Guys and Dolls was our second full scale musical at Skyline College.  After the success of Cabaret, we chose to produce another classic of Broadway Musical Theater.  Not particularly one of my personal favorites, the production was difficult to pull off for the scale of the scenery that had to be built.  With so many full stage scenes that required so many cast members to be onstage at the same time, the limited wing space at Skyline made it very difficult to organize a working parking lot into the design.  One of my solutions was to “double-purpose” the wagons so they could be split and portray separate scenes depending on which side faced downstage.  With three drops rented from Fullerton Civic Light Opera’s scene shop and the rest of the scenery built right there on stage, we managed to portray the memorable and loveable musical with the grandeur it required.
