Guys and Dolls a big hit

Nick Rice, BHS Journalism

This last Friday and Saturday from 7-10 p.m., the musical Guys and Dolls was presented in the PAC. The students worked hard to make it a hit, and sure enough the auditorium was packed full of attendees, from students to grandparents.

The students put a lot of work into making the play a success.

“Rehearsals go for eight weeks, but the selection and planning goes on even before that,” director Katherine Cook said.

The play was a return of what was done years ago.

“We had chosen this play because we hadn’t done the play Guys and Dolls in a long time,” Cook said.

Cook was pleased with the amount of males who wanted to be in the play.

“We had a lot of guys interested and had such a large number of boys who wanted to be in it, and we could fit in as many girls that wanted to be in it too.” Cathy said.

Actors put a lot of effort to get selected for the part they wanted.

“Everyone has an equal chance of being selected, we do try outs where they sing and read the script,” Cook said.

The director was impressed by the students’ performance.

“I think that everyone did their best, and I’m proud of them,” Cook said.

Students also noticed the hard work put into this musical.

“I liked the play, and I thought everyone did a good job,” sophomore Jessica Steeb said.

The lead roles left a strong impression on the attendees.

“I think everyone did a good job, especially the lead roles, who were played by Taylor Wallis and Megann Lawrenz, a lot of my friends, like Drew Cheek did really well, too.” senior Keifer Halpin said.
