Guys and Dolls JR

Last evening, I had the opportunity to attend the performance of one of my 6th grade students in the Jefferson Performing Arts Society's, Guys and Dolls JR. It was my first time in the first-class theatre and the musical was wonderful.

Set in Damon Runyon’s New York City, Guys and Dolls JR. follows gambler, Nathan Detroit, as he tries to find the cash to set up the biggest crap game in town while the authorities breathe down his neck; meanwhile, his girlfriend and nightclub performer, Adelaide, laments that they’ve been engaged for fourteen years without ever getting married. Nathan turns to fellow gambler, Sky Masterson, for the dough, but Sky ends up chasing the straight-laced missionary, Sarah Brown. Guys and Dolls JR. takes us from the heart of Times Square to the cafes of Havana, but everyone eventually ends up right where they belong.

Several of my 6th grade students were in attendance with their parents. I love the support that Big Jule {Bella}received. It is always interested to see how students interact outside the classroom. Bella is perfect on stage. She is a natural for sure.

Take a look at this preview:
