Glenholme Students Perform Guys & Dolls

(Washington, CT)



The Devereux Glenholme School - Guys and DollsWASHINGTON, CT - The Glenholme School will be host to Sky Masterson, Nicely-Nicely, Miss Adelaide and Nathan Detroit on Friday, August 19 as students perform Broadway favorite, Guys & Dolls.

The venue for the musical will be the new outdoor stage. Over 30 children are involved in this production and they are achieving something astonishing for their age and experience. A great test of their group social development with more group scenes than ever performed before, it also bears witness to the dedication of the Arts faculty who raise the standards of commitment to the students and program.

The story of Guys & Dolls revolves around Nathan Detroit, the organizer of the oldest established permanent floating crap game in New York, who bets fellow gambler Sky Masterson that he can't make the next girl he sees fall in love with him. The next girl he sees happens to be Miss Sarah Brown, a pure-at-heart Salvation Army-type reformer, and the stage is set for hilarious complications.

Through the Arts program, children learn different forms of artistic expression, and begin to integrate the positive feedback and influence they receive in class, to their external environments. Students spend time working on social skill domain areas such as cooperation, assertion, responsibility, empathy, and self-control. Through this learning process, they practice these skills to help foster effective communication strategies which benefits each child's overall learning and growth.

Guys & Dolls will be a climactic event for students and parents as the summer camp program at Glenholme draws to a close. With such a dynamic undertaking as this, all are eager for future productions of the Arts program as the new school year begins.
