Lake’s theatre department is holding auditions for the upcoming musical, “Guys and Dolls,” on Monday, October 30 and Tuesday, October 31. Students who wish to audition should meet Mrs. Currie in the black box theater, Room 2037, in the new building by 3 p.m. on their preferred day only.

“It’s set in 1940s New York City, and there are two cultures of people in the show,” Mrs. Currie said. “One is the New York gangsters and the entertaining girls, and the other is a missional community that has come into New York to save all the souls.”

The school musical is an opportunity to get involved in afterschool extracurricular activities involving not just theater and choir, but also orchestra, band, and art.

“I’m looking for all kinds of students,” Mrs. Currie said. “Obviously, in a musical, I’m looking for singers, dancers, and actors, but you do not have to be able to sing really well or dance really well to audition for the musical.”

The story of the musical involves a young girl from the mission falling in love with a gangster with a bad gambling habit. The theatre department is also musicians to provide a live soundtrack for the performance.

“All of the fine arts are involved in putting on the show,” Mrs. Currie said. “It’s just a very cute, very fun, very upbeat, very comedic musical with big songs and dance numbers.”

The musical will begin showing on February 1 at 7 p.m. It will show again at the same time on February 2 and 3, and February 8, 9, 10. There is also one matinee performance on February 11 at 2 p.m. The show is about two and a half hours with a 15 minute intermission.

“Stop thinking about it and come do it,” Mrs. Currie said. “It’s gonna be so much fun.”

Students like Noel Jones and Michael Korth are good to go to for questions regarding the musical in addition to Mrs. Currie and Mrs. Blakey, the choir director.
