Princeton Academy of the Sacred Heart Middle Schoolers Perform Guys and Dolls

Princeton, NJ (February 15, 2017) - On Friday-Sunday, February 10-12, Princeton Academy Middle School students presented their winter performance of the Tony Award-winning musical Guys and Dolls JR. They performed alongside students from Stuart Country Day School and the show took place at the Stuart Little Theater. Corinne Sekinger served as stage director and choreography, and Music Teacher Jonathan Britt  served as music director.  


A synopsis of the play provided by Musical Theatre International:


Set in Damon Runyon's New York City, the ensemble cast told the story of gambler, Nathan Detroit (played by eighth grader Zakir Zaidi of Princeton), as he tries to find the cash to set up the biggest crap game in town while the authorities breathe down his neck; meanwhile, his girlfriend and nightclub performer, Adelaide (played by Stuart eighth grader Ava Roche), laments that they've been engaged for 14 years without ever getting married. Nathan turns to fellow gambler, Sky Masterson (played by eighth grader Evan Lilienthal of Princeton), for the dough, but Sky ends up chasing the straight-laced missionary, Sarah Brown (played by Stuart seventh grader Caroline Bednar). Guys and Dolls JR. takes us from the heart of Times Square to the cafes of Havana, but everyone eventually ends up right where they belong.


"Our characters are faced with the option to move beyond themselves, finding new places in the heart to take risks, trust their hearts, and love more truly," states Sekinger. She continues, "Full of great moments, this show is fresh and full of life, just like its cast."
