Nate Breneman plays Arvide Abernathy 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 Nate will be a senior at West Lafayette High School.
Question: Why did you want to be part of Guys and Dolls?
Nate Breneman: This is the classic musical. It's part of history and I loved the idea of being part of it.
Q: What is it like having such a short rehearsal period?
N.B.: It's stressful, but it's a lot of fun too. I can't imagine what the directors and counselors go through in planning the entire thing.
Q: In real life, are you more like a Save-a-Soul person, or are you a gangster?
N.B.: Save-a-Soul, unfortunately.
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.
