"Guys and Dolls"

Gangsters and gamblers, missionary dolls, and showgirls turn the gamble of love into a high-energy musical in the five-time Tony Award-winning musical "Guys and Dolls," February 16 - March 4 at the Carpenter Performing Arts Center.  Based on the stories and characters by Damon Runyon, with music and lyrics by Frank Loesser and book by Jo Swerling and Abe Burrows, the show tops Entertainment Weekly

Rolling the dice is the vice of choice for Nathan Detroit (Matthew Henerson).  He has big spenders ready to join his latest illegal craps game, but he needs some serious dough to keep the game afloat.  He taps Sky Masterson (Jeremiah James), a man who’s known for his willingness to gamble on anything and everything. Their $1000 bet: Sky has to get prim and pious do-gooder Sarah Brown (Madison Claire Parks) to go with him on a jaunt to Havana. Nathan certainly likes the odds after all, he’s kept his own fiancée, Miss Adelaide (Bree Murphy), waiting for their trip to the altar for 14 years! As Sarah searches for sinners to reform, Nathan keeps looking to make his big score and Sky comes to find that love just may be the biggest gamble of all.  Set against the picturesque backdrop of New York’s Broadway, Guys and Dolls features one of the greatest musical scores, with hits that include: “I’ve Never Been in Love Before,” “Adelaide’s Lament,” “Bushel and a Peck,” If I Were a Bell,” and “Luck, Be a Lady.” This musical masterpiece is not to be missed!
