Please introduce yourself and state your role in the show.

Hello! My name is Melody Zielke and I am Agatha and a Hot Box Dancer! 


Who is your favorite guy from the Guys and Dolls movie, Nathan Detroit or Sky Masterson?  Why?

Nathan of course! The actor playing him is quite dashing.


Who is your favorite girl from the Guys and Dolls, Sarah Brown or Miss Adelaide? Why?

I love how Sarah follows her heart and morals.


What are you most excited about accomplishing in your role for this show?

I love to dance, and learning Ellie’s choreography is very exciting! I hope to learn scandalous dances!


If you could be a part of Nathan’s gang, a Hot Box Girl, a Save A Soul Mission member, or Havana Night Club attendee, what would you choose?

Hot Box Girl! You get the most action! 


Tell the people something to get them excited for this show!

Beautiful people coming together to deliver a complex story about love and gambling!
