Jamie Soposky plays a Hot Box girl and a bobby soxer 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 Jamie will be in eighth grade at West Lafayette.
Question: Why did you want to be part of Guys and Dolls?
Jamie Soposky: I like acting a lot, so I wanted to do something over the summer that would be entertaining.
Q: What is it like creating a show in a short amount of time?
J.S.: It's exciting but it's really nerve wracking. You have to learn your lines really fast, and you have to work hard every night. You can't just work during the day, you have to work at night too.
Q: In real life, are you more like a Save-a-Soul person, or are you a gangster?
J.S.: I'm a Save-a-Soul person. I don't do anything bad.
Guys and Dolls will run July 20 and 21 at the Tippecanoe County Amphitheater Park, 4449 State Road 43 North, West Lafayette. The shows begin at 7:30 p.m.
