In the Wings: "Retreat!" Meet Hope Quattrocki.



Hope Quattrocki plays Josie in Neil Radtke's Retreat!, the third show in the 2014-2015 Civic Youth Theatre season at Civic Theatre of Greater Lafayette.

Question: Who is Josie and what does she want?
Hope Quattrocki: Josie has transferred to the company from another branch in Scranton. She meets Wade and falls madly in love with him, and she won't stop until she can call him her boyfriend.

Q: Why did you audition for Retreat!
H.Q.: I wanted to do another show at Civic. It's a lot of fun to do shows with people who share a similar passion.

Q: What is fun about being in a mystery?
H.Q.: It keeps the audience on their toes. They won't know what's coming next. This play has a lot of turns, and you think you have it figured out but then there's something to surprise you.

Q: If you could set a mystery in any location, where would you set it?
H.Q.: A coffee shop, because there would be a wide range of people coming and going. Once the crime is committed, you're not sure who would be there and who would be held as a suspect.

The show runs Friday, February 13 through Sunday, February 15 at the historic Monon Depot Theatre, 320 N. 5th Street in downtown Lafayette. You can purchase tickets by calling 765-423-7529 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.
