The Broadway classic Guys and Dolls will be presented by students in the Entertainment Technology and Music Theatre Performance programs at St. Clair College this weekend and next.

Organizers say that this year’s main stage production is a demonstration of the collaboration and teamwork required between both sides of the Performing Arts program in order to create a truly spectacular show.

“When you’re on stage with the set for the first time, it takes your performance to a whole new level,” says third-year Music Theatre student Julia Carrer, who stars as Sarah Brown. “It’s like magic.”

“Working with the Technology students makes us go even further in our performance,” adds Colton Abel, who plays Nicely Nicely Johnson, “They support us in so many ways.” The students in the two programs work separately for most of the semester, coming together in the days before opening night. Both cast and crew agree that the most exciting part of the rehearsal process is when the two sides of the production unite, and the finished product is finally revealed.

This collaborative spirit comes from the top down: Director Jeremy Ryan Mossman and Set Designer David Court lead by example, striving to create a production in which the artistic and technical aspects work to inspire each other. The creative team, who worked together in the 2012 season on St. Clair’s acclaimed production of Spring Awakening, also includes Musical Director Nick Morvay, Choreographer Kristyn Wiklanski and Costume Designer Agatha Knelsen.

“You need to have the right team to perform a show like Guys and Dolls. And we have the right team!” exclaims Program and Artistic Director Katherine Kaszas. “The cast, crew and creative team of this production have put together something truly spectacular that everyone can enjoy.”

The plays takes place April 11th, 12th and 13th this week and on April 18th and 19th next week at 7:30pm. Matinees take place on April 13th and 20th at 3pm.

Tickets are $20 for adults and $10 for students. You can purchase Tickets through the Chrysler Theatre Box office at 519-252-6579 or 1-800-387-9181
