The Heritage Theatre, 2505 South Highway 89, Perry, is presenting “Guys and Dolls” based off the book by Jo Swerling and Abe Burrows, with music and lyrics by Frank Loesser. Two locals, Brook Wardle and Derek Sorensen have landed parts in the play and will be showcasing their talents until Sept. 17.
Wardle, 28, of Tremonton, auditioned for the play in May. When she found out she got the part of Miss Adelaide, she said, “I was super nervous because it is a lead and I have never been the lead before. I was nervous but excited at the same time. I was excited to take on the part.”
Wardle has been acting since she was about nine years old. She got her start by acting at the Garland Children’s Playhouse and then acted in a few shows while in junior high. Every year since she graduated Bear River High School in 2001, she has acted in the Garland Theatre Charity shows at the Garland Armory with Janet Carter, singing songs and doing a few dance numbers. Later she acted in “Beauty and the Beast” and “The Women of 2009” at the Heritage Theatre.
