Guys and Dolls in Broadway GUYS AND DOLLS
Players Guild of Dearborn
11/9-12/2/2018
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. 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 crap game in town while the authorities breathe down his neck; meanwhile, his girlfriend and nightclub performer, Adelaide, laments that they’ve been engaged for fourteen 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. Includes the classic songs: “Luck Be a Lady”, “Sit Down You’re Rocking the Boat” and “A Bushel and a Peck”.

A Christmas Story - The Musical in Broadway A CHRISTMAS STORY - THE MUSICAL
Riverbank Theatre
11/16-12/22/2018
YOU’LL SHOOT YOUR EYE OUT KID! Our final production in the 2018 season is based off the classic 1983 movie, and comes to hilarious life in this contemporary musical with all the flash and flair of Broadway! A Christmas Story chronicles young and bespectacled Ralphie Parker as he schemes his way toward the holiday gift of his dreams, and an official Red Ryder® BB gun. An infamous leg lamp, outrageous pink bunny pajamas, a maniacal department store Santa, and a triple-dog dare to lick a freezing flagpole are just a few of the distractions that stand between Ralphie and his Christmas wish. Book by Joseph Robinette, Music and Lyrics by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul

Hello, Dolly! in Broadway HELLO, DOLLY!
The Encore Musical Theatre Company
11/15-12/23/2018
The Encore Musical Theatre Company proudly presents Hello, Dolly!, running November 15th through December 23rd, 2018. Hello, Dolly! is directed by Jamie Colburn, music directed by Casey Baker, and choreographed by Rachel Costantino. Hello, Dolly! is a musical with music and lyrics by Jerry Herman, and book by Michael Stewart. The script was originally directed and choreographed by Gower Champion for the Broadway Stage. This blockbuster Broadway hit bursts with humor, romance, high-energy dancing, and some of the greatest songs in musical theatre history. Based on Thornton Wilder’s The Matchmaker, Hello, Dolly! follows widow Dolly Gallagher-Levi, turn-of-the-century matchmaker and “woman who arranges things,” as she travels to Yonkers, New York to find a match for the miserly half-a-millionaire, Horace Vandergelder. However, it becomes apparent early on that Dolly already has a match chosen for Horace - herself. While meddling in Horace’s life, Dolly can’t help but put her hand in elsewhere, as well. Ambrose Kemper, a young artist, enlists Dolly’s help in securing approval to marry Horace’s weepy niece, Ermengarde. Meanwhile, Cornelius Hackl and Barnaby Tucker, the two shop clerks of Vandergelder’s Hay and Feed, decide that while Horace is away, they will slip away to New York City to see the sights of the big city, spend all of their money, visit the stuffed whale at Barnum’s museum, and, most importantly, each kiss a girl. Dolly advises that the two gentlemen call on Irene Molloy, the owner of a New York City hat shop, and Minnie Fay, her assistant. Dolly’s careful and chaotic planning all comes to a head at one eventful polka competition at the esteemed Harmonia Gardens Restaurant. The Encore’s production stars Marlene Inman (Dolly Levi), Keith Kalinowski (Horace Vandergelder), Sarah Brown (Irene Molloy), and Doug Atkins (Cornelius Hackl); with Katy MacCutcheon (Minnie Fay), Cole Thompson (Barnaby Tucker), Anna Dreslinski Cooke (Ermengarde), Connor Giles (Ambrose Kemper), Angela Hench (Ernestina/Ensemble), Dale Dobson (Judge/Rudolph), Gayle Martin (Mrs. Rose/Ensemble), Mitchell J. Hardy (Stanley/Ensemble), Meg McNamee (Ensemble), Josh England (Dance Captain/Ensemble), Bryana Hall (Ensemble), Isaac A. Orr (Ensemble), Matilda Seagraves (Ensemble), Trevor J. Powell (Ensemble), and Dominic Dorset (Ensemble at certain performances).
