The Departments of Theatre and Music Present "Guys and Dolls"

April 13, 2010

The departments of theatre and music at Mount Union College will present "Guys and Dolls," at the Rodman Playhouse Feb. 21, 22, 27, 28 and March 1 at 8 p.m. and February 23 at 2 p.m.

 

 

 

 

The musical, set in New York City, is based on a story and characters by Damon Runyon. This oddball romantic comedy soars with the spirit of Broadway as it introduces us to a cast of vivid characters who have become legends in the canon: Sarah Brown, the upright but uptight "mission doll," out to reform the evildoers of Times Square; Sky Masterson, the slick, high-rolling gambler who woos Sarah on a bet and ends up falling in love; Adelaide, the chronically ill nightclub performer whose condition is brought on by the fact she's been engaged to the same man for 14 years; and Nathan Detroit, her devoted fiance, desperate as always to find a spot for his infamous floating crap game.

Everything works out in the end, thanks to the machinations of Abe Burrows and Jo Swerling's hilarious, fast-paced book and Frank Loesser's bright, brassy, immortal score. Funny and romantic, "Guys and Dolls" is ideal for audiences and performers of any age.

For reservations, please call the Rodman Playhouse ticket office at (330) 821-2565.
