VIDEO: Watch Clips From GUYS AND DOLLS at The Players Guild of Dearman


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".

Guys and Dolls is directed by Kim Donovan with music direction by Paul Abbott and choreography by Xavier Bush. The production team includes Caitlyn Bringardner as Assistant Director with Alexis Bartrum and Loretta Bullock as Producers.
