This production of Guys and Dolls features a very talented cast of 25 performers. Included in the mix are several individuals who are keeping this theatrical experience in the family. Married couple Kurt and Tracy Bowen, partners Don Barrow and Robert Doyle, and father and daughters Tim, Bethany and Harmony Taylor have chosen to work alongside members of their own family in this latest Spotlight Players production.
Kurt Bowen who plays Sky Masterson, will join his wife Tracey on stage for a second time! “It's what we both love to do more than anything else - sing and perform,” said Kurt. “The only thing better than being on stage, is being on stage together! Since shows demand such a substantial time commitment from those involved, it also gives us more opportunity to spend quality time with each other. In fact, we try to pick shows to audition for that we believe would give us both the greatest probability of being cast, which brought us to Spotlight's production of Guys and Dolls!”
Don Barrow, who plays Big Jule, enjoys working with his partner Robert, “With his experience in theater and his help, I am always able to learn a new trick or two to get the audience to understand my character better.”
Bethany Taylor is thrilled to perform next to her sister and father in their first community production with Spotlight Players. “It's hilarious watching my Dad learn the dances and interact with the other ‘gamblers,” stated Bethany. “I also really like seeing my sister enjoying her passion. It has been great to have the opportunity to do something we all love, but to do it together as a family.”
Guys and Dolls will run on the main stage of The Village Theater at Cherry Hill from April 15-17 and April 22-24, 2016, with Friday and Saturday performances at 8 p.m. and Sunday performances at 2 p.m.
