Zan Santon plays Joey Biltmore and the M.C. 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 Zan will be in seventh grade at East Tipp Middle School.
Question: Why did you want to be part of Guys and Dolls?
Zan Santon: It seemed like it would be really fun. I like the time period of the 1950s; that really interests me. This is my first show.
Q: What do you think an audience will enjoy most about the show?
Z.S.: The craziness. It's pretty fun.
Q: In real life, are you more like a Save-a-Soul person, or are you a gangster?
Z.S.: I'd probably be a Save-a-Soul person; I have a strong faith.
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.
