Sit Down, You’re Rocking the Boat

The Pirate Players perform the show “Guys and Dolls”

The Crapshooters hold their hats up high during “The Oldest Established.”

On March 7, 8, and 9, the spring musical “Guys and Dolls” was put on for the public. The show went swimmingly, as did the matinees. As always, the show took a lot of time and effort, but the actors persisted and put on a great show. Actors such as sophomore Stevie Myers, who played Ginger, had lots of scenes she participated and sang in, so Myers was busy even while she was backstage.

“[The hardest part was] probably time management, rehearsals take a lot of your time and I had a bunch of costume changes so I was trying to get changed quickly throughout the shows,” Myers said.

The students who performed also had parts in the show that they enjoyed getting to show to the public. 

“My favorite part is definitely A Bushel and a Peck with the little chicken outfit, it was so cute,” Myers said.

I liked Oldest Established, we all sang really well.

— Daniel Waters


Actors, as they are rehearsing and preparing for the show, hear the songs countless times. Like normal people, they develop some favorites.

“I like Sue Me, just because it’s nice, and I like Frank Sinatra,” sophomore Christian Gustafson, who played Benny Southstreet, said.

Sue Me seemed to be a backstage favorite.

“I liked Sue Me the most, I think it’s funny how they are arguing with each other the whole time,” Myers said.

Sophomore Daniel Waters, playing Rusty Charlie, enjoyed the time spent preparing for the performances.

“I liked rehearsing,” Waters said, “It’s a lot of fun, and performing was nice, getting to see all of our hard work come together.”
