Tori Rosa plays a Hot Box dancer 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 Tori will be a freshman at West Lafayette High School.
Question: Why did you want to be part of Guys and Dolls?
Tori Rosa: I did the Junior version a few summers ago. It was a lot of fun, so I thought I would be in the show again.
Q: What is it like having such a short rehearsal period?
T.R.: It is very hectic. We have a little free time, but we have to work on things all the time. You can't relax all the time, you have to work on something.
Q: In real life, are you more like a Save-a-Soul person, or are you a gangster?
N.B.: I would be a gangster, obviously. Do you see this hat?
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.
