received top billing at
Meadow Brook Theater por-
traying Harrison in the
operetta Harrison Loved His
Umbrella.
Although he has appeared
at the Fisher and Meadow
Brook and is a member of the
Peanut Butter Players, Gur-
win still enjoys acting at the
high school and performing
with the Southfield-Lathrup
High School Madrigal
Singers.

Danny is a very focused in-
dividual," said Robert A. Mar-
tin, music director at
Southfield-Lathrup. "He
works hard and is open to
suggestions and new ideas.
His personality and personal
commitment are unques-
tionably an asset to the music
program at Lathrup; he's very
dedicated?'
Last year, Gurwin and the
other members of the
Southfield-Lathrup Madrigal
Singers went to Ocean City,
Md., and competed with 1,500
students in high school choirs
and bands from all over the
United States. Both
Southfield-Lathrup and Gur-
win received special recogni-
tion at the event. Southfield-
Lathrup received a ranking of
one for best madrigal singers,
best men's and women's
ensemble and best barber-
shop quartet. Gurwin took
part in all three events. To top
this off, Gurwin also received
the award for Outstanding
Male Soloist in the national
competition.
"I was speechless and
couldn't move," said Gurwin.
"To be recognized as the
number one soloist in the na-
tion was just mind boggling?'
This year, he is competing
in a classical opera competi-
tion sponsored by Maccabees
Mutual Life Insurance Co.
Sixty students from Michigan
high schools sent cassette
tapes of themselves singing
two classical opera songs, one
in English and the other in a
foreign language. And Gur-
win, who sang "Where'er You
Walk" and "Danza, Danza,
Gentile Fanciulla" in Italian,
was chosen to compete with
15 other students in the finals
at Oakland University's
Varner Hall.
Gurwin's acting abilities
have earned praise from John
Swords, theater director at
Southfield-Lathrup. "He's an
outstanding young man, and
he's as good as it gets when it
comes to acting," noted
Swords. "He is a real nice
young man to work with and
can play just about any role.
His talent is boundless."
Gurwin also speaks highly
of his school's music and
theater programs. "We are
really lucky to have such a

good vocal and theater
department at Southfield-
Lathrup," said Gurwin. "It is
a really wonderful school at
which to learn theater
because the productions are
so professionally stressed, and
there is a lot of interest in the
theater program."
Gurwin was only a
freshman when he starred as
Eugene in Lathrup's produc-
tion of Brighton Beach
Memoirs.. As a sophomore,
Gurwin once again received a
leading role. He played Tony
in Southfield-Lathrup's.
musical, West Side Story.
In March, Gurwin will star
as Seymour in Lathrup's pro-
duction of Little Shop of Hor-
rors. "Seymour is a character
With whom you have a great
opportunity to grow," said
Gurwin. "He starts off as a
weak character and grows, so
that by the end of the show, he
becomes very strong. Little
Shop of Horrors is a fun show
to perform; our cast is just
great."
Gurwin has also found suc-
cess on the school's forensic
team competing in dramatic
interpretation. As a
freshman, he interpreted the
character of Superman from
Feiffer's People and took first
place at each of the competi-
tions in which he took part.
Last year, he interpreted
the character of Paul San
Marco, a Puerto Rican

homosexual dancer in A
Chorus Line. Gurwin took
this piece all the way to the
state finals at the University
of Michigan in Ann Arbor
and finished second overall in
the state.
He is active in music and
theater during his summer
vacations. Gurwin attended
Interlochen National Music
Camp for musical theater and
choir in 1986. The following
summer, he performed in
"150 Spirited Years," a ses-
quicentennial salute to
Michigan, with Phil Esser
and Actors Alliance at the
Michigan State Fair.
This past summer, Gurwin
"had the time and experience
of my life."
"I went to a theater camp in
New York called Stagedoor
Manor Performing Arts
Training Center in the Cat-
skills," said Gurwin. "I just
had the most incredible time
working with the profes-
sionals there and made some
of my best friends forever
there?'
When he was-in New York,
Gurwin's theatrical talent
was not overlooked. After cat-
ching the eyes of many talent
agents, he settled with talent
manager Shirley Grant, who
represents several young
movie, Broadway and televi-
sion stars including Keshia
Knight Pulliam from The
Cosby Show and Allison
