In the Wings: The Somewhat True Tale of Robin Hood. Meet Maria Guido.

Maria Guido plays Maid Marian 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?
Maria Guido: I had never worked with Tamzin Malone before, and I wanted to do another show with Julia Spratt because this is her senior year.

Q: What is Maid Marian like?
M.G.: She's all about loving Robin Hood and making her Lady in Waiting do stuff. She's obsessed with skin conditions - they're her only form of insult. She's really flouncy and princess-y, and has a lot of sass like me. Normally I play a mom character, but Maid Marian is a very non-nurturing role.

Q: What will an audience enjoy the most in The Somewhat True Tale of Robin Hood?
M.G.: They will enjoy the evil Prince John ("Boo, hiss! Boo, hiss!"), the Town's Girl and the Sheriff. They're the three funniest parts in the show.

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 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.
