About the Show: In this iconic story of unlikely love in New York City, “Guys and Dolls” takes us from the bustle of Times Square to the dance clubs of Havana to the sewers of New York City as it demonstrates the great lengths to which a guy will go when he truly falls in love with a “doll.” Voted best musical in 1950, “Guys and Dolls” features some of Frank Loesser’s most memorable tunes, including classic “Luck Be a Lady.” All performers in this fully-staged, Broadway-style musical are youth actors between the ages of 8—18. Special care has been taken to approach the subject matter as a family-friendly performance, great for all ages!
