The Jonesborough Repertory Theatre is excited to bring Guys and Dolls to their stage Aug 29 through Sept 15. This romantic and engaging musical, set in the 1920s/30s, will take you from the hustle and bustle of Times Square to the dance halls of Havana to the sewers of New York City.
The story follows two unlikely romantic pairings: high-roller Sky Masterson (Joe Gumina), who falls in love with mission worker Sarah Brown (Catherine Squibb); and the lovable rascal Nathan Detroit (Lucas Schmidt) along with his love interest, Miss Adelaide (Heather Allen), a headliner at the Hot Box Club.
Guys and Dolls is written by Jo Swerling and Abe Burrows, with music and lyrics by Frank Loesser. It features some of Frank Loesser’s most memorable tunes, including “Adelaide’s Lament,” “I’ve Never Been in Love Before,” and the classic “Luck Be a Lady.”
This production is directed by Joe Smith and sponsored by Morningstar Farm, Chick-fil-A (West Market St), Gary and Sandee Degner, and Sonia King/Mary B Martin.
Shows run Thursdays through Saturdays at 7:30 p.m., and Saturdays and Sundays at 2:00. Tickets are $17 general admission, $15 for students and seniors. There is also a special group rate for parties of 15 or more. (An interpreter will be provided for the deaf on Saturday, Sept 14, at 7:30 p.m. Tickets for these select seats must be purchased by Aug 24.) To purchase tickets, call the Historic Jonesborough Visitors Center at 423.753.1010 or go online to www.jonesboroughtheatre.com. (Photo credit: Adam Honeycutt Photography)
