Teen Theatre’s GUYS AND DOLLS July 13–21

Flier

 

Set in Damon Runyon’s mythical New York City, 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 and nightclub performer, Adelaide, laments that they’ve been engaged for 14 years. Nathan turns to fellow gambler, Sky Masterson, for the dough, and Sky ends up chasing the straight-laced missionary, Sarah Brown, as a result. 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.

Considered by many to be the perfect musical comedy, GUYS AND DOLLS ran for 1,200 performances when it opened on Broadway in 1950. It received nearly unanimous positive reviews from critics and won a bevy of awards, including Tony Awards, Drama Desks, and Oliviers. Frequently revived, the show has been done with numerous all-star casts.

Bellevue Society for the Arts’ Teen Theatre presents GUYS AND DOLLS, July 13, 14, 15, 20 and 21. Friday and Saturday performances are at 7:30 p.m., and the Sunday matinee performance is at 2:30 p.m.

Tickets are $12 for adults 18+, and $8 for adults 60+/children/students through grade 12. Call 419-484-2787 for reservations beginning June 29.

GUYS AND DOLLS features a book by Abe Burrows and Jo Swerling, and music and lyrics by Frank Loesser. It is presented by special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI) and sponsored by Bellevue Kiwanis Club. It is directed by Jennifer Miller, Bellevue. Leslie Childers, Bellevue, assists.
