Annie Furtner plays General Cartwright in Guys and Dolls, the first of two summer productions from Civic Theatre of Greater Lafayette in 2012. The music and lyrics are by Frank Loesser; the book is by Jo Swerling and Abe Burrows. Next year Annie will be a sophomore at West Lafayette High School.
Question: Why did you want to be part of Guys and Dolls?
Annie Furtner: I've done the camp for two years, and I like it.
Q: What is it like having to put up a show in a few weeks?
A.F.: We have a lot to do all the time. It's pretty intense.
Q: In real life, are you more like a Save-a-Soul person, or are you a gangster?
A.F.: I don't know. If I had to pick, I guess I would be a gangster.
Guys and Dolls will run July 20 and 21 at the Tippecanoe CountyAmphitheater Park, 4449 State Road 43 North, West Lafayette. The shows begin at 7:30 p.m.
