Maya Vanderberg plays Ms. Clackinack 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 Ms. Clackinack and what does she want?
Maya Vanderberg: Ms. Clackinack is one of the employees. She does not want to be at the company retreat. She sees herself as above everyone else and is frustrated with everyone.
Q: Why did you audition for Retreat!
M.V.: I auditioned because I know a lot of people who have done a show at Civic, and I wanted to try it myself. I love acting, so I thought it would be a fun experience.
Q: What is fun about being in a mystery?
M.V.: It's fun because you know you're keeping the audience on their toes. You know what is going to happen, so it's fun to throw off the audience.
Q: If you could set a mystery in any location, where would you set it?
M.V.: I would set it somewhere crowded, like a school where everyone thinks they know everyone else.
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.
