Adelaide: The Revival

In October and November, I had the honor of playing the comedic leading lady named Adelaide in The Island Players' production of Guys and Dolls. Adelaide and her Hot Box girls were ditzy singer/dancer night club entertainers who spoke in high pitch New Yorker accents. We made sure our voices were ear-piercing, to say the least.

We were asked to perform at The Island Players' Christmas concert and revive our characters in a rendition of "Santa Baby." Ginny revamped our Guys and Dolls costumes and scarecrows to fit the holiday theme. We were an absolute hit! [I also sang Amy Grant's "Breath of Heaven (Mary's Song)" but it wasn't nearly as fun as singing my with girls.]
