More than 40 Guerin Preparatory High School students performed in the musical “Guys and Dolls” March 29-31.
The musical comedy about the underworld of gamblers and chorus girls of New York’s Times Square has delighted theater-goers since the 1950s.
“It is entertaining because it offers great characters, a great score and a fun love story,” said Kristen Mackie, the director and technical director.
The show features songs by Frank Loesser accompanying a plot borrowed by Jo Swerling and Abe Burrows from some of Damon Runyon’s stories and characters. One of the most popular pieces is “Luck Be A Lady Tonight,” made famous by Frank Sinatra.
Starring as Sarah Brown is senior Jenna Zacharias, of Elmwood Park. Sky Masterson is portrayed by junior Angel Centeno, of Elmwood Park.
Miss Adelaide is played by junior Kelsey Fortier, of Chicago; Nathan Detroit by sophomore Biagio Greco, of Chicago; and Nicely-Nicely Johnson by Jayson Acevedo, of Chicago.
Also contributing to the production are: Jordan Chua, music director; Jeni Donahue, choreographer; Ashley Woods, costume designer; Christopher Burpee, lighting designer; Tom Susin, scenic artist; and Joe Bruno, ad book layout.
