Guys and Dolls
14 - 16 June 2018
20 - 23 June 2018
Guys and Dolls is a musical, romantic comedy involving some unlikely New York couples: a high-rolling gambler and a beautiful missionary, a showgirl dreaming of the straight-and-narrow and a crap-game manager who is not an organiser! Set in the Manhattan of Damon Runyon’s short stories, the show tells of Nathan Detroit’s efforts to find a new place to hold his illegal, but notorious, crap-game. When the police find out about their chosen venue, Nathan quickly has to find a new home for the game but he doesn’t have the dough to secure the only place he can find.
Enter Sky Masterson, a gambler willing to take on any honest bet with a high enough reward. Nathan bets Sky that he can’t take a ‘doll’ chosen by Nathan on a date to Havana, Cuba. When Sky agrees to the bet, Nathan chooses the straight-laced Sergeant Sarah Brown, head of Broadway’s Save-a-Soul Mission. Sky thinks he’s been duped but is in for a big surprise when his efforts to charm Sarah are so successful that he falls in love with her!
Guys and Dolls takes us from the bustle of Times Square, to the dance clubs of Havana, to the sewers of New York City demonstrating the lengths to which a guy will go when he truly falls in love with a ‘doll’. There are gamblers and showgirls plus a smart policeman in this lively and exuberant show and the music is full of Frank Loesser’s wonderful tunes like ‘Adelaide’s Lament’ and ‘I’ve Never Been in Love Before’, the classic ‘Luck Be a Lady’ and of course ‘Sit Down You’re Rockin’ the Boat’…. and many more!
