Connecticut Theatre Company’s “Spotlight On…” series continues with a look into our talented cast and crew of Guys and Dolls. Get to know Chris Corrales!
Introduce Yourself to Our Audience:
What character do you play?
“ Big Julie’s the name, as long as there’s money, the name of the game don’t matter.”
What makes you most excited about returning to the stage after the pandemic?
I’m so excited to be able to be able to share my passion for music and theater with everyone again, it definitely wasn’t easy having to stay of a live stage for so long.
Who is your favorite character in Guys and Dolls? And why?
I’d have to say Agatha, I just long her passion and dedication, and quite honestly she quite the looker as well I coulda swore I’d seen her somewhere else as well, maybe the hotbox club? I can’t quite pin it.
What are you most excited for our audience to experience while watching our first production in over a year?
A whole heck of a lot, but if I had to pick something to harp on about probably just the passion and excitement from everyone both on and off the stage to be back at it once again.
Who inspired your love of theater? And why?
I really couldn’t name just one or a few people, so many people in my life have and are still inspiring me to love the theater. My parents definitely deserve a huge mention for always supporting me through the thick and thin of it all.
With music and lyrics by Frank Loesser and book by Jo Swerling and Abe Burrows, Guys and Dolls opens June 11th and runs through June 27th at Connecticut Theatre Company. Tickets on sale now!
