On the Week of the 7th of February for four nights only on Monday the 7th, Tuesday the 8th, Wednesday the 9th and Thursday the 10th of February , the school I attend Tiffin School performed Guys and Dolls,the first musical since Coronavius.

 I was lucky enough to be part of it playing Angie the Ox( a crapshooter with one line but I can assure you that this line was performed impeccably) and a member of the ensemble. It was so great to be back on the stage after performing in previous school productions such as Oliver!(2019), Around the World in 80 Days(2020) and The Lower School Production in which students performed scenes on the theme of change and I received Star Actor for my multi rolling in one play as both the narrator and a woman.

Guys and Dolls tells the story of Sky Masterson, who falls in love with missionary Sarah Brown  and Nathan Detroit,who is trying to find somewhere to run his car game and has been engaged to Adelaide,  who is a headliner at the Hot Box Club, for fourteen years. The musical featured great musical numbers such as The Oldest Established, Guys and Dolls, Sit Down You're Rocking the Boat and Luck Be a Lady.

After months of rehearsing scenes and dance numbers over and over again and a hectic 3 days of dress rehearsals ,the wait was finally over and it was time for our work to be shown to other members of the school community.

It was great performing to a full house on many nights and producing 4 brilliant nights of performances.

Stephen Shakespeare,a student, who attended the performance on Tuesday night said “ I loved the show and the quality of acting was superb. My favourite musical number was Luck Be a Lady”

One thing that I miss now that the play has ended is annoying my friends with running through my one line repeatedly in order to perfect it and my accent .

I absolutely loved the experience, working with so many great actors and it will  be one that I remember. Congratulations should go to all the actors involved in the play and all the music and drama staff who helped make the play so brilliant.
