Classic Musical GUYS AND DOLLS to Open Gladstone Theatre in the Park's 26th Season

Gladstone will open its 26th Season of Theatre in the Park with "Guys and Dolls". The show opens Friday, July5th and runs three nights consecutively through Sunday, July 7th. All performances begin at 8:30 p.m. and concessions will be provided by Gladstone Rotary.

New York, the city that never sleeps, and within it all human life; from the news seller to the chorus girl, from the gambler to the missionary - all of them caught up in the teeming vitality of the city streets.

First there is Sergeant Sarah Brown, of the Save a Soul Mission, vainly trying to spread "The Word" and make a difference to the sin and depravity of the streets full of tipsters, gamblers and con men. Then there's Adelaide, the showgirl desperate to leave behind her seemingly glamorous lifestyle for a white picket fence and roses round the door. She has been engaged to Nathan Detroit for fourteen years, but his top priority is finding yet another new location for his floating dice game to keep ahead of the law. Finally, the gamblers themselves, eager for just one more roll...and the coolest, highest roller of the all, Sky Masterson, who will bet on anything that will turn him a profit.

Don't miss the dicey action of this game as Sky pursues Sarah and Nathan tries to win back Adelaide's favor when they declare that guys will do anything for the dolls they love.

The book is by Jo Swerling and Abe Burrows. Music and lyrics are by Frank Loesser. Musical numbers include: "A Bushel and a Peck", "Luck Be a Lady", "Take Back Your Mink" and "Marry the Man Today".

Load up the family, blankets and lawn chairs and prepare for an evening of entertainment under the stars at the beautiful Oak Grove Park.
