MUSICAL
GUYS & DOLLS by Frank Loesser

March 4 – 20 (Main Theater)
Director: Reed Martin
Music Director: Dr. Eve-Anne Wilkes
Choreographer: Pam Rogers

Guys And Dolls is an oddball romantic comedy. Gambler Nathan Detroit tries to find the cash to set up the biggest craps game in town while the authorities breathe down his neck; meanwhile, his girlfriend, nightclub performer Adelaide, laments that they've been engaged for 14 years. Nathan turns to fellow gambler Sky Masterson for the dough, but Sky ends up chasing the straight-laced missionary Sarah Brown. Guys And Dolls is a crowd pleaser, with a fantastic musical score, and comic storyline, the show is a treat for audiences of all ages.
