In the Wings: The Somewhat True Tale of Robin Hood. Meet Ashlyn Short.
Ashlyn Short plays a Fawning Lady 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?
Ashlyn Short: My mom was reading the script and laughing so hard that I decided to read it. I loved it the instant I finished it. I knew there would be a lot of people trying out, and I just wanted to take a shot at it.
Q: What is your character like?
A.S.: She's all about making sure that Prince John is beautified and looks good in public.
Q: What is the best part of being in The Somewhat True Tale of Robin Hood?
A.S.: The best part is that when Nate Breneman isn't here, I play Prince John for him. That's been my favorite part of rehearsals.
