Jay Duffer, MFA, assistant professor of theatre arts, said a major reason "Guys and Dolls" was selected for performance was because it offered strong, challenging roles for the seniors.

"When we select the season, first we look at our majors and who we have in terms of the students that can realistically do the plays or musicals that we're selecting," Duffer said. "I also take into consideration that my seniors need good senior roles, so I look at their strengths, and I also look at what ways they can be challenged and try to get them in material that will stretch them but is not so overwhelming that it can't be accomplished."
Duffer, who spent about 20 years in the acting biz before teaching at Huntington, said that even though musicals involve more technical work, such as choreography, scenery changes and accommodating a large cast of 35 actors, they offer features other plays can't.
"Musicals are a great form of escapism," Duffer said.
...
Duffer's wife, Melissa, is the choreography queen of HUTC musicals, although Duffer said he helps out occasionally.
""If I do anything she doesn't like, she changes it," he said.
Though the context of the play may be a bit old school-given that the play premiered on Broadway in 1950, according to broadwaymusicalhome.com, Duffer said it is a musical that withstands the test of time.
"It's such a funny script," he said.
