True Tale of Robin Hood. Meet Emma Smoll.

Emma Smoll plays a Fawning Lady in The Somewhat True Tale of Robin Hood, the fourth and final production of the Civic Youth Theatre season at Civic Theatre of Greater Lafayette.

Question: Why did you audition for the play?
Emma Smoll: I really like theatre, and I haven't been able to do it for a while. I thought this play would be really fun to do. Also, my friends Tori Rosa, Ariel Laukins and Shane Guenin are involved with the show.

Q: What is your character like?
E.S.: She is kind of an airhead, but she really likes Prince John so she follows him around and agrees with whatever he says. I'm acting a lot, I'm more logical than a Fawning Lady.

Q: What will an audience enjoy most in The Somewhat True Tale of Robin Hood?
E.S.: There are a lot of jokes, and there are characters like Prince John who are really funny every time they're on stage.

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.
