Guys and Dolls

We had been planning to spend this weekend at my grandparents' house for a long time now.  I scheduled in a haircut, we talked about dinner (because every meal has to be planned for) and then I brought up seeing Guys and Dolls.  I am facebook friends with a guy I carpooled with in elementary school, and he is the drama director of the local high school (where I would have gone if I had stayed living there).  My sister did theatre in high school, so we love seeing high school plays, especially musicals.

It was soooooooooooooooooo good.  I was so impressed!  I had never seen Guys and Dolls before, nor had I seen a play at this high school, so I had no expectations whatsoever.  The story is really really good.  I love old fashioned times like that.  And the kids did an amazing job!  They were all so talented.  Unfortunately, the lead role of Sky had an emergency appendectomy, so they had an understudy filling in.  He was good, but perhaps not quite ready for a lead role yet.  Overall though, I would highly recommend seeing this play or seeing another play an Peninsula High.  I know I will be trying to :)

Sounds like a great show. So glad you liked it. Thanks also for the movie suggestion. I just saw the commercial for Despicable Me.
