In the Wings: The Somewhat True Tale of Robin Hood. Meet Ariel Laukins.
Ariel Laukins plays Friar Tuck 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?
Ariel Laukins: I love Civic, and I will do anything I can to be involved.
Q: What is Friar Tuck like?
A.L.: I don't get any weapons because Friar Tuck is holy, so he looks down on the other Merry Men. In real life, I would be on stage, joining the Merry Men with their spoons.
Q: What is the best part of being involved with The Somewhat True Tale of Robin Hood?
A.L.: The cast. I love the entire cast.
