In the Wings: The Somewhat True Tale of Robin Hood. Meet Megan Chiu.

Megan Chiu plays the Lady in Waiting 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?
Megan Chiu: It was a spur-of-the-moment decision. I took up acting this year: I had a role in Don't Drink the Water at West Lafayette High School. My friend Maggie Furtner said she was going to audition for this show, and I said, "Take me along."

Q: What is the Lady in Waiting like?
M.C.: She's all about helping Maid Marian, but she also wants to be The Lady. She fusses with the dress all the time, fusses with the lady but she really wants that main role. She's ready for center stage.

Q: What will an audience enjoy most about The Somewhat True Tale of Robin Hood?
M.C.: The comedy. It's a hilarious show. There are a lot of little jokes here and there, and all the actors and actresses are really into their roles.

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 http://lafayettecivic.tix.com.

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.
