High school’s Guys and Dolls set to shine on stage

THE high school’s pre-Christmas production of Guys and Dolls will bring “energy and talent” to the stage – as well as many well-known musical numbers.

The show’s director Deborah Lyons has promised audiences at next week’s three-night run an array of “colourful characters” and a “great story” based on the Pultizer Prize-winning drama.

As the countdown towards Tuesday’s dress rehearsal nears an end, Ms Lyons said: “The enthusiasm of these kids is amazing – they are so talented and energetic. The Guys and Dolls characters are very colourful and it is a great story about how the Salvation Army are trying to convert the ‘sinners’.”

Corin Anderson and Fraser Knight will play the lead roles of Sky Masterson and Nathan Detroit and will take to the stage alongside their respective belles Sarah Brown (played by Emily Arnot) and Miss Adelaide (Catherine Hounam).

“There are two love stories involved,” explains Ms Lyons. “There’s loads of energy to the show, and there are some great songs that the public will know and love.

Tickets (priced £6 for adults, £4 for kids) available at the school office, at Gilroy’s on Howegate, KeyStore on High Street, and at Deans and Simpson’s.
