In the Wings: Mame. Meet Cody Walker.

Cody Walker plays Junior Babcock in Mame, the fifth and final show in the 2013-2014 MainStage season at Civic Theatre of Greater Lafayette. Jerry Herman wrote the music and lyrics. Jerome Lawrence and Robert E. Lee wrote the book based on the novel "Auntie Mame" by Patrick Dennis.

Question: Why did you audition for the musical?
Cody Walker: This is the last Civic show for a lot of my friends, and I wanted to do one final show with them before they went off to college.

Questions: Who is Junior Babcock and what is he like?
C.W.: He is a playboy kind of kid. He's Patrick's roommate in school.

Q: What makes your life a banquet?
C.W.: My friends. They're so much fun.
