Coming Up: Guys and Dolls Jr. and Bring it On at Hillbarn

This weekend, see Guys and Dolls, Jr., and the next weekend, see Bring it On. These full scale musicals are a result of Hillbarn Theatre Conservatory summer program, with four weeks of intense rehearsals and a cast of more than 30 kids ages 11-13

Here's the plot of Guys and Dolls: Gambler Nathan Detroit, tries to find the cash to set up the biggest craps game in town while the authorities breathe down his neck; meanwhile, his girlfriend and nightclub performer, Adelaide, laments that they’ve been engaged for fourteen years. Nathan turns to a fellow gambler, Sky Masterson, for the money, and Sky ends up chasing the straight-laced missionary, Sarah Brown, as a result. From Times Square to the cafes of Havana, Cuba, into the sewers of New York City, eventually, everyone ends up right where they belong. This is one of the most revived musicals of all time, an oddball romantic comedy

Here's the plot of Bring It On:  Bitingly relevant, sprinkled with sass and inspired by the hit film, Bring It On: The Musical takes audiences on a high-flying journey filled with the complexities of friendship, jealousy, betrayal and forgiveness. Campbell is cheer-royalty at Truman High School and her senior year should prove the most important of her life – she's been named captain of the squad! But an unexpected redistricting has forced her to spend her final year of high school at the neighboring Jackson High School, where none of the rules seem the same. Despite having the deck stacked against her, Campbell befriends the dance crew girls and, along with their headstrong and hardworking leader, Danielle, manages to form a powerhouse cheer squad for the ultimate competition – the National Championships. With a heart-felt story and insane stunts, this is sure to be a show you don’t want to miss! In August, they perform Bring it On
