Guys and Dolls


In this beloved 1950s musical comedy, dice-slinging gamblers, pious missionaries and glamorous showgirls come together for a light-hearted romp through New York. It’s a high stakes game of love as brash but charming Nathan Detroit bets Sky Masterson $1,000 to woo missionary Sarah Brown. Meanwhile, cabaret singer Adelaide tries to convince Nathan, her fiancé of 14 years, to finally tie the knot.

Peter Flynn (Into the WoodsRagtime) returns to direct this classic, featuring the showstoppers “Luck be a Lady,” “Sit Down, You’re Rockin’ the Boat,” “Take Back Your Mink” and more.

Recommended for 10 and older.
