Submitted by jolynn.ford on Sat, 12/01/2012 - 12:14

On November 7th, the students of Salem Jr. High School had the opportunity to watch the students of Salem High School perform the musical “Guys and Dolls”. This play/musical was based on a book by Jo Swerling and Abe Burrows, which was based off of two short stories by Damon Runyon, with the music and lyrics written by Frank Loesser. It was written in the 1950’s and is about gamblers in New York finding love.

The students of Salem Hills High did a wonderful job a recreating this musical and bringing it to life. Many of the students enjoyed the play greatly.
