Players Club Of Swarthmore Presents GUYS AND DOLLS
The Players Club of Swarthmore opens its 2018-19 season with the Frank Loesser musical masterpiece Guys and Dolls Sept. 14-29, for ten performances at 614 Fairview Ave. in Swarthmore. Directed by Anthony SanFilippo, this classic musical comedy about sinners and saints follows Nathan Detroit as he sets up the biggest craps game in town under the eye of the law and straight-laced missionary Sarah Brown. With lovable gamblers and overdue fiancés, Guys and Dolls brings laughter and fun to the PCS stage with choreography by Meghan Schulz and Jess Wisniewski and music direction by Eric Thompson and Emily Szal.
