In the Wings: Guys and Dolls Jr. Meet Erica Gibson.
Erica Gibson plays Miss Adelaide in Guys and Dolls Jr., the production mounted during an intensive four-week summer camp led by Civic Youth Theatre Director Melanie R. Buchanan.
Erica was part of the technical crew at last summer's camp, which culminated in a performance of Pirates of Penzance Jr. She thought it looked like a lot of fun, which is why she got involved in this summer's camp.
Erica said "Miss Adelaide is an over-the-top kind of person. She is a dancer at the Hot Box, which is a club. She has been engaged to Nathan Detroit for fourteen years, and has become very frustrated with him."
Guys and Dolls Jr. opens Friday, July 24 and runs through Sunday, July 26. Friday and Saturday evening performances begin at 7:00 p.m.; the Sunday afternoon performance begins at 2:30 p.m.
