In the Wings: The Somewhat True Tale of Robin Hood. Meet Leo Crampton.

Leo Crampton plays Guard #2 and one of the Merry Men 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 try out for the show?
Leo Crampton: I tried out because I thought this would be a good experience. I heard Civic is a really nice place.

Q: What are your characters like?
L.C.: The Merry Man is trying to follow Robin Hood. On the other hand, both of the characters are very dumb, which is hard for me. I'm on the A/B honor roll at school.

Q: What are the best parts of being in The Somewhat True Tale of Robin Hood?
L.C.: The cast and all the costumes. They're all very funny.

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 are at 7:30 p.m. The Sunday show is at 2:30 p.m.
