“Guys and Dolls” at BHS

 

Opening scene1 Guys and Dolls at BHS

It is time for the fall musical on the Berthoud High School Stage. This year’s extravaganza is the 1950’s Tony Award winning musical “Guys and Dolls.”

Set in lower Manhattan, the story centers on the passions of hard-core gamblers willing to wager on any variety of chance or situations. They are countered by Sergeant Sarah Brown (Maggie Stamets) who heads a local Salvation Army-like organization and her missionaries.

Nathan Detroit (Sam Kleber) is the organizer of the local floating crap game, but he is running out of places to play. He wants to hold the game at the local garage, but the owner wants  $1000 dollars up front and Nathan is fresh out of money. The pressure is on and to secure the money Detroit makes a bet he feels sure to win with Sky Masterson (Jon Nuehalfen) a big stakes gambler.

An unanticipated result of the bet is the beginning of romantic feelings between the gambler and the missionary.

Meanwhile, Miss Adelaide (Jessalyn Neuhalfen}, the star of the Hot Box Dancers and Nathan Detroit’s fiancée of 14 years, has had a long and frustrating engagement to the slippery Mr. Detroit and is just about to give up on him.

The play takes us through the ups and down of these relationships with the floating crap game as the backdrop. Finally, the ladies decide to accept their men just as they are, since they can always change them later.

In the final scene, several weeks later, many changes have happened.

This is a delightful production with Bridge-Between Choir members in the cast and with Karen Kleber’s magic touch on the choreography. Songs by talented Jessalyn Neuhalfen and Maggie Stamets are showstoppers. Mrs. Latchaw has done it again, another smash musical for the Berthoud Stage. Go, you will like it.

Show times are 7:30 on Friday and Saturday, November 17 and 18. A Saturday, November 19 matinee is at 2 p.m. with an evening show at 7:30.  Tickets $10 at the door, $8 if you buy them ahead of time at the school office.

Support our kids and have a great time while doing it.
