The SRC Community Chorus will present the Tony Award-Winning Musical Comedy Guys and Dolls June 27-30, 2019 at the SRC Theatre in Taylor Hall. Leading the cast will be Canton native and stage/tv/movie actor Dustin Lewis in the lead role of Sky Masterton.
“Dustin began his acting career at the Fulton County Playhouse when he was very young,” said director Carol Davis. “The idea of Dustin playing Sky Masterson began about a year ago over lunch. It seemed impossible because of his busy filming schedule, but we are so pleased he could find the time to return home for a week and play Sky for us.”
Since leaving Canton, Dustin has amassed over 50 stage performances nationally and internationally, as well as several awards and recognitions. He currently lives in Atlanta, Georgia and has recently been seen on television in Ozark, Good Girls, House of Cards, Timeless, Turn: Washington’s Spies, Nashville, Swamp Murders, and portrayed the re-occurring role of Paul Revere in Sleepy Hollow. His recent film credits include First Man, The Hate U Give, Come Sunday, Killing Reagan and others.
