PROFESSIONAL standard costumes, scen-

Newhaven College’s annual musical, Guys and
Dolls, up for success when it opened last Friday
night at the Wonthaggi Arts Centre.
And the ensemble cast was right up to the chal-
lenge in a show that was particularly strong on
dance and movement, in and around the icon-
ic musical numbers led by Miss Adelaide (Abi
Boucher), the gamblers and hustlers including
Nathan (Byron Scothern), Nicely (Mack Wil-
liams), Benny (Noah Lugt-Cole) and Rusty (Jack
Montgomery) and the lead pairing of Sky (Tom
Barker) and Sarah (Jorgie Mae Thompson).
Dance and movement made its mark in the first
musical number Runyonland, featuring the female
dancers and continued to be a theme throughout.
It was the guys’ turn next looking for a place to
stage their gambling night in ‘The Oldest Established
Permanent Crap Game’; their colourful suits and
fine harmonies delighting the sold-out audience.
Miss Adelaide and the Hot Box Girls, in-
cluding Freja Campbell-Walker, Kate Maxwell,
Phoebe Methven, Emma Ward, Philippa Wayne
and Taylah Williams; had the benefit of some
wonderful costumes for their bright number ‘A
Bushel and a Peck’ and Sarah and Sky estab-
lished their roles in the atmospheric Havana.
It was a bright, slick opening half to the pro-
duction and it only got better from there culmi-
nating in the ‘Crapshooters Ballet’, ‘Luck be a
Lady’ and ever-popular ‘Sit Down You’re Rockin
the Boat’ led in expansive style by Mack Wil-
liams as Nicely Nicely Johnson.
It was a feel-good, genuine company show to
which young and old were able to contribute and it
left the audience clapping and cheering for more.
A lot of work goes into these productions
and director Will Hanley, musical director Kirk
Skinner and their team should be congratulat-
ed on what they have been able to achieve.
It was the second excellent school musical
to grace the stage at Wonthaggi within a month
and an indication that there’s a bright future
ahead for community theatre in the local area.
Newhaven students are
guys and dolls for a night

sion Band in one of the early songs in Newhaven’s Guys and Dolls.
