High School Musical

The drama and chorus departments at Dobyns-Bennett are putting on "Guys and Dolls" this weekend. My lovely is the chorus director at D-B and is directing the music. Here is the article in the Kingsport Times-News.

Dobyns-Bennett High School is staging its own high school musical — and it has nothing to do with the East High Wildcats, Troy Bolton or basketball.

Instead, students and teachers from D-B’s chorus and drama departments have teamed up to tackle the intricate story of “Guys and Dolls” — a musical comedy originally described in its program as a “fable of Broadway.”

The Performing Arts Departments present “Guys and Dolls” at 7 p.m., Nov. 13; 2 and 7 p.m., Nov. 14; and 2 p.m., Nov. 15 in the school’s Nancy Necessary Pridemore Little Theatre.

Tickets for the show are $10 each, and will be sold at the door.

“There are approximately 30 students involved in the production,” said D-B drama instructor Debbie Coram.

“We have a musical theatre class this year that our chorus teacher teaches. It was an audition class, and then my forensics’ team, the Dramahawks, are involved in it also.”

....“This is a pretty mature cast,” Coram said. “We have some newcomers [to D-B productions], but they’re not necessarily new to the stage so we’re really excited about the performances coming up this weekend." (Read More)
