Guys and Dolls at WHS
WHS music teacher and play director, Emily Patterson, lies out the plot of Guys and Dolls. “It is an oddball romantic comedy. Set in Damon Runyon’s mythical New York City,” Patterson said.
Gambler, Nathan Detroit, played by Wil Gastier (12), tries to find the cash to set up the biggest craps game in town while the authorities breathe down his neck; meanwhile, his girlfriend and nightclub performer, Adelaide, played by Hope Kennedy (11), laments that they’ve been engaged for 14 years. Nathan turns to fellow gambler, Sky Masterson, played by Adam Kirk (12), for the dough, and Sky ends up chasing the missionary, Sarah Brown, played by Heidi Ebin (12), as a result. Guys and Dolls takes us from the heart of Times Square to the cafes of Havana, Cuba, and even into the sewers of New York City, but eventually everyone ends up right where they belong.
“It’s a really fun show and my first lead in a musical and it’s going very well. We have a strong cast this year and I’m really excited to have an audience in the seats to see it,” Kirk said.
The dates of the show are November, 12th, 13th, 19th, and 20th. Tickets cost 12 dollars for adults, and 8 dollars for students and senior citizens.
