More than 550 students in two casts from all 10 schools in the Cleveland Heights-University Heights City School District took part in the 2014 all-district musical, "Guys and Dolls." The students entertained near-capacity audiences in the Heights High auditorium in four performances, Nov. 6–9.

The show’s director,Craig McGaughey, was thrilled with the students’ performances. “I am so proud that all four performances were of such high caliber,” he said. “It is one thing to have a great show one night, but to maintain that excellence for all four nights—that is really exciting!”

McGaughey wanted to especially thank the “army of parents” who step up every year to serve as ushers, sell concessions, repair costumes and more, as well as “the students and adults in our stage crew, lighting and sound support and our amazingly talented pit orchestra—they all contributed to this show in many important ways.”
