Spring Musical, Guys and Dolls, a success

Sabrina Satterthwaite, Editor-in-Chief

 This year’s school musical, Guys and Dolls, is a show of singing, dancing, comedy, love, and acting all wrapped up in one package.

 “I chose to participate in the play because I really like fine arts, and I really like singing and dancing, and so I wanted to find some way that I could do this for the school,” Meghan Wray (9) said.

 “[Last year] I had a lot of fun making people laugh and have a fun time, and I wanted to do that again,” Rylan Case (10).

 “I love acting, and I love singing so doing a musical was exactly what I wanted to do,” Sydney Saline (11) said. “I was a tech for the musical last year, and I felt like I was missing out.”

 Tryouts were held in January, and the cast started practicing at 6 a.m. every morning shortly after. As opening night of the play got closer, they practiced after school also.

 “The hardest thing for this play was memorizing the words and songs,” Saline said who played Sergeant Sarah Brown.

 Opening night of the play was March 9. It showed every night for the next week excluding Sunday. The last night is tonight, March 16, at 7 p.m. at the Blackfoot Performing Arts Center.

 “The character of Sky is really fun because you get to act as smooth as possible to everyone,” Aric Vail (12) said. “It’s a perfect fit for me because I really like pretending to be cool.”

 “It makes me very proud that I can go on stage and forget about all the cares in the world and play Nathan Detroit,” Zachary Fairbanks (12) said.

 The play was a big bonding experience for those involved in it.

 “I was able to make new friends and grow closer to ones I already had,” Rylan Case (10) said.

 “I just really like the cast dynamic and hanging out with everyone and it makes it really fun,” Brooklyn Abercrombie (12) said.

 “The stage is a very vulnerable place where you make a total idiot of yourself on purpose. You have to trust that all those people involved are in it with you, and that’s awesome,” Hailey Pearson (12) said.
