Every spring, Blair's theatre department puts on an exciting musical production and this year is no exception with the Broadway classic, Guys & Dolls. Starring seniors Katerina Klavon, Elizabeth Spilsbury, and Billy Griffis, along with freshman Langston Cotman, the show takes the audience through the exciting nightlife and romance of the streets of New York all the way to Havana, Cuba.
