Auditions for Teen Theatre’s GUYS AND DOLLS May 7, 8


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.

BSA presents FUNNY GIRL May 4–12


In the Ziegfeld Follies, in Hollywood films, and on the radio, Fanny Brice was one of the most celebrated entertainers of her time. With humor, talent, and chutzpah, young Fanny, an awkward Jewish girl, defies the odds and becomes one of the greatest stars of her generation. Her rise to super-stardom, and her turbulent romance with gambler Nick Arnstein, are explored through Bob Merrill and Jule Styne’s unforgettable score, which includes “I’m the Greatest Star,” “Don’t Rain On My Parade,” “People,” “The Music That Makes Me Dance,” and “You Are Woman, I Am Man.”

Bellevue Society for the Arts proudly presents the musical, FUNNY GIRL, Fridays and Saturdays, May 4, 5, 11 and 12 at 7:30 p.m., and Sunday, May 6 at 2:30 p.m., in The Hirt Theater, 205 Maple Street, Bellevue.

FUNNY GIRL features a live chamber orchestra, with music by Jule Styne, lyrics by Bob Merrill, and a book by Isobel Lennart based on an original story by Miss Lennart. Staging and Music Direction is by Nathan Maslyk of Cleveland. It is sponsored by The Bellevue Hospital and Anecdote Productions.

FUNNY GIRL is produced by special arrangement with Tams-Witmark Music Library, Inc.

Tickets are $12 for adults 18+, and $8 for adults 60+/children/students through grade 12. Call 419-484-2787 for reservations beginning April 20.
