In the Wings: Guys and Dolls. Meet Taylor Bundy.

Taylor Bundy plays Adelaide 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.

Question: Why did you want to be part of Guys and Dolls?
Taylor Bundy: I love Frank Sinatra and Marlon Brando; they were in the movie. I was like, "I want to be in the show so badly, and I want to be Adelaide so badly!"

Q: What is it like having to create a show in such a short amount of time?
T.B.: It's terrifying. I'm so scared. I want everything to be ready and right. It's scary and fun at the same time. You have to push yourself to be ready.

Q: In real life, are you more like a Save-a-Soul person, or are you a gangster?
T.B.: I'm a gangster for sure.

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.
