Guys & Dolls

Wednesday October 7, 2020

 

A classic musical for audiences of any age!

This musical romantic comedy involves a gambler and a puritanical missionary, a showgirl dreaming of the straight-and-narrow and a Craps-game manager who is quite the opposite.

 

Guys and Dolls takes us from the heart of Times Square to the cafes of Havana, Cuba, and even into the sewers of New York City, but eventually everyone ends up right where they belong. The musical demonstrates the great lengths to which a guy will go when he truly falls in love with a “doll.” Some of the memorable you will enjoy will be “Luck Be A Lady and “Sit Down You’re Rocking the Boat,”!
